Cabaye Helps French Earn Draw

Written by Newcastle Utd

Yohan Cabaye was in action for France on Tuesday night, and we have a round-up of United's other international stars

Yohan Cabaye won his 19th international cap as France recorded an impressive 1-1 draw away at World and European champions Spain on Tuesday night.

Cabaye didn't feature in Les Bleus' friendly against Japan on Friday, but was back in the starting line-up for the 2014 World Cup qualifier at the Vicente Calderón Stadium, in Madrid.

And the midfielder played the full 90 minutes in the heart of the French side, helping Olivier Giroud's injury-time header cancel out a first half Sergio Ramos effort.

The result leaves France second in Group I, with seven points from their opening three fixtures, and only behind leaders Spain on goal difference.

Elsewhere, teenager Brandon Miele was handed a starting role for Republic of Ireland Under 19s as they came from 2-0 down to secure a draw against Germany in their European Championship qualifier.

Wearing number 14, Miele - who has played for Newcastle's Under 21s this season - was replaced in the 81st minute, having helped his nation launch a superb fightback.

Ireland found themselves struggling as goals from Sebastian Kerk and Samed Yesil put Germany firmly in control after just 28 minutes.

But it was all change after the break, with substitutes Sam Byrne and Ryan Coombes netting to salvage a point.

On Monday, Alex Nicholson was unable to prevent Wales Under 19s from slipping to a 2-1 European Championship qualifying defeat against Russia.

The defender was involved from start to finish as Gethyn Hill gave the Welsh a 64th-minute lead.

However, Ilya Zuev and Aleksei Evseev struck with time running out to win it for Russia.
