International round-up | Swansea City players on international duty

15th June
First team
Michael Obafemi - in green Ireland home kit - about to strike a ball right footed

Michael Obafemi put in man of the match performance on his first start for Ireland while Swansea City youngsters also featured for Wales youth age groups.

Obafemi was the stand out player as Ireland put in an impressive performance to overcome Scotland 3-0 in their third Nations League outing. The striker set up one with a delightful chipped assist into the feet of Troy Parrott before rounding off an excellent evening in green with a stunning effort from 25 yards – his first career goal outside the box. He was withdrawn just before the hour-mark after picking up a knock and that injury also kept him out of Ireland's final match. 

Obafemi also played his part in earlier games coming off the bench in defeats to Armenia and Ukraine. 

At youth international level, Cameron Congreve was the star man in Wales Under-18s' opening match in a mini tournament hosted in Croatia.

He scored two free kicks and was unlucky when an effort hit the post as he helped the side to a 4-2 victory over the hosts. Congreve also played in the second match - a 2-0 defeat to England. Despite the result, it was a proud moment for fellow Swans academy youngster Joel Cotterill who captained his country for that game.

Cotterill retained his place for the final match and was joined by Ben Lloyd and Kai Ludvigson, but the young side came up against a very strong Austrian side and suffered a heavy defeat.

Lewis Webb featured for Wales in their final Euro Under-21 qualifying match against Gibraltar and kept a clean sheet at Parc y Scarlets. The Wales side got off to the perfect side and were 1-0 up in just 32 seconds in a game that finished 2-0.

Olivier Ntcham and Ryan Manning were unused substitutes for Cameroon and Ireland respectively, while Joel Latibeaudiere featured just once for Jamaica – a friendly match which resulted in a heavy defeat to Catalonia.
