Full house for Albion quartet

11 October 2017

NACER Chadli and Oliver Burke both staked their claims for inclusion in Albion's plans for Monday's return to Premier League action at Leicester.

Each completed 90 minutes, with Oliver scoring Scotland U21s’ first goal as they bounced back from last week’s Auld Enemy defeat with a 2-0 win over Latvia U21s.

The Albion winger captained The Scots, who moved up to second in their European Under 21 Championships Qualifying group.

And Nacer played as a brace from Eden Hazard, as well as goals from Thorgan Hazard and Romelu Lukaku, ensured the already-qualified Belgium comfortably beat Cyprus 4-0.

The result means that The Red Devils finished unbeaten on 28 points from 10 games in European World Cup Qualifying Group H.

Elsewhere Salomon Rondon played the full game as Venezuela ended their South American World Cup Qualification campaign on a high with a 1-0 win over Paraguay.

Yangel Herrera’s 84th minute goal sealed the three points, however Venezuela won’t be heading to Russia next summer as they finished 10th in the group. 

And Sam Field played the final quarter of an hour for England U20s as they beat Czech Republic 4-0 at St George’s Park.

Two Stephy Mavididi goals and strikes from Darnell Johnson and Harvey Barnes completed a good international break for the team following last week’s 5-1 win in Italy.
