International action round-up

27th March 2017

Gylfi Sigurdsson scored and set up the other goal in Iceland's 2-1 win in Kosovo during World Cup qualification.
The Swans midfielder played a pivotal part in Iceland's opener, with his shot being parried to Bjorn Sigurdarson, and he slotted home from close range.
Sigurdsson then doubled the visitors' lead when he converted from the penalty spot to score his 15th goal for his country.
Iceland moved up to second in Group I - three points behind leaders Croatia - after Ukraine suffered a 1-0 loss.
Sigurdsson is back in action on Tuesday night as Iceland face Ireland in a friendly in Dublin.


Good win last nights vs Kosovo, also happy to get my 15th goal for Iceland ??

Lukasz Fabianski helped Poland extend their lead at the top of Group E to six points thanks to a 2-1 win over Montenegro.
Poland had led 1-0 at the break before Montenegro levelled just past the hour mark, but the visitors claimed victory with eight minutes remaining.
Ki Sung-Yueng captained South Korea during their disappointing 1-0 defeat at China in Asia's qualification round.
The midfielder played the full 90 minutes as South Korea fell four points behind leaders Iran in Group A.
South Korea will look to make amends for that setback when they host bottom side Syria on Tuesday.



Jefferson Montero
featured late on in Ecuador's 2-1 defeat at Paraguay.
The winger came off the bench in the 87th minute of his nation's defeat, which leaves them fifth in South American qualifying.
They could up to fourth, however, if they beat Colombia on Tuesday.
At under-21 level, Alfie Mawson made his second appearance in England's 1-0 defeat at Germany.
Mawson played the full game in the friendly defeat, while he hopes to feature again in tonight's friendly in Denmark.
Oli McBurnie, fresh from featuring for Swans U23s on Saturday, is part of the Scotland U21 squad which hosts Estonia on Tuesday.
Kristoffer Nordfeldt, meanwhile, was an unused substitute during Sweden's 4-0 win over Belarus.
