International Round-Up: November 2023

Find out how Pompey's players fared for their countries

22 November 2023

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

Kusini Yengi
The striker made his Australia debut from the bench in Australia's World Cup qualifier against Bangladesh in Melbourne.

They were already 6-0 up when he replaced Brandon Borrello on 72 minutes and went on to secure a comprehensive 7-0 victory.

Yengi then remained on the bench for the Socceroos as they beat Palestine 1-0 in Kuwait a few days later.

Terry Devlin
The midfielder received a first call-up to the Northern Ireland senior squad to replace injured Pompey team-mate Paddy Lane.

But the 20-year-old remained on the bench for Michael O'Neill's side in their 4-0 Euro 2024 qualifying defeat in Finland.

Devlin was then released to the under-21s and started their 3-0 loss to England at Goodison Park.

Haji Mnoga
The defender – who is currently on loan at Aldershot – won a couple more cups for Tanzania as they began their World Cup qualifying campaign.

The Taifa Stars won 1-0 in Niger, but followed that up with a 2-0 defeat at home to Morocco.

Joe Morrell
The midfielder stayed on the bench for Wales as they played out 1-1 draws with Armenia and Turkey.

Those results saw Rob Page's side miss out on automatic qualification for next summer's European Championship in Germany.

But they will have a second chance via the play-offs, with a home semi-final against either Finland, Iceland or Ukraine.

Sam Folarin
The academy striker made his first two appearances for Republic of Ireland U21s, featuring in a couple of friendlies against Belgium.

He came off the bench in a 2-1 victory in the opening game before starting a 4-0 defeat in the second.
