Oli Norwood- After qualifying for Euro 2016, Northern Ireland faced Latvia in a game they dominated and ran out 1-0 winners where Norwood played 45 minutes before being substituted for Corry Evans.

Ali Al-Habsi- The Oman captain played the full 90 minutes in a 1-0 friendly defeat to New Zealand. Their focus now turns to the World Cup qualifier against Turkmenistan on Tuesday.

Chris Gunter- The full back played 66 minutes against Holland before being substituted for Adam Henley. Wales lost the game 3-2 with Arjen Robben scoring a brace and Bas Dost with the other goal. Joe Allen and Emyr Huws were on the scoresheet for the Welsh.

Paul McShane- The Irish international wasn't deemed fit enough for the first leg of their Euro play off game against Bosnia where they drew 1-1 and will look to finish the job in the second leg this week.

Sean Long and Shane Griffin- Long who is currently on loan at Luton and Griffin who features for the Under 21's side both played the full 90 minutes in a surprise 3-1 defeat to Lithuania Under 21's which sees them lose their place at the top of the qualifying group on a frustrating afternoon for the Irish.

Michael Hector and Garath McCleary- The Jamaican pair suffered a disappointing 2-0 defeat at home to Panama. Hector played the full 90 minutes while McCleary was substituted after 70 minutes of the game. They now look forward to a trip to Haiti on Tuesday evening where they will look for a vital three points.

Paulo Hurtado- The Peru winger was an 83rd minute substitute in World Cup qualifying when he came on for Claudio Pizzaro in a crucial 1-0 win over Paraguay to give Peru their first win of the campaign.

That concludes part 1 of the international round up and I'll be back with part 2 after the next set of games on Tuesday.
