RE­TURN COULDN’T HAVE GONE BERRA

The Football League Paper - - TFLP -

IP­SWICH de­fender Christophe Berra made a su­perb re­turn to in­ter­na­tional ac­tion by head­ing home a late win­ner for Scot­land in their mid­week friendly against North­ern Ire­land.

The 30-year-old cen­tre­back hadn’t ap­peared for his coun­try since 2013, but made up for lost time by netting from Bournemouth debu­tant Matt Ritchie’s 85th-minute cor­ner.

The pair will go from friends to foes this Fri­day when Ip­swich host Bournemouth.

The Scots host Gi­bral­tar in a Euro 2016 qual­i­fier to­day.
