Robins on international duty

Five City players have been in action over the September international break.

Callum O'Dowda (Republic of Ireland), Pedro Pereira (Portugal Under-21s), Joe Morrell (Wales), Han-Noah Massengo (France Under-19s) and Ádám Nagy (Hungary) have all been called up for their respective countries.

City Academy graduate Morrell, currently on loan at Lincoln City, has made his Wales debut under Ryan Giggs in a friendly against Belarus.

Callum O'Dowda

Callum O'Dowda was an unused substitute on Thursday night as the Republic of Ireland continued their unbeaten start to the UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers (September 5th).

Mick McCarthy's side recovered well against group favourites Switzerland at the Aviva Stadium as David McGoldrick netted his first goal for his country to cancel out the efforts of Fabian Schar.

The Republic top Group D by three points and with their qualification hopes very much on track, they now prepare for a qualifier against Georgia in October.

Next up for the McCarthy's side however, was a friendly with Bulgaria on Tuesday night in Dublin (September 10th).

O'Dowda completed 76 minutes in the 3-1 win, with Alan Browne, Kevin Long and James Collins each scoring their first international goal for Republic of Ireland.

Pedro Pereira

Pedro Pereira was introduced in the 74th minute as Portugal comfortably got their Under-21 European Championship qualification off to a winning start with a 4-0 win against Gibraltar (Thursday).

Francisco Trincão broke the deadlock, Dany Mota netted a brace before Diogo Queirós wrapped up the one-sided content.

Pereira was then an unused substitute in Belarus on Tuesday evening (September 10th) as Portugal secured back to back qualifying wins with a 2-0 victory.

Joe Morrell

The midfielder was an unused substitute in Wales' 2-1 win against Azerbaijan on Friday (September 6th). A misunderstanding between Pavel Pashayev and his goalkeeper led to an own goal to gift Wales the lead before an Azerbaijan equaliser through Mahir Emreli. But Real Madrid star Gareth Bale rose to head in a late winner via the underside of the crossbar. The win keeps alive their hopes of automatic qualification in their UEFA EURO 2020 group.

But Morrell was handed his full Wales debut on Monday (September 9th) in a 1-0 win agains Belarus. A proud moment for Morrell, the young midfielder played a big hand in the decisive goal by breaking up the play. He fed Jonny Williams who burst forward before finding Dan James to his left who picked out the far corner with a placed shot.

Ädäm Nagy

Ádám Nagy didn't feature in Hungary's 2-1 friendly defeat to Montenegro, though he completed 65 minutes in a home tie to Slovakia in the UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier on Monday night. Hungary again fell to a 2-1 defeat.

Han-Noah Massengo

France Under-19s beat Slovenia Under-19s 1-0 in their first of three friendlies. They then drew 1-1 with Croatia U19 and 3-3 with Russia U19.
