- Youri Tielemans was part of Belgium's 2-1 win at home to Wales
- Çağlar Söyüncü played the first half of Turkey's 3-3 draw
- Luke Thomas came on as England Under-21s beat Italy Under-21s
Youri Tielemans started Belgium's 2-1 triumph over Wales at Stade Roi Baudouin in Brussels, which was secured thanks to first-half goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Michy Bastshuayi.
The Leicester midfielder played 76 minutes before being replaced by Hans Vanaken and while Kieffer Moore pulled one back for the visitors, it was the Red Devils who earned three points.
They remain second in League A Group 4, three points behind leaders Netherlands, who Roberto Martínez's men face on Sunday (7:45pm kick-off) in their final fixture.
Timothy Castagne was an unused substitute in Brussels, as was Wales goalkeeper Danny Ward. The shot-stopper could be involved when the Dragons host Poland at Cardiff City Stadium in three days' time (7:45pm kick-off). Wales are currently bottom of the pool, with one point from their five matches.
Tielemans lines up alongside his team-mates in Brussels.
Also in the Nations League, City centre-back Çağlar Söyüncü captained Turkey in the first half of their 3-3 draw with Luxembourg at Başakşehir Fatih Terim Stadium in Istanbul. It was 2-2 at the interval, with Marvin Martins' opener cancelled out by former Fox Cengiz Ünder's penalty.
Daniel Sinani then put the visitors back ahead, before Maxime Chanot made it 2-2. Gerson Rodrigues looked to have won the game for Luxembourg, but for an 87th minute goal from Ismail Yüksek.
The Crescent-Stars have now confirmed first place in League C Group 1 prior to facing Faroe Islands in Tórshavn on Sunday (7:45pm kick-off), in turn gaining promotion to League B.
Çağlar Söyüncü captained Turkey in the first half against Luxembourg.
Earlier in the day, Foxes full-back Luke Thomas played the final 20 minutes of England Under-21s' 2-0 friendly win over Italy Under-21s.
Replacing Levi Colwill in the 71st minute of the contest, the defender helped see out a clean sheet after Rhian Brewster's double inside the first five minutes sealed success on the road for Lee Carsley's side.
Next up for the Young Lions is another friendly against Germany Under-21s next Tuesday (7:45pm kick-off).
