Eduardo returned to action for the first time since breaking his leg last February and created the winning goal as Croatia won 2-1 in a friendly against Romania in Bucharest.

He did not enjoy the happiest of returns as Birmingham's safety bandwagon ran up against the buffers of a superior Wigan team managed by the man who spent six years building the bulk of the side that remains at St Andrew's, Steve Bruce.
