Stansfield scores for England

The last two games in the Four Nations Tournament take place this afternoon. There will be updates on the site.

Half Time Scores:

Ireland 1-1 Wales

England 1-1 Scotland

Adam Stansfield of Hereford United opened the scoring for England after just twelve minutes but Scotland equalised on 24 minutes.

The ball found its way through to DJ Campbell who outmuscled Kevin Souter in the penalty box and flicked it over Ally Ridgers. Scott Anderson raced back to stop the ball from crossing the line initially but before he could hook it clear Adam Stansfield charged in and bundled it over the line.

Stansfield turned provider for Englands second goal.

England took the lead just minutes into the second half through their captain Scott Kerr who ran on to a low Adam Stansfield cross from the right after the Scots had been caught on the with a driving counter attack.

Ireland (McGrory 40) 1-2 Wales (Lloyd Williams 20 G Jones 87)
