BLACKPOOL’SRichard Kingson was powerless to prevent a Andy Carroll thunderbolt hitting his net, but the Ghana keeper had a night to remember as he helped his country earn a 1-1 friendly draw with England on his first ever trip to Wembley.

But the Seasiders star with most to boast about back in training after international duty is David Carney, who netted Australia’s opener in their 2-1 away win over Germany.

The left-back scored on the hour in Munich as Australia avenged their World Cup defeat by the Germans in last night’s friendly.

Kingson, meanwhile, could not deny Carroll a first England goal but made key saves to deny Ashley Young and James Milner.

Craig Cathcart helped Northern Ireland keep a clean sheet against Slovenia, but his countrymen wanted more than a 0-0 home draw to revive their Euro 2012 qualifying bid.
