A NUMBER of Rangers players have been in action over the last few days in a variety of international matches. Here’s our review on how those away from the club have got on so far…
EURO 2020 Qualifying
Northern Ireland: Steven Davis, Jordan Jones, Kyle Lafferty, Gareth McAuley
It was a successful few days for the Northern Ireland squad as away wins against Estonia and Belarus kept up their 100 per cent record in the Euro 2020 qualifying group stages.
Steven Davis played 90 minutes in both matches, with new signing Jordan Jones coming on as a substitute to play 25 minutes against Estonia in the 2-1 victory.
Jones’ substitute performance earned him a place in the starting 11 for last night’s game in Belarus. Kyle Lafferty came on as a substitute and played the final 20 minutes in the 1-0 win. Defender Gareth McAuley was an unused sub for both fixtures.
Finland: Glen Kamara
Glen Kamara was key in the middle of the park for Finland as they also won both of their qualifying games.
The Rangers man provided the assist for the opening goal in a 2-0 victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina before playing his part over the 90 minutes in a 2-0 win away to Liechtenstein.
