INTERNATIONALS: Two Blues could be action this evening

Two Manchester City players could be in action on Thursday evening as the international calendar gets into full swing.

Bernardo Silva is in the Portugal squad preparing to face Poland at the Silesian Stadium.

Portugal are looking to make it two wins from two in League A: Group 3 of the inaugural UEFA Nations League having beaten Italy in their opening match.

Kick-off in that one is at 19:45 and viewers in the UK can watch live coverage via the Sky Sports red button.

And Nicolas Otamendi could feature for Argentina as they face Iraq in a friendly.

Interim coach Lionel Scaloni has picked an experimental squad, with the likes of Sergio Aguero, Gonzalo Higuain and Angel Di Maria and all left out as he looks beyond the established stars for answers to Argentina’s current problems.

On Wednesday, Oleksandr Zinchenko played the full 90 minutes as Ukraine drew 1-1 with Italy at Sampdoria's Stadio Luigi Ferraris.

The game saw the 43 victims of the bridge collapse in Genoa honoured on an emotional night.

In August, a section of the Morandi motorway collapsed, killing 43 people and injuring more than a dozen.

The match was paused in the 43rd minute as players, staff and supporters applauded in memory of those who died.
