Wales reunite defensive duo

Montenegro 2-1 Wales

James Collins and Danny Gabbidon appeared to come through unscathed as John Toshack's Wales just lost out in a fiery friendly in Podgorica.

It was a particularly noteworthy evening for Gabbidon who has enjoyed a good pre-season with West Ham United but was making his first international appearance since December 2007. The 90 minutes he got on Wednesday evening will serve him and the club in good stead, and he had the added benefit of appearing alongside his club colleague Collins, who played for just over an hour.

Further forward, Jack Collison got another international run-out in midfield with the full 90 minutes. The home side had taken the lead just after the half-hour mark when Gabbidon's foul on Simon Vukcevic led to Stevan Jovetic scoring from the spot before Radomir Djalovic made it two on the stroke of half-time.

Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Sam Vokes - who could be up against the Hammers this weekend - pulled one back with a header soon after the interval. A touching note from the evening was that the Wales players were all wearing special badges on their shirts in support of former West Ham striker John Hartson in his fight against cancer.
