There were three Rovers players away with a trio of different countries, with mixed results.

Skipper Charlie Mulgrew appeared for 68 minutes for Scotland in a defeat to Belgium at Hampden Park on Friday night.

A first half goal from Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku scored midway through the first half to give Belgium the advantage at the break.

Robert Martinez's side upped the gears in the second half and three goals in the opening 15 minutes of the second half from Eden Hazard and a brace from Michy Batshuayi sealed an emphatic victory in the international friendly in Glasgow.

Alex McLeish's side face off against Albania at Hampden Park on Monday night as they aim to get their campaign off to the perfect start in their quest to secure a play-off spot for UEFA Euro 2020.

For England, Rovers new boy Ben Brereton was an unused substitute as the Under-20s earned a 2-0 victory against Switzerland at St Georges Park.

Ben will now head to the Netherlands with the rest of the England squad to take on their Dutch counterparts at the home of KVV Quick Boys. The game will take place on Monday September 10th, kick-off 7pm.

Corry Evans was an unused substitute as Northern Ireland suffered a narrow 2-1 defeat to Bosnia in Belfast in Group B3.

Evans will hope to play a part in his country's friendly against Israel on Tuesday night.
