After a busy Thursday on the international stage where Australian defender Harry Souttar found the net, Zambian striker Daka became the second Fox to score during the international break, netting two in a 4-2 victory over Congo, while Vestergaard featured in Denmark's narrow 2-1 win over Slovenia.

City's No.20 was named in the Zambia line-up to take on Congo at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in a FIFA World Cup African Qualifier, and etched himself onto the scoresheet in the fifth and 92nd minute to kickstart life for the Copper Bullets in Group E with three points. 

Lameck Banda and Fashion Sakala scored the other goals for Zambia, who now prepare for a second World Cup qualifying match against Niger on Tuesday evening at Stade de Marrakech.

The second City player to feature for their country on Friday was defender Vestergaard, who started and played 90 minutes for Denmark in their UEFA EURO Qualification match against Slovenia.

With City team-mate Mads Hermansen an unused substitute in the game, the former Southampton defender assisted Thomas Delaney's winning goal as Joakim Mæhle's first-half strike was cancelled out by Erik Janza.

The win sees Denmark sit at the top of Group H with 22 points from nine games, as they now look towards another qualifying fixture against Northern Ireland on Monday evening at Windsor Park.
