International Blues Round Up

USA TODAY Sports

A look at Everton players in the latest round of International fixtures, including a double from Romelu Lukaku.

Beginning with England, as Leighton Baines and Phil Jagielka helped England score four second half goals to beat Montenegro at Wembley and move one step closer to qualifying for the World Cup in Brazil. Ross Barkley an unused substitute.

Two other blues off to Brazil are Kevin Mirallas and on loan man of the moment Romelu Lukaku, who scored both Belgian goals in a 2-1 victory over Nikica Jelavic's Croatia; the second of which was particularly powerful. Mirallas came on to replace Kevin De Buryne on the hour. Jelavic was an unused sub for the Croats.

In Cologne, Germany, Seamus Coleman celebrated his 25th Birthday by captaining the Republic of Ireland in a team which included fellow blues James McCarthy and Darron Gibson, who made his first international appearance since prior to Euro 2012. All three played the full game but it was the Germans who won 3-0.

In Kansas City, Tim Howard captained the USA to a 2-0 win over Jamaica.

Bryan Oviedo was an unused substitute as Honduras beat Costa Rica 1-0.

The Republic of Ireland's U21 side was captained by Shane Duffy, on loan at Yeovil, as the Irish drew 0-0 in a European Championship Qualifier in Sligo earlier this week. John Stones helped England U21's to a 4-0 win over San Marino in the same tournament.

Loanee Gerard Deulofeu entered the field on the hour for the Spanish U21's in a 3-2 win against Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Finally, Apostolos Vellios played the closing stages of Greece U21's 1-0 defeat against close rivals Turkey.
