Harry Souttar had an exciting international week, scoring the opening goal for Australia in their 2-0 win over New Zealand. The game was played at Gtech Community Stadium, the home of Brentford FC. Souttar also featured for Australia in the previous friendly vs. England at Wembley, being defeated 1-0.

Wout Faes was in the starting line-up for Belgium in their game vs. Sweden, being postponed due to the terror attacks in Brussels, as two Swedish fans were killed. Timothy Castagne and Youri Tielemans were also starting players in the Belgian line-up.

Curtis Davies made his debut for Sierre Leone, at the age of 38, making his debut in the 2-0 friendly win vs. Somalia. He never made an England debut, being capped for Three Lions at U.21 level. His club career is still continuous, signing for Cheltenham Town this summer. Curtis Davies was with Aston Villa when he joined Leicester on loan in 2010/11 season, playing 12 games under Sven Goran Eriksson. Fantastic to see this as it is a a a special happening.

James Maddison was an unused sub for England vs. Italy. Harry Maguire had a good game in central defence as England went from 0-1 down to win 3-1, Harry Kane scoring two.

Mads Hermansen warmed the bench when Denmark took a step closer to next years European Championships. Kasper Schmeichel was the preferred choice in goal, seeing two balls going in as Denmark defeated Kazakhstan (3-1) and San Marino (2-1).

Abdul Fatawu was an unused sub for Ghana when they were defeated 4-0 in their friendly vs. USA. Jonny Evans was in the Northern Ireland line-up defeated 0-1 at home to Slovenia. Wales with Danny Ward in goal defeated Croatia 2-1 at home. Charlie Savage, son of Robbie, was an unused sub getting his debut in the 4-0 win vs. Gibraltar.

Talk about Kasey McAteer becoming a player for Ireland is on, as the young star, breaking through this season at Leicester with 5 goals so far, could be something to consider, with the Northampton born a bit awy from being called up for England duty, never capped at any level so far.
