Wednesday night saw a couple of interesting international friendlies take place in both England and the USA.
In London’s Wembley Stadium, England drew 1-1 with the Republic of Ireland whilst over in Cleveland, Belgium beat the USA 4-2.
Brilliant night at Wembley and before we leave for Brazil I'd like to thank all the fans who supported me.
Chelsea FC took time to congratulate their star defender….
Baffled as to how Wes can’t get off the bench for Ireland?!! #shambles
Good to see @benfoster getting a run out!!
