Internationals in action

Modibo Maiga's CAF Africa Cup of Nations are over after Mali were beaten 4-1 in their semi-final with Nigeria on Wednesday.

The West Ham United forward missed his country's opening two Group B fixtures through injury before returning to the starting XI for the vital 1-1 draw with DR Congo that took Mali through to the quarter-finals. Maiga kept his place for the last-eight clash with host nation South Africa in Durban on Saturday, playing the full 120 minutes as the match ended 1-1 after extra-time. Mali triumphed 3-1 in the penalty shoot-out to take their place in Wednesday's semi-final.

However, Maiga enjoyed a disappointing 45 minutes in Durban, during which Nigeria took a 3-0 lead and the forward was booked before being replaced at half-time. Mali will now contest a third/fourth-place play-off on Saturday evening against either Burkina Faso or Ghana.

Elsewhere, Hammers duo Jack Collison and Emmanuel Pogatetz faced one another in Wales's 2-1 victory over Austria at Swansea City's Liberty Stadium on Wednesday, while goalkeeper Stephen Henderson was not involved  in Republic of Ireland's 2-0 home win over Poland in Dublin.

A number of West Ham players were in action on Tuesday.

Mohamed Diame captained Senegal in a 1-1 friendly international draw with Guinea in Paris.

Sean Maguire was a 58th-minute substitute for Republic of Ireland U19s in their 2-1 friendly victory over Czech Republic at Flancare Park in Longford. Club-mate Kieran Sadlier was not involved, but both will hope for playing time when the two nations meet again in Athlone on Thursday.

Blair Turgott played for 58 minutes as England U19s scored a 3-1 friendly victory over Denmark in Doncaster as Noel Blake's side began their countdown to this summer's UEFA European U19 Championship in Lithuania with a win.

Meanwhile, Academy player Marcio Martins is in Portugal's U17 squad for the Algarve International Tournament, also involving England, Germany and the Netherlands, between 8-12 February.

*Paul McCallum appeared as a second-half substitute in AFC Wimbledon's 3-0 npower League Two defeat at leaders Port Vale on Tuesday evening.
