International Break Round-Up

Several City players have been taking part in matches during the international break, and bcfc.co.uk rounds up their involvement.

TAYLOR MOORE

The 19-year-old defender, recently signed from Lens, came on at half-time for England Under-20s as the young Lions suffered a narrow 2-1 defeat to Brazil on Sunday at Kidderminster.

WES BURNS

The striker, currently on loan at Aberdeen, started for Wales Under-21s against Luxembourg, earning his 17th cap. The game ended in a 1-1 draw at Bangor University Stadium.

CALLUM O’DOWDA

After being involved as a substitute in Republic of Ireland’s 4-0 international friendly win over Oman, the City winger, signed from Oxford United in the summer, featured for Ireland Under-21s in their crucial match against Serbia. The 21-year-old was on target for the Boys in Green, heading home Kevin O’Connor’s cross, but was on the losing side as Serbia recorded a 3-2 win.

HORDUR MAGNUSSON

The 23-year-old, who signed from Juventus in the summer, won his sixth cap for Iceland on Monday. The defender came on for his country in the 42nd minute as they drew 1-1 with Ukraine in Kiev.

TAMMY ABRAHAM

Withdrew from the England Under-20s squad with a slight foot injury and was given 11 days off by Lee Johnson.

GUSTAV ENGVALL

The Swedish striker joined up with his new team-mates for the first time on Monday, instead of joining his country's Under-21s, after a recent injury.
