Norwich City midfielder Leroy Fer played the first half of Holland’s World Cup warm-up victory against Wales at the Amsterdam Arena tonight.

Fer started alongside the likes of Dutch stars Wesley Sneijder, Arjen Robben and Robin van Persie in a 2-0 win against a Wales side missing their own top players Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey.

Robben opened the scoring in the 32nd minute before Fer was replaced by PSV’s Georginio Wijnaldum at the break. Robben then set-up Jeremain Lens for the second goal.

Young City striker Jamar Loza also made his debut for Jamaica, coming on as a late substitute in a 2-2 draw against Egypt at Leyton Orient’s Matchroom Stadium.

  • I want to be positive regarding the national team & I certainly dont read the papers as the grief they dish out makes zero sense, but supporting England is very much like supporting Norwich. I want to buy into the hype regarding the exciting young players but when it comes down to it we all know Woy will pick a defensive line up in true Hughton style. The Sterlings, Barkleys etc will be as far away from the starting line up as possible getting fleeting 15 minute bursts at the end. Better than nothing I suppose. My expectations are low to start with so ill likely be very happy with Englands World Cup effort. I feel for my friend who sits in the Snake Pit. He goes to ALL home & away england games, whether they are friendlies or not. Hope they put on a good show for him more than anything with all the money he spends.

  • Matt, I agrre totally with you, likewise I would have thought Woy would have played his first choice keeper in the remaining friendlies together with a settled defence rather than throwing in players who do not look up to the task. I really struggle to see how Smalling gets selected ahead of Davis from Hull, Lescott or ever our own central defenders. One thing is for sure, I would not swap Turner for Smalling. Likewise why play a winger at full back when there were plenty of decent right backs out there who could have been selected in the party, Walker from Spurs or even Richards from Manc City, who seems to be out in the cold.

  • Look on the bright side Brew if you were using snail mail all your correspondence and the constant rebuffs it'd be costing you a fortune. Well done to young Jamar and anyone know how well Fer played.

  • The Buddy system sadly. Like Ruddy said himself, Foster didnt come out of retirement as a gamble. He knew for a fact he would be on the place to Brazil. I find it so annoying that in the friendlies through out the year he wouldnt give Ruddy or Forster game time despite knowing full well what Joe Hart is about already. Yet get to the friendlies only a week before the world cup and hes giving his old buddy Foster a full 90 mins. Totally off topic but did anyone else find it odd how John Flannagan has come on a sub the last two friendlies despite not actaully being in the world cup squad? Whats the point?

  • Good to see that Loza got a start as well as Fer but the performance that stood out for me last night was that of Foster in goal for England for all the wrong reasons. How can any international manager think he is better than John Ruddy with so many heart stopping dodgy moments, fortunately none resulted in goals as the two conceded were perhaps unstoppable shots.

  • Yes, I know it so well, Mattias. They irritate you to the point where you get cross, then reject your reaction as "offensive". I console myself with the hope that it is attributable more to incompetence than it is to malice. Of course, it`s a bit of both. Inept AND nasty. :-( Btw; you are a star in the making. I only tease you `cos you`re worth it! ;-)

  • Come on MB, you know the drill. You can right a wide range of curse words without an * blocking out letters. Yet type a witty post without an offense towards an religions, people, places and it get filtered to the archant gods who then take 5-6 hours to decide whether they should post it. Then to really wind you up they will send you an email saying its been rejected because its a double post which wouldnt be so bad if the original had blooming been displayed. Surely there is a better method for this site to use?

  • Though I do agree with Frankie 85. Leroy occasionally showed he is potentially a good player and, as Steely says, the World Cup gives him a chance to re-establish his Hughton-despoiled career. Any "agent" involved will be anxious to maintain Fer`s market value in order to maximise his own cut of the proceeds. Agent Orange?

  • Grating minds think alike, Fagen! "The likes of" Leroy in the shop window, and Jamar making another small step in his career.

  • I thought we only paid about £4.5m for Fer anyway. Should he leave as seems probable (not based on anything other than gut feeling) I can see the board holding out for at least that. We might finally have to sell a player against our wishes but they'll hold on for the maximum fee.

  • If Fer plays and is reasonable during the WC we may get back a small percentage of the fee we paid for him.
