The international break ended on Tuesday, with a host of our players in action. Here’s how they performed:
Thomas Partey scored the winning goal as Ghana secured a crucial win in Zimbabwe.
The Arsenal midfielder – who was also on target when the two sides met on Saturday – powered home a sumptuous free-kick in the 31st minute to give the Black Stars all three points.
Meanwhile at Faroe Islands, Kieran Tierney played the full 90 minutes to help Scotland move closer in securing a World Cup play-off spot. Steve Clarke’s side were frustrated by their hosts until Lyndon Dykes bundled in from close range four minutes before the end.
Bukayo Saka came off the bench in England’s 1-1 draw against Hungary at Wembley. Roland Sallai gave the visitors a surprise first-half lead before John Stones equalised just before half-time. Bukayo came in to replace Jack Grealish just after the hour.
Takehiro Tomiyasu played a part in Japan’s important win over Australia. Ajdin Hrustic’s second-half leveller cancelled out Ao Tanaka’s early strike – but Aziz Behich’s late own goal handed Hajime Moriyasu’s side a vital victory.
Sead Kolasinac was substituted in second-half stoppage time as Bosnia and Herzegovina drew in Ukraine. Anel Ahmedhodzic equalised for the visitors late on, after Andriy Yarmolenko had given the home team a 15th-minute lead.
Nuno Tavares was part of the Portugal Under-21s defence that kept a clean sheet in Iceland. Fabio Vieira scored the only goal 10 minutes after the restart.
