Romelu Lukaku came on as a half-time substitute for Christian Benteke in Belgium’s 2-1 win over Slovakia.

Shane Long played 62 minutes for the Republic of Ireland and his Artur Boruc's save from his shot set up Ciaran Clark's opener in a 2-0 win over Poland in Dublin.

James Morrison featured as a 62nd-minute substitute for Scotland as they beat Estonia 1-0 in Gordon Strachan’s first game in charge at Aberdeen's Pettodrie stadium.

Gareth McAuley and Chris Brunt both played the full game as Northern Ireland fought out a goalless draw with Malta.
