Parker has Lars laugh

Scott Parker represented England for the first time since joining West Ham as Fabio Capello's side ran out 2-1 winners in Denmark tonight.

The West Ham vice-captain made his first international appearance since making his one and only start for the Three Lions back in 2006 as England came from behind to beat the Danes through goals from Aston Villa pair Darren Bent and Ashley Young - both players whom Eggert Magnusson tried to sign for United three years ago.

Parker - whose four appearances for England have come with four different clubs: Charlton, Chelsea, Newcastle and now West Ham - came on after the half time interval as replacement for captain-for-the-night Frank Lampard, another player with Hammers history. After a subdued start, the West Ham number eight began to get to grips with the game and ended up offering a solid, if no-frills, performance.

Irons right-back Lars Jacobsen featured for the Danes - at both left and right back - before being replaced on the hour mark by Michael Silberbauer. Neither Carlton Cole nor Robert Green, both late call-ups to the England squad, made it off the bench.

Despite a scare late on when Parker went down near the touchline following a crunching tackle, both players ended the game with no injury concerns - a huge boost for Avram Grant as he prepares his squad for this weekend's visit to West Bromwich Albion.
