Many Hull City players have taken to various pitches for their countries in the first games of the recent international break.

Allan McGregor (currently on loan at Cardiff City) played the full 90 minutes of Scotland’s 1-1 friendly draw with Canada, while Andrew Robertson was a half-time substitute, playing in the second half after replacing Lee Wallace.

Both remain in the squad for Scotland’s World Cup qualifier against Slovakia, while David Marshall has withdrawn from the squad after sitting on the bench for its draw.

Lazar Markovic was left on the bench as Serbia beat Georgia 3-1 in its latest World Cup qualifier. The result leaves the side in first place in Group D of the European Qualifiers.

It is now ahead of the Republic of Ireland, for which David Meyler played 80 minutes against Wales in a 0-0 draw before being replaced by Aiden McGeady. He was originally set to sit on the bench before James McCarthy picked up an injury in the warm-up.

The country is now level on points with Serbia, with a worse goal difference (+4 compared to +6).

Striker Abel Hernandez played just 13 minutes of Uruguay’s 4-1 defeat against Brazil, coming on after 77 minutes to replace Carlos Sanchez. Brazil’s win leaves his country in second place in the South American standings, seven points behind the side (23 points compared to 30).

Alfred N’Diaye was also left on Senegal’s bench as they drew 1-1 with Nigeria in a friendly, while Josh Tymon played for England U18s in its 2-0 win over Saudi Arabia before being an unused substitute in its 2-1 win over Qatar.
