International Round-Up – Part One

Find out how our lads are faring on international duty

11 October 2019

With several of the Millwall squad away on international duty, millwallfc.co.uk take a look at the Lions lads' progress with their nations.

Shane Ferguson played the full 90 minutes for Michael O'Neill's Northern Ireland side on Thursday night, as they came agonisingly close to a result in Rotterdam against the Netherlands in their UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying campaign. Hull City's Josh Magennis gave the visitors a shock lead on 75 minutes, before a quick equaliser from Memphis Depay. Luuk De Jong completed the Dutch comeback a minute into added time, before Depay sealed a 3-1 win for Ronald Koeman's side. Shane and Northern Ireland sit third in Group C, level on points with the Netherlands and Germany having played a game more.

Jayson Molumby captained the Republic of Ireland Under 21 side as they remained unbeaten in Group 1 of qualifying for the UEFA U21 Championships, following Thursday's impressive goalless draw against an Italy side featuring Premier League starlets Moise Kean and Patrick Cutrone. Jayson skippered his nation in Dublin for 85 minutes as they ground out the stalemate, keeping the Irish youngsters top of the group - albeit having played more games than their fellow competitors. They next face Iceland U21s, with Jayson and on-loan Newport County man Danny McNamara among the squad.

Jon Dadi Bodvarsson's Iceland resume their Euro 2020 qualifiers in Group H on Friday evening, with a challenging fixture on home turf against France - who sit alongside Turkey in the top two with a three-point gap to Erik Hamren's Icelandic side. Following the weekend, Monday night's next round of fixtures also prove crucial for Jon and Iceland as they host rock-bottom Andorra, as France and Turkey face off in Paris.
