International duty: When Bennette will return to Wearside

Tony Mowbray has revealed when Jewison Bennette will return to Wearside from international duty.

The winger scored twice for Costa Rica during their 2-2 draw with South Korea in Seoul on Friday, and was an unused sub this morning as they beat Uzbekistan 2-1.

Speaking to, the Head Coach revealed when Bennette will return to North East England.

“The new lads have been away - Jewison was away in Seoul in South Korea, still is and won't be back in training until Friday,” he said.

“He gets back on Thursday evening, so it’s difficult to integrate them into a team when they’ve been halfway around the world.

“But I'd have to say Jewi - as we call him - has had a massive impact.

“The goal he scored at Watford and then he's been away with his country and scored a couple of goals as well, so he'll come back on a high and we've got to try and utilise things like that.”
