International round-up: Arnautovic’s Austria bested by Wales

Marko Arnautovic and Aaron Ramsey compete for the ball

Saturday once again saw a number of West Ham United internationals in action with two of our first team players on opposing sides in one contest.

That match was between Wales and Austria where Marko Arnautovic started for the visiting side, while James Collins was on the bench for Chris Coleman’s Dragons.

The centre-back was an unused substitute for the home team, and Arnautovic played the full 90 minutes, in a 1-0 win for Wales courtesy of a debut goal by Ben Woodburn.

The result puts Wales three points clear of Austria in third place in World Cup qualifying Group D.

Chicharito was in action with Mexico in the early hours of Saturday morning as El Tri secured their place at next summer’s World Cup thanks to a 1-0 win over Panama.

Javier Hernandez played the full 90 minutes of the victory with Mexico becoming the fifth side to guarantee their place at the 2018 finals in Russia, courtesy of a Hirving Lozano finish.

Cheikhou Kouyate was a very late substitute for Senegal in their 0-0 World Cup qualifying contest with Burkina Faso.

The midfielder was introduced in the 89th minute for his side, replacing Moussa Sow.

The hosts, who had Kalidou Koulibaly sent off in the 84th minute, remain third in their World Cup qualifying group due to the draw.

At U19 level West Ham United’s Anthony Scully got on the scoresheet for the Republic of Ireland as they claimed a 2-1 win against the Czech Republic.

Hammers youngster Conor Conventry was also in the squad for the friendly contest at Waterford.

Finally, Rihards Matrevics’s Latvia U19s side bested Greece 2-1 in a friendly fixture on Saturday afternoon in Agrinio thanks to two goals in the second period.
