Barely three days after the Premier League’s craziest day, a host of Sunday’s stars were involved in international assignment on Wednesday night – and success was very much recorded. With a cluster of friendlies across Europe, more than 35 players from the English top-flight were involved for their countries, with world champions France the shining light in a thrashing of Ukraine in Paris the way the later won’t forget in a hurry.
Although, with 15 Premier League players involved in Portugal’s contest against Spain, Virgil van Dijk captaining Holland versus Mexico and a Chelsea outcast starting for Germany, there are opportunities for some which are not available for their clubs as the international break got going.
Playing the captain role to his country with no Robert Lewandowski present, Grosicki has scored four goals already in the 2020-21 campaign – all at international level. But he is yet to play in the Premier League this term, and in all, it was fun for the International football stats as they reunited once more.
