International round-up: Kiwior helps Poland to win

Jakub Kiwior in action for Poland against Poland

Jakub Kiwior played all 90 minutes as he helped Poland earn their first win of Euro 2014 qualifying with a 1-0 success over Albania on Monday night. 

The defender played at right-back for the contest in Warsaw, with Karol Swiderski netting the only goal of the game four minutes before the break to get the Poles up and running. That was Jakub’s 11th cap for his country since making his debut back in June.

There was also success for Matt Turner, who kept a clean sheet in the USA's 1-0 victory against El Salvador in Orlando to seal their spot in the Concacaf Nations League semi-finals in June.

Matt kept a clean sheet to book his team's spot in the final four in Las Vegas, as they aim to retain both their Nations League and Gold Cup titles during a busy upcoming summer.

Post-match, Matt's USMNT teammates helped him celebrate the announcement of his second child by participating in a gender reveal on the pitch:

However, Karl Hein couldn’t prevent Estonia’s qualifying campaign from starting with a loss after they were beaten by Austria in Linz.

An 88th-minute winner from Michael Gregoritsch denied the visitors a point, who had led through Rauno Sappinen’s opener, before being pegged back in the second half.

Meanwhile, Thomas Partey sat out Ghana’s 1-1 draw against Angola in Africa Cup of Nations qualifying, with what Black Stars boss Chris Hughton described as “a small injury issue and we felt it was too big of a risk to start him.”

At youth level, Lino Sousa made his third appearance for England under-18s in six days, as they rounded off their trip to Croatia with a 3-1 win against Switzerland. Our young defender played 64 minutes of the friendly, as the Young Lions returned home with two wins from their three matches.
