We had six players in international action on Friday night.
Alex Iwobi’s Nigeria travelled to Algeria in World Cup qualifying, while Olivier Giroud, Laurent Koscielny and Alexandre Lacazette faced Aaron Ramsey’s Wales in Saint-Denis. Mesut Ozil also featured in Germany’s friendly against England at Wembley.
Scroll down to find out how they got on:
Olivier Giroud scored and Laurent Koscielny kept a clean sheet in France’s 2-0 friendly win over Wales. Antoine Griezmann put Les Bleus ahead after volleying Corentin Tolisso’s through ball beyond Wayne Hennessey, and Giroud secured the win after half-time, firing Kylian Mbappe’s pass into the bottom corner from inside the box. Alexandre Lacazette then replaced Giroud for the final 17 minutes, with Aaron Ramsey completing 90 minutes for Wales.
Alex Iwobi played 81 minutes of Nigeria’s 1-1 World Cup qualifying draw with Algeria before being replaced by Ahmed Musa. John Ogu gave the Super Eagles the lead on the hour mark, but Yacine Brahimi struck from the spot with two minutes remaining to salvage a valuable point for Algeria.
And finally, Mesut Ozil played the entirety of Germany’s goalless draw with England. Jordan Pickford saved twice from Timo Werner and Phil Jones blocked on the line from Leroy Sane as Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions clung onto a draw at Wembley.
