Full international round-up
9th September 2015
This weekend marks the return of the Barclays Premier League after the first international break of the season, with Swansea City heading to Vicarage Road to face Watford.
And it has been a busy fortnight for many of the squad, with no less than 17 players being called up for their respective national squads in what was a historic time for some of our Swans stars.
Ashley Williams and Neil Taylor both played for Wales in their two Euro 2016 qualifiers against Cyprus and Israel, with Chris Coleman's men within touching distance of a place at a major tournament for the first time in 57 years.
A 1-0 win in Cyprus meant that Wales knew victory over Israel would seal their place in France, but they were made to settle for a 0-0 draw ahead of next month's games against Bosnia and Andorra.
Jonjo Shelvey was recalled to the England squad for the games against San Marino and Switzerland after an impressive start to the Premier League season.
Shelvey - who became the first Swans player to represent England - played the full 90 minutes as Roy Hodgson's side cruised to a comfortable 6-0 win in San Marino before featuring for nearly an hour in the 2-0 victory over Switzerland at Wembley on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, it was a historic fortnight for Gylfi Sigurdsson and Iceland as they qualified for their first major tournament.
Sigurdsson scored the winner from the penalty spot as table-topping Iceland beat Holland 1-0 in Amsterdam last Thursday before a 0-0 draw at home to Kazakhstan saw them book their place at Euro 2016.
In an international friendly, Eder played the full 90 minutes as Portugal lost 1-0 at home to France before the striker came off the bench for the final 14 minutes in a narrow 1-0 qualifying victory over Albania three days later.
It means Portugal stay top of Group I as they close in on a place at next summer's European Championships.
Over in Group D, Lukasz Fabianski and Poland suffered their first defeat in qualifying as they went down 3-1 against Germany in Frankfurt.
That result meant Germany leapfrogged Poland into top spot in the group, but Fabianski and co responded well with a thumping 8-1 victory over Gibraltar to stay second ahead of next month's final two games against Scotland and the Republic of Ireland.
Kristoffer Nordfeldt was an unused substitute in both of Sweden's qualifying games as they suffered a setback in their bid to reach Euro 2016.
After a 1-0 defeat away to Russia saw the gap cut to one point between the two sides, Sweden lost 4-1 at home against Austria as they slipped to third in Group G.
Away from Europe, Ki Sung-Yueng captained South Korea as they faced a World Cup qualifying double-header.
An 8-0 victory over Laos in Hwaseong was followed up by a 3-0 win against Lebanon as South Korea went top of their preliminary qualifying section for Russia 2018.
Meanwhile, Andre Ayew captained Ghana to a crucial 1-0 victory over Rwanda in an African Cup of Nations qualifier and Modou Barrow played the full 90 minutes as Gambia lost 1-0 against Cameroon.
On the Under-21 stage, Josh Sheehan and Ryan Hedges both started as Wales Under-21s beat Luxembourg 3-1 to sit top of their qualifying group, while Liam Shephard was an unused substitute.
Gregor Zabret captained Slovenia Under-21s to a 3-0 win over Lithuania as they went top of Group 2 before a narrow 1-0 defeat against Italy.
Finally, Jay Fulton was an unused substitute as Scotland chalked up their first Euro 2017 qualifying win with a 2-1 victory away to Northern Ireland.
