International round-up: Successful night for Hammers in Euro qualifiers

Marko Arnautovic gets a shot away against Slovenia

West Ham United's internationals enjoyed a successful evening in UEFA Euro 2020 qualification, with Marko Arnautovic and Lukasz Fabianski both claiming victories for Austria and Poland on Friday.

Arnautovic played the 90 minutes in Austria's 1-0 win against Slovenia in Klagenfurt.

It looked for a while as if it was going to be a frustrating evening for the hosts, until Guido Burgstaller scored the only goal of the game 16 minutes from time.

The three points were much needed too, after Arnautovic's side suffered defeats in their opening two qualifiers in March.

They remain six points behind Group G leaders Poland, for whom Lukasz Fabianski kept a clean sheet in their 1-0 win in North Macedonia.

Fabianski now has 49 caps for his country and could bring up the half-century when they take on Israel on Monday.

Meanwhile, Josh Cullen was an unused substitute for the Republic of Ireland as they claimed a useful 1-1 draw away at Denmark.
