The international break couldn’t have come at a better time for Everton and Marco Silva. But did Everton’s internationals also struggle for form? Below we see how they got on.
Senior Team – Euro 2020 Qualifying: 1-2 vs Czech Republic, 6-0 vs Bulgaria
After storming through qualifying so far, the Three Lions hit their first speed bump as they lost 2-1 to in Prague, with both Jordan Pickford and Michael Keane starting. Pickford pulled off some eye-catching saves, but Keane was criticised once again for his performance after slipping at an inopportune moment from a corner which led to Czech Republic equalising.
Keane was then replaced by Tyrone Mings for the controversial 6-0 win in Sofia.
Under-21s – Euro 2021 Qualifying: 5-1 vs Austria
Tom Davies got some much-needed game time as he captained England under-21s to a thumping 5-1 win over Austria at Stadium mk.
Republic of Ireland
Senior Team – Euro 2020 Qualifying: 0-0 vs Georgia, 0-2 vs Switzerland
Seamus Coleman’s hopes of captaining his nation at a major championship took a big blow as Ireland dropped points at Georgia, before he was sent off (for the second time in a fortnight) after conceding a penalty in their 2-0 loss to group rivals, Switzerland. It now means that Ireland need to beat Denmark in Dublin in November to qualify, with Coleman unable to play due to suspension.
Senior Team – Friendly: 1-1 vs Senegal, 1-1 vs Nigeria
Richarlison emerged from the bench twice for Brazil as they faced two African sides, but was unable to lead his side earn a win.
Senior Team – Friendly: 0-0 vs Chile, 0-3 Algeria
Yerry Mina helped his side to a clean sheet against Chile, before watching from the bench as they collapsed to a Riyad Mahrez-inspired Algeria.
Senior Team – Euro 2020 Qualifying: 1-0 vs Iceland, 1-1 vs Turkey
Lucas Digne lined up against Gylfi Sigurdsson for France as they secured a 1-0 win over Iceland, but was left on the bench for their crunch tie against Turkey.
Senior Team – Euro 2020 Qualifying: 0-1 vs France, 2-0 vs Andorra
Sigurdsson played both full games for Iceland as their qualification hopes hang on by a threat, although he missed yet another penalty in their 2-0 win over Andorra.
He’s now missed four of the last seven penalties he’s taken.
Senior Team – Euro 2020 Qualifying: 1-0 vs Albania, 1-1 vs France
He may not be getting a look in at Everton, but Cenk Tosun is a key player for Turkey and scored a crucial 90th minute winner against Albania, before leading the line once again against France.
Senior Team – Friendly: 1-1 vs Brazil
Alex Iwobi started in a central attacking midfield role and impressed in their 1-1 draw against Brazil, before being replaced on 84 minutes. Will he get more chances in a central role given Gylfi’s struggles?
