Eight of our players were in action for their respective national teams during the international break. Scroll down to find out how they go on:
Kieran Tierney scored his first ever international goal as Scotland drew 1-1 with Poland at Hampden Park on Thursday. Our left-back played the full 90 minutes and gave his country the lead late on, heading home John McGinn’s inswinging set-piece to open the scoring. Krzysztof Piatek then levelled the game from the spot in the 94th minute to share the honours.
Nicolas Pepe was also on target this week, opening the scoring and putting in a fine performance against France as Ivory Cost lost 2-1 to Les Bleus in Marseille. Pepe stunned the home crowd with a fierce effort to beat Tottenham's Hugo Lloris at his near post, but it wasn't enough to secure the win. Goals from former Gunner Olivier Giroud and a late strike from Aurelien Tchouameni saw France seal the win.
Martin Odegaard scored as Norway beat Slovakia 2-0 in Oslo on Friday. Erling Haaland grabbed the opening goal for the hosts after 77 minutes before Odegaard doubled their lead just three minutes later.
Ben White started for England on Saturday as Gareth Southgate's side came from behind to beat Switzerland 2-1 at Wembley. Goals from Luke Shaw and Harry Kane cancelled out Breel Embolo's early opener to secure the win.
Granit Xhaka was also in action during the game, playing 90 minutes for Switzerland.
Mo Elneny played the full match as Egypt beat Senegal 1-0 in Cairo on Friday. Nancy defender Saliou Ciss turned the ball into his own net after four minutes to settle this one.
