- Leicester City were well represented in international action on Monday
- Portugal duo Adrien Silva and Ricardo Pereira lined-up against Tunisia's Yohan Benalouane
- The two FIFA World Cup hopefuls played out an entertaining 2-2 draw in Braga
- Kelechi Iheanacho and Ahmed Musa represented Nigeria in a 1-1 draw with DR Congo
- Andy King featured for Wales against Mexico, while George Thomas made his senior debut
Also in action at Estádio Municipal de Braga was City defender Yohan Benaloune, who completed 90 minutes, as the two World Cup hopefuls played out an entertaining friendly fixture.
Portugal led through goals from AC Milan's André Silva and João Mário, but Anice Badri narrowed the arrears before the break and Fakhreddine Ben Youssef completed a fine Tunisia fightback.
City's Silva, 29, featured for just over an hour for the European champions while 24-year-old Pereira was later substituted in the 72nd minute as Fernando Santos evaluates his squad.
Benalouane, meanwhile, continues to impress for Tunisia after making his international debut earlier this year, and could come up against England in Group G in Russia this summer.
Nigeria, who have been drawn in Group D alongside Argentina, Iceland and Croatia, took the lead as Iheanacho played in William Troost-Ekong, but Ben Malango levelled from the spot for Congo.

While Wales will not be in Russia, the fixture, staged at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, was nonetheless an opportunity for both Foxes stars to add to their international portfolios.
King, 29, spent the final five months of the 2017/18 season on loan with Swansea City, where he scored two goals in 11 matches for the south Wales outfit.
Thomas, on the other hand, has previously represented his country at various youth levels, notably making six appearances for the Under-21s over the past 12 months.
However, manager Ryan Giggs elected to promote him to the senior squad in the United States this week, a reward for his stellar performances for the Club’s Development Squad.
