City's international break came to end on Tuesday evening, ahead of LCFC Women's return to Barclays Women's Super League action with a trip to Prenton Park to face Liverpool this Sunday, with a 2pm GMT kick-off.
Several Foxes have been in action for their countries, including Cayman, who played against the Lionesses once again, this time in Belgium at King Power at Den Dreef, winning 3-2 on the evening following a late penalty from Tessa Wullaert who scored twice against Sarina Weigman's side.
Laura de Neve opened the scoring nine minutes in with a direct free-kick, before Lucy Bronze and Fran Kirby gave England the lead at the break. But a brace from Wullaert put Belgium back in front, before Cayman was given the armband to see out added time against the Lionesses.
Contesting the Lionesses.
The win sees Belgium leapfrog England into second place of League A Group 1 with seven points, two behind the Netherlands, and now a point above their opponents, who only have Scotland behind them, who Sophie Howard represented on Tuesday.
The central defender lined up against the Netherlands, as a goal from Esmee Brugts on the hour mark, was enough to settle the scoreline at Hampden Park. Scotland remain on one point in the UEFA Women's Nations League qualification group stage.
Another home nation with City players involved was Wales, who Josie Green started for in a 2-1 loss to Denmark. Jessica Fishlock scored a consolation goal before Green's withdrawal in the 88th minute - the Dragons remain at the foot of League A Group 3.
Finland were also in Nations League action, as they continued their 100 per cent record in League B Group 2, with a 2-0 win against Croatia following an early brace from Tottenham Hotspur's Eveliina Summanen; Jutta Rantala came on as a second-half substitute at Stadion Subicevac.
Lining up for Scotland.
Across the Atlantic, Canadian forward Rose, who joined the Club this year from Reading, was a late substitute in both games against Brazil, and scored in the second fixture against the South American side with a last-minute strike to confirm victory. The pacey forward ran onto a through ball and finished low under 'keeper Lelê.
The final Leicester player in action was winger Ava Baker who featured in a third consecutive game for the England Under-19s, most recently when they beat Czech Republic in a UEFA European’s Women’s Under-19 Championship qualifier. Baker played an hour in the contest and was replaced just after the only goal of the game from Maddy Earl.
