STRIKE FROM MO
(Tuesday 10th October 2000)
Wycombe midfielder Mo Harkin did his international and domestic career a power of good with two goals for the Northern Ireland Under 21 side in their Euro U21 Qualifier in Iceland. Harkin made the score 3-0 in the 37th minute after Blackburn's Gary Hamilton and Ipswich's Sean Friars had both netted within the opening eleven minutes. The Wycombe midfielder added another just after the hour mark before Grant McCann put the Irish 5-0 ahead. The home side had a late rally with goals from Gunnarsson and Gudjonsson, while Wayne Carlisle was sent off for the Irish in the 90th minute as the game ended Iceland 2 Northern Ireland 5. Harkin, who also appeared as a substitute for the Under 21's in last Friday's 3-0 reverse to Denmark in Belfast, turned 21 in August and this will be the last season he is legible to qualify for the Under 21's side.
ROGERS GET CAP
(Monday 9th October 2000)
Wycombe defender Mark Rogers had to wait until the 90th minute of the Canada versus Panama World Cup Qualifier to make his International debut. Rogers was on the bench for the match at the Winnipeg Soccer Complex and came on to replace Daniel Imhof during three minutes of stoppage time. Canada won the game 1-0 thanks to an 82nd minute goal from Nottingham Forest striker Jim Brennan. It was the Canadians' first win in five games and also ends a run of five games without a goal.
Despite the brief appearance Rogers becomes the first player to gain a full international cap while at Wycombe and will have a chance to turn out for his country again when Canada take on Mexico at the Varsity Stadium in Toronto on Wednesday 15th November as Canada complete their World Cup campaign.
