International action for three Baggies

JAMES McClean, Jake Livermore and Nacer Chadli all featured for their nations on Tuesday night.

There was disappointment for McClean’s Republic of Ireland who missed out on a place at next summer’s FIFA World Cup in Russia.

They suffered a heavy 5-1 defeat to Denmark in Dublin despite taking an early lead through Shane Duffy.

Christian Eriksen scored three sublime goals for the Danes in between a Cyrus Christie own goal and a Nicklas Bendtner penalty.

Elsewhere, Jake Livermore completed 90 minutes at Wembley for England against Brazil before being replaced by Danny Rose.

The Albion midfielder helped the Three Lions to a creditable goalless draw against Neymar and co, who will head to Russia as favourites to lift the World Cup.

Finally, Nacer Chadli’s mazy run and pinpoint cross provided the assist for Romelu Lukaku to head home the only goal of the game as Belgium beat Japan in a friendly.

Chadli completed 84 minutes in Bruges in a game which saw former Baggies forward Lukaku become the nation’s all-time top scorer, notching his 31st goal to overtake Bernard Voorhoof who scored 30 times for the Red Devils between 1928 and 1940.
