A number of foxes went on international duty and some came home with great victories and probably coming back with happy faces as others experienced a different story.

Jannik Vestergaard scored one of the goals with him and Kasper Schmeichel both playing from start and appeared with excellence as they defeated Serbia 3-0.

Nampalys Mendy helped his Senegal to an impressive 1-0 win at home vs. Egypt, winning the qualification in total 3-1. Mendy will probably play an important part for Leicester as he looks to be the preferred alternative for an injured Ndidi, sadly not included in the European squad.

Ghana will also play in the World Cup after a 1-1 draw away to Nigeria. Daniel Amartey was massive and their away goal was what split him from Kelechi Iheanacho and Ademola Lookman who both was in Nigeria’s squad with only the RB Leipzig loan man playing.

Youri Tielemans played for Belgium in their 3-0 win vs. Burkina Faso. Also on show was Leicester target Charles de Ketelaere, but none of them was on the scoresheet.

Jonny Evans played one of the two N Ireland friendlies as they faced Luxembourg and Hungary. Evans played agains Luxembourg, winning 3-1, he was not included when they later played Hungary and lost that game 1-0. Evans came through his 60 minutes vs. Lux without any problems and will be fit and ready for Man Utd.

No luck for Caglar Soyuncu as his Turkey never came on level with Portugal in that 3-1 defeat. They also later lost a friendly 3-2 to Italy. Soyuncu played in both games from start.

Luke Thomas was on show for England U.21 in their 4-1 win vs. Andorra, but had to withdraw from their next match vs. Albania (3-0) as he picked up an unfortunate injury and looks to miss the game vs. Man Utd.
