Swans in international action

First team

Cameron Carter-Vickers made his first appearance of the season as the USA claimed a creditable victory over Mexico in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

The defender is yet to feature for Swansea City after joining on loan from Tottenham Hotspur last month.

But he got some much-needed game-time under his belt as the Americans chalked up a 1-0 friendly triumph in Tennessee.

Carter-Vickers, who played the full 90 minutes for his country, will now travel back to Wales ahead of the Swans’ Championship clash with Nottingham Forest this weekend.

Joel Asoro is also heading back to SA1 having played the full 90 minutes as Sweden Under-21s were beaten 1-0 at home by Turkey in a Uefa Under-21 Championship qualifier on Tuesday night.

Closer to home, Swans youngster Brandon Cooper made his first appearance for Wales Under-21s as they were beaten 2-0 by their Portuguese counterparts in Bangor.

Swans colleagues Daniel James and Cian Harries also played the full game, while Aaron Lewis and Liam Cullen were unused substitutes.

Three players who could face the Swans in Forest colours this weekend – Joao Carvalho, Gil Dias and Diogo Goncalves – featured for the Portuguese.
