Internationals: Nelson and Nketiah score

Three more of our players were in international action on Friday and Saturday night. 

Scroll down to find out how they got on.

Eddie Nketiah scored twice while Reiss Nelson also struck as England Under-21s beat Turkey 3-2 in Euro 2021 qualifying. The Young Lions made the perfect start when Nketiah slotted home from close range, but the hosts responded through Dogukan Sinik and Mert Meldur. 

Nketiah then finished Phil Foden's through ball to level with his fourth goal in five England Under-21s appearances, before Nelson drove into the box and beat Altay Bayindir to secure a dramatic win and lift the Young Lions up to fourth in Group C. 

Our young duo will be hoping to continue their winning run against Kosovo in Hull on Monday at 6.45pm (UK). 

Lucas Torreira played the first 45 minutes of Uruguay's last-minute friendly win over Costa Rica. Daniel de Arrascaeta and Jonathan Rodriguez scored to cancel out Celso Borges' strike.

Torreira could be in action once more in the early hours of Wednesday morning, when Uruguay take on the United States in St Louis at 1am (UK).

And finally, Bernd Leno and Matteo Guendouzi were unused substitutes on Friday and Saturday night, respectively. Our duo will be hoping to feature when Germany face Northern Ireland on Monday at 7.45pm and France take on Andorra on Tuesday at 7.45pm (both times UK).

We could have up to five players in action on Sunday. Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Sead Kolasinac go head to head as Armenia face Bosnia & Herzegovina at 2pm, before Granit Xhaka's Switzerland host Gibraltar at 5pm.

Sokratis could then be in action for Greece against Liechtenstein, while Dani Ceballos' Spain take on Faroe Islands, with both games kicking off at 7.45pm (UK).
