International roundup: Zinchenko bags late winner
A host of international matches took place this evening. Here's how our players fared...

Oleksandr Zinchenko scored a 90th-minute winner to give Ukraine a winning start to their UEFA Nations League campaign as they beat the Czech Republic 2-1. 

The 21-year-old came on with 66 minutes on the clock and delivered a crucial strike to move his side top of League B: Group 1. 

Ilkay Gundogan played the final 25 minutes of Germany’s 0-0 draw against France in the UEFA Nations League A Group 1.

Leroy Sane also played, coming on for the final 10 minutes, while Benjamin Mendy was an unused sub for World Cup winners France.

And Bernardo Silva played the first half of Portugal’s 1-1 draw with Croatia in a friendly match played at Estadio Algarve.

Tomorrow could see Vincent Kompany in action as Belgium take on Scotland in a friendly at Hampden Park. That game kicks off at 7.45pm.
