Martin and Jarvis play for England U19

Young Canaries Chris Martin and Rossi Jarvis were both used as second half substitutes for England Under-19 at Walsall last night.

Young Canaries Chris Martin and Rossi Jarvis were both used as second half substitutes for England Under-19 at Walsall last night. But they were unable to do anything to stop Russia winning the European Championship qualifier 2-0 with goals from Pavel Mamaev and Artem Dzyuba.

Martin was given 26 minutes and Jarvis just nine as England suffered a defeat which will make qualification difficult, especially after Holland's win against the Czech Republic.

Ipswich striker Danny Haynes missed three chances to put England on the scoresheet.

It now remains to be seen whether team manager Brian Eastick will give either of the Canaries stars a start when England face Holland at Coventry on Thursday.
