INTERNATIONALS: LUFC WEEKEND ROUND-UP
A look at the Leeds United players representing their countries over the weekend…

It was a productive weekend for the United players away on international duty, with Chris Wood, Stuart Dallas and Lewis Cook all helping their countries to victory.

Wood captained New Zealand on Thursday and fired them to victory by netting the only goal in their 1-0 friendly win in Oman.

The striker told nzfootball.co.nz : “We started off very well and it was nice to come out of the blocks firing quickly.

“We had a few opportunities down the left and Henry (Cameron) was looking very sharp which was really good.

“We got the ball in behind and it was nice to get off to a flying start with a quick goal which I’m sure gave all the boys confidence and we kicked on from that.”

Dallas, meanwhile, played 69 minutes as a left wing-back in Northern Ireland’s 1-0 win over Latvia on Friday night.

Asked by the Belfast Telegraph about playing in an unfamiliar role, Dallas said: “It’s was different for me playing wing-back. But I had Jonny Evans in behind me. He has played at the highest level and he was keeping me right.

“There was a lot more running involved, but I’m just happy to play where the manager wants me.”

Elsewhere, Cook was an unused substitute for England U19s in Thursday’s 2-2 draw with the Netherlands, but he returned to their starting line-up for Sunday’s 5-1 thrashing of Japan.

The midfielder completed 62 minutes at Manchester City’s Academy Stadium and assisted Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham with a deft flick for the Young Lions’ third goal.

There was also a Republic of Ireland Under-19s brace for young striker Frank Mulhern in Sunday evening’s 3-0 win over Latvia, while Charlie Horton played 45 minutes of the USA U23s’ narrow friendly loss to Brazil.
