Internationals: Trio qualify for AFCON 2021

Congratulations to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mohamed Elneny and Thomas Party whose countries have all qualified for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

Aubameyang claimed a goal and an assist as he captained Gabon to a 3-0 win over DR Congo on Thursday evening, while Elneny was an unused substitute in Egypt's 1-1 draw with Kenya.


Our duo will decide whether their countries go through as group winners on Monday, when Gabon head to Angola and Egypt face Comoros. 


After missing Ghana's 1-1 draw with South Africa, Partey is now available for the Black Stars' final group game against Sao Tome and Principe on Sunday.


Granit Xhaka and Kieran Tierney were also in senior international action on Thursday, playing the duration of Switzerland's 3-1 win in Bulgaria and Scotland's 2-2 draw with Austria, respectively. Both are expected to feature again on Sunday, when Switzerland host Lithuania and Scotland head to Israel in World Cup qualifying.


Bernd Leno and Alex Runarsson were both unused in Germany's World Cup qualifying win over Iceland, while Daniel Ballard was also on the bench for Northern Ireland's 2-0 defeat in Italy.


Eddie Nketiah and Emile Smith Rowe's European Under-21 Championship campaign got off to a rough start with England slipping to defeat against Switzerland. Our duo are likely to be back in action for the Young Lions' next game, against Portugal on Sunday.

And finally, Matteo Guendouzi's participation in the same tournament started in identical fashion. France fell to a 1-0 defeat to Denmark in the opening game in Group C. Matteo's next game is also on Sunday, against Russia.
