A number of West Ham United players have been involved in international action for their countries this week.

Razvan Rat had a successful Friday, starting at left back as Romania recorded an important 3-0 win over Hungary in Group D of the European qualifying tournament for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Romania are now in second place two points clear of Hungary, and three ahead of Turkey, who they play at home on Tuesday.

Jack Collison also started for Wales in World Cup qualifying, although his evening was less successful as Chris Coleman's side came up short in Macedonia.

Wales had done well to battle back from 1-0 down to level through Aaron Ramsey, but Aleksandar Trajkovski's winner ten minutes from time left the visitors with nothing.

Winston Reid, meanwhile, started for New Zealand as they beat Saudi Arabia 1-0 to reach the final of the OSN tournament against United Arab Emirates on Monday.

There was success for Mohamed Diame, too, as he played the 90 minutes for Senegal, whose 1-0 win over Uganda sealed top spot in Group J of African World Cup qualifying.

They will now progress to the final round as they edge closer to a berth in Brazil.

Below senior level, Leo Chambers scored for England U19s as they won 6-1 away at Estonia, while Raphael Spiegel helped Switzerland U21s get their Euro 2015 qualification off to the perfect start as they defeated Latvia 2-0.
