Manchester United had five players with a chance of representing their nations last night, here is how they got on.

As usual when the international break comes around, we pay special attention to Manchester United players who might be in action.

Last night saw five Old Trafford players’ countries in action, on a night Erik ten Hag was surely paying close attention.

So how did the five do? Here is our round-up of all the international action from Thursday night…

Colombia v Uruguay - FIFA World Cup 2026 Qualifier

Facundo Pellistri started for Uruguay as they took on Colombia, however it wasn’t a happy evening for the 21-year-old.

Substituted off at half-time after making just 14 touches and with his nation 1-0 down it was a night to forget.

We hope the substitution wasn’t injury related, which seems unlikely as his performance probably warranted being taken off. Especially considering they came back to get a draw.


Scott McTominay – Scotland

Scott McTominay featured for Scotland in a 2-0 defeat to Spain last night which ended Scotland’s 100% record in qualification.

McTominay scored a pretty special goal which was later disallowed, but the finishing again was excellent.

Despite losing, Scotland’s confidence will still be high as they have qualification in their own hands.

Andre Onana – Cameroon

Andre Onana is back with his national team following playing style disagreements.

He however was unused last night in Cameroon’s 1-0 defeat to Russia.

The game was only a friendly but should mean he regains the starting berth for the next game.

Victor Lindelof – Sweden

Another unused substitute, Victor Lindelof remained on the bench during Sweden’s 3-1 win over 10-man Moldova.

This move probably in caution due to a potential knock picked up v Brentford last weekend.

Just a friendly but the ice man should return soon for Sweden.

Altay Bayindir – Turkey

Number five, Altay Bayindir was yet again, another unused substitute on what was a poor night for United players.

Bayindir watched on as his Turkey teammates beat Croatia 1-0.

The win moved Turkey three points clear at the top of the group.
