The Toon teenager represented England's under-16s at the 50th Mondial Montagiu Tournament in France - a competition in which the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Thierry Henry and Kylian Mbappé played as youngsters - and helped the Young Lions to win the trophy.

He then played the opening 71 minutes of his country's 5-0 thumping of Azerbaijan on Monday night and set up Sweden's second goal which was converted, unintentionally, by the visitors' defender Bahlul Mustafazada.

Martin Dúbravka

Goalkeeper Dúbravka, who returned to St. James' Park in January following his loan spell at Manchester United, was part of the Slovakia squad for their EURO 2024 qualifiers with Luxembourg and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The 34-year-old, who has made one substitute appearance for the Magpies so far this term, now has 34 caps for his country.

Nick Pope and Kieran Trippier

Goalkeeper Pope and full back Trippier have been in fine form for United this term, and - along with Callum Wilson - were part of England's 2022 World Cup squad just four months ago.

The duo had been selected by Gareth Southgate for their EURO 2024 qualifiers against Italy and Ukraine this month but Pope withdrew from the Three Lions' squad due to injury.

Trippier, however, helped his country kick off their qualifying campaign with a win over Italy in Naples on Thursday night. England were leading 2-1 when Luke Shaw was sent off ten minutes from time for a second bookable offence, and Trippier replaced Phil Foden in the 81st minute as Southgate's men saw the game out.

He was then an unused substitute as England beat Ukraine 2-0 on Sunday.

Garang Kuol

The Magpies forward, who is currently on loan at Scottish Premiership side Hearts, was part of Australia's squad for their 'Welcome Home' series of fixtures against Ecuador in Sydney and Melbourne.

The teenager was one of 20 players included in the squad by Graham Arnold who represented the Socceroos at the 2022 World Cup, with the two friendlies marking their first return to the country since that tournament.

The 23-year-old, however, was forced to withdraw from Holland's training camp on Thursday after suffering from a virus infection along with a number of international team-mates.

Republic of Ireland warmed up for next week's Euro 2024 qualifier against France with a 3-2 friendly victory against Latvia.

Goals from Callum O'Dowda and Evan Ferguson, the Brighton & Hove Albion forward's first senior international goal, gave Stephen Kenny's side a two-goal advantage before strikes from Roberts Uldrikis and Artūrs Zjuzins drew the visitors level in Dublin.

Chiedozie Ogbene regained the lead for the Boys in Green shortly after the hour mark before Hendrick was introduced from the substitutes' bench in the latter stages, replacing Stoke City loanee Will Smallbone.

England Under-17s got their 2023 European Under-17 Championship Elite Round qualifying campaign off to a flying start with a 3-1 win against their Denmark counterparts, with 16-year-old midfielder Miley playing the full 90 minutes.

Ethan Nwaneri's first-half brace gave the Young Lions a commanding lead before Justin Oboavwoduo extended the advantage further for Ryan Garry's side, with Amin Chiakha's strike proving a mere consolation.

England's youngsters then beat their Northern Ireland counterparts 2-0, with Miley again playing the full game ahead of their final match against the Netherlands. The Young Lions will gain automatic qualification into the competition's finals should they seal top spot in Group 3.

Emerson, who primarily plays on the left wing, was called up for Scotland's Under-18 squad for two friendly fixtures against Wales.

The 17-year-old forward has been in impressive form at club level, netting eight goals in 13 Under-18 Premier League matches for the Toon teenagers so far this season and has scored five times in his last five league matches.
