Internationals Recap: Suarez, Sturridge Score and Denmark Get a Big Win

Michael Regan

Goals from Liverpool's strike duo capped a mostly successful day for the club's internationals, with Denmark achieving the result of the day in the Czech Republic.

Slovakia 1, Lithuania 1: Martin Skrtel's Slovakia missed a chance to climb into the top two of Group G by drawing at home with fourth-place Lithuania. Both goals came in the first half--Darvydas Sernas put Lithuania in the lead just before the twenty minute mark, and Martin Jakubko got Slovakia level five minutes from the break. Nobody could find a winner in the final forty-five, and now Slovakia don't have another chance until June, as they have a friendly on Tuesday with Switzerland.

Czech Republic 0, Denmark 3: Second-half goals from Andreas Cornelius, Simon Kjaer, and Nik Zimling led the way for Denmark, who got their first win of qualifying at the Andruv Stadium. The Czechs could have drawn within a point of Bulgaria with a win, but Daniel Agger's side were impressive, now looking to take themselves nearer to the Bulgarians with a three points on Tuesday.

Spain 1, Finland 1: Disappointing from Spain, who went with Victor Valdes ahead of Pepe Reina in goal and conceded a 78th-minute equalizer from Teemu Pukki to drop two points in Gijon. They'll now have to hope for a result away to France in three days, or else they continue to drift further away from the top of the group from the French.

San Marino 0, England 8: Daniel Sturridge came on and scored his first goal at the senior level for England, but really the most interesting thing about this match was the work of the San Marino FA on Twitter. They took ITV's coverage to task, slamming them for their "rude and ignorant" broadcast. I wasn't watching the ITV stream, but I can imagine that this is pretty much completely accurate. But hey, ENGLAND WORLD CUP CHAMPIONS 2014!

Uruguay 1, Paraguay 1: A wonderful Luis Suarez volley was undone by some silly defending from Uruguay, who still managed to bump up to fourth and an automatic qualifying spot with the draw. Uruguay will now travel to Chile for an important fixture on Tuesday, with the sides just a point apart in the standings.
