Jack Rodwell features in Watford win over Fortuna Dusseldorf

Jack Rodwell featured for Watford in their friendly win over Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Watford have a first win of pre-season under their belts after beating Fortuna Dusseldorf 3-1 to end their week-long training camp in Austria on a victorious note.

Isaac Success put the Hornets in the first half ahead against the Bundesliga newcomers, who equalised soon after. But Javi Gracia's men pulled away after the break to secure the victory through further goals from Troy Deeney and Jerome Sinclair.

The Watford Observer reports the second half saw Rodwell make a first appearance in a Watford shirt.

The former Everton and Manchester City midfielder is on trial with Gracia's side after having his contract at Sunderland cancelled and is hoping to secure a contract to again kick-start a career that promised so much when he was younger.
