Eight of our players were in action for their respective national teams during the international break.

Bukayo Saka scored for England in their 5-0 victory over Andorra on Saturday. 

Our 20-year-old forward collected a smart pass from Phil Foden before smashing the ball beyond Josep Gomes to double the visitors’ lead before half-time. The win keeps Gareth Southgate's side top of Group I after picking up 19 points from their opening seven games.

Thomas Partey was also on the scoresheet this weekend as Ghana beat Zimbabwe 3-1 at home. Our No 5 scored his 11th goal for the Black Stars after winning the ball back high up the pitch, driving into the box and finishing down low at the near post.


Elsewhere, Kieran Tierney played the full match as Scotland beat Israel in dramatic fashion at Hampden Park. Eran Zahavi opened the scoring for the visitors before John McGinn struck back on the half-hour mark. Israel then restored their lead before the break through Munas Dabbur to set up an exciting second half.

In the 53rd minute, Lyndon Dykes levelled the scores to make amends for missing an earlier penalty. Scott McTominay then bundled home in the 94th minute to secure a deserved win for Steve Clarke's side.

The result leaves Scotland four points clear in second place as they aim to reach the World Cup for the first time since 1998.

Martin Odegaard played the full match as he captained Norway to a 1-1 draw against Turkey on Friday night. Turkey took an early lead through Kerem Akturkoglu before Kristian Thorstvedt equalised before the break. The result leaves Norway second in Group G after seven games.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang played the full match as Gabon lost 3-1 to Angola on Friday. The result leaves them bottom of Group F after picking up one point from three games.

Mo Elneny was also in action on Friday, playing the full match as Egypt beat Libya 1-0 at home. Omar Marmoush scored the game’s only goal to give Egypt their second win in three games in Group F.

Sead Kolasinac played the full match as Bosnia and Herzegovina won 2-0 against Kazakhstan on Saturday. A brace from Smail Prevljak proving enough for the three points.

Karl Hein played the full match and kept a clean sheet as Estonia beat Belarus 2-0 at home. Erik Sorga gave our young keeper's side the advantage after 53 minutes before Sergei Zenjov added a second deep into added time.
