Full international round-up
14th October 2015
This weekend marks the return of the Barclays Premier League after the latest international break, and it has been a historic week for many of the first-team squad.
Ashley Williams and Neil Taylor were both involved for Wales as they booked their place at a major tournament for the first time in 57 years.
Despite a 2-0 defeat against Bosnia & Herzegovina in Zenica, Chris Coleman's side were ensured of qualification after Israel were beaten at home by Cyprus.
It made for a night of celebration in Cardiff as Wales beat Andorra 2-0 to end their qualifying campaign on a high ahead of next summer's European Championships in France.
Jonjo Shelvey was again called up for England, who had already booked their place at Euro 2016 following eight wins out of eight in qualifying.
Shelvey was an unused sub as Roy Hodgson's side continued their perfect record with a 2-0 win over Estonia at Wembley, but the midfielder played the full 90 minutes as England beat Lithuania 3-0 in Vilnius three days later.
Meanwhile, Gylfi Sigurdsson was on target as Iceland drew 2-2 with Latvia as they looked to finish top of Group A.
However, a 1-0 defeat away in Turkey on Tuesday meant that Sigurdsson and his team-mates finished as runners-up to Czech Republic.
It was a similar story for Lukasz Fabianski and Poland, who were involved in a four-way battle for qualification from Group D.
They trailed Scotland at Hampden Park in their penultimate fixture, but a stoppage-time equaliser from top scorer Robert Lewandowski ensured Poland remained second in the group and ended the Scots' hopes of qualification.
That led to a straight shootout on the final round of fixtures as Fabianski and co welcomed third-placed Republic of Ireland to Warsaw - with the winning heading to France next summer.
After both sides traded goals in an even first half, Lewandowski again proved to be the match-winner, scoring the winner late on to condemn the visitors to a place in the play-offs.
Fellow goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt was an unused sub in both of Sweden's qualifying matches against Liechtenstein and Moldova.
Despite back-to-back victories, Sweden had to settle for third place in Group G and a place in next month's play-offs.
Elsewhere, Eder was an unused sub as Portugal beat Denmark 1-0 to confirm their place at Euro 2016, while the striker came off the bench in the victory over Serbia as they finished top of Group I.
Away from Europe, Ki Sung-Yueng captained South Korea to a 1-0 win over Kuwait in a World Cup qualifier before he scored from the penalty spot in a 3-0 friendly victory over Jamaica in Seoul.
Meanwhile, Jefferson Montero played 77 minutes as Ecuador beat a strong Argentina side 2-0 in their World Cup qualifier in Buenos Aires.
And Montero was involved once more on Tuesday as Ecuador secured a 2-0 win over Bolivia to maintain their 100% start to qualifying for Russia 2018.
Matt Grimes was included in the England Under-20 squad for the Mercedes Elite Cup in Germany, with the midfielder playing the full 90 minutes as England opened up with 3-1 win over Holland.
Grimes then featured as a second-half substitute in the 2-1 victory again Turkey before the former Exeter man captained the Under-20s in a 1-0 defeat to Germany in their final fixture.
Elsewhere, Josh Sheehan and Ryan Hedges both played 90 minutes for Wales Under-21s as they maintained their unbeaten start to qualifying with a 0-0 draw against Denmark, while defender Liam Shephard was amongst the substitutes.
Stephen Kingsley - who is currently on loan with Crewe - played 90 minutes as Scotland Under-21s lost 2-1 against France, while Jay Fulton was an unused substitute.
However, Fulton and Kingsley both featured in the Scots' 0-0 draw against Iceland to keep them in the hunt for qualification from Group 3.
