We take a look at how Pompey players fared during the recent round of international fixtures.

Joe Morrell
The midfielder started the first couple of games for Wales in their Group A4 Nations League campaign.

He played the entirety of a 2-1 defeat in Poland, but went off after 59 minutes in a home loss to Netherlands by the same scoreline.

Morrell suffered a broken toe in that latter contest, forcing him to miss a clash with Belgium and the return fixture with the Dutch.

He had earlier been an unused substitute as Wales enjoyed a narrow play-off victory over Ukraine to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1958.

Haji Mnoga
The young defender was taken off with a hamstring problem during the first half of Tanzania’s 1-1 draw with Niger.

It is not thought to be a serious issue, but it did keep him out of their second Africa Cup of Nations qualifier, which was a 2-0 defeat to Algeria.

Harry Jewitt-White
The teenage midfielder was part of the Wales under-18 squad that competed in a tournament in Zagreb.

He started a 4-2 win over Croatia and later posed for a photo with former Fratton favourite Niko Kranjcar, who was coaching the host nation.

Jewitt-White also appeared as a second half substitute in defeats to England – who won the tournament – and Austria.

Alfie Bridgman
The first year professional showed his versatility for Malta under-19s in a couple of friendly defeats against Northern Ireland.

He started both games, being used in an attacking role on the right in the first and a left-sided wing-back in the second.
