Internationals: Gabriel, Saka, Tierney

Bukayo Saka

Seven of our players were in international action over the weekend.

Here's how they got on:
 
Kieran Tierney played the full 90 minutes as Scotland lost 1-0 to Slovakia in the Nations League. Jan Gregus put his side in front  after 32 minutes to give Slovakia their first win in Group 2. The result leaves Scotland top of the table after five games.
 
The defeat to Slovakia comes just three days after Steve Clarke’s side booked their place at Euro 2020. After drawing 1-1 with Serbia, Scotland won a dramatic penalty shoot-out 5-4 to progress to the latter stages of this summer's tournament.

Gabriel featured for the Brazil Under-23 squad in their international friendly match against South Korea on Friday. Our number six played the full match as his side ran out 3-1 winners on the road. Goals from Matheus Cunha, Rodrygo and Reinier cancelled out Lee Dong-Gyeong's opener to secure the win.
 
Bukayo Saka came off the bench for England in their 2-0 loss to Belgium in the Nations League on Sunday evening. The teenager replaced the injured Ben Chilwell just before half-time but was powerless to prevent England's elimination. A deflected effort from Youri Tielemans and a Dries Mertens free-kick ended England’s hope of progression.

Goals, assists, that nutmeg... the best of Saka's 2019/20

 
Alex Runarsson was also in Nations League action this weekend, playing the full match as Iceland lost 2-1 against Denmark.
 
Christen Eriksen opened the scoring from the spot in the first-half before Vida Orn Kjartansson put Iceland back on level terms with five minutes to play. Eriksen had the final word though, converting his second penalty of the game in added time to give Denmark a late win.
 
Mo Elneny played the full game as Egypt beat Togo 1-0 in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifying rounds. Elneny provided the assist as Mahmoud Hamdi gave Egypt all three points in Group G. The result leaves Elneny's side second in the table after three matches.
 
Elsewhere, Sead Kolasinac played the entire game as Bosnia & Herzegovina lost 3-1 to the Netherlands in Nations League Group 1.
 
Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum scored twice in 14 minutes before Memphis Depay made it 3-0 early on in the second half. Smail Prevljak then struck back eight minutes later for the visitors to make it 3-1.
 
Granit Xhaka played the full match as Switzerland drew 1-1 with Spain in the Nations League. Remo Freuler scored midway through the first half to give the Swiss an early advantage, before Sergio Ramos missed twice from the spot in 23 minutes for Spain.
 
Luis Enrique's side eventually found a late equaliser though, through Rodrigo. The 29-year old forward levelled the score in the 89th minute to put Spain into the next round.
