International round-up: Trio set for action

Lynden Gooch – Cuba 0-2 USA

After a tense opening period, the American’s took control of the game as Chris Wondolowski’s came to the floor.

The San Jose Earthquakes striker broke the deadlock in the 62nd minute and then turned provider shortly after as Julian Green slotted home to seal victory.

Jason Denayer – Montenegro U21 3-0 Belgium U21

Jason Denayer went off after just 33 minutes as Belgium slipped to a 3-0 defeat in their latest UEFA European qualifier.

Vladimir Jovovi put the hosts in front on 17 minutes before Aleksandar Boljevi scored a brace to seal a resounding victory for Montenegro.

Who could play tonight?

Lamine Kone – Ivory Coast v Mali

Lamine Kone is in line to feature as Ivory Coast begin their 2018 World Cup qualifiers at home to Mali.
