Jonny Evans played 90 minutes on his 90th appearance for Northern Ireland.

Meanwhile, centre-back Wesley Fofana made his third appearance for France Under-21s in their 2021 UEFA U21 European Championships Group C opener against Denmark Under-21s at Haladás Stadion in Szombathely, Hungary.

Fofana played the full 90 minutes for his nation, who could not avoid defeat despite enjoying the majority of possession against their Danish counterparts in a 1-0 reverse. 

Finally, young shot-stopper Chituru Odunze, enjoying an invaluable experience while away with his nation’s senior side, was an unused substitute for the USA in their 4-1 friendly victory over Jamaica at Stadion Wiener Neustadt in Austria.

The triumph came courtesy of efforts from Barcelona defender Sergino Dest and Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Brendan Aaronson, as well as a brace from LA Galaxy’s Sebastian Lletget. The USA next take on Evans’ Northern Ireland in Belfast in a friendly on Sunday.
