Swans on national duty
29th March 2016
It has proved a busy period for the Swans' international contingent, with several players in action for their country.
Ashley Williams and Neil Taylor were on duty for Wales during their friendly matches.
Williams put in a man-of-the-match performance for Wales during the 1-1 draw with Northern Ireland in Cardiff. He featured for the full 90 minutes as Chris Coleman's side struck a last-gasp equaliser from the penalty spot.
The 31-year-old then played for just over an hour of Wales' narrow 1-0 defeat in Ukraine on Monday night, while Taylor was replaced after 72 minutes.
Lukasz Fabianski played the first half of Poland's 1-0 win over Serbia on Wednesday, while he was unused during the 5-0 rout of Finland three days later.
Gylfi Sigurdsson featured for 81 minutes as Iceland went down 2-1 in Denmark. The midfielder is expected to feature again when Iceland visit Greece later today.
Ki Sung-Yueng played the full 90 minutes as South Korea maintained their perfect record in 2018 World Cup qualifying thanks to a last-gasp goal as they beat Lebanon 1-0.
There was huge drama as Ecuador claimed a 2-2 draw thanks to a late equaliser against Paraguay, with Jefferson Montero playing the entire match. Montero could again be involved tonight when they travel to Colombia.
Modou Barrow hopes to help Gambia see off Mauritania in their two-legged tie in the Africa's qualifying stage.
The second leg takes place tonight, with Barrow playing in the first leg which ended in a 2-1 defeat.
There were also plenty of players in action at under-21 level.
Matt Grimes, currently on loan at Blackburn Rovers, made his England Under-21s debut in their 1-1 draw in Switzerland.
He came on for the last 20 minutes of the Uefa Under-21 Championship qualifier, with Grimes replacing Chelsea's Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
Stephen Kingsley featured while Oliver McBurnie was on the bench as Scotland went down 2-0 in France.
The pair could also play a part in Scotland's next game with Northern Ireland today.
Josh Sheehan and Ryan Hedges played the full 90 minutes in Wales' 0-0 draw in Bulgaria.
The pair, along with Swans team-mate Connor Roberts, all hoped to be involved when Wales travel to Romania today.
Adnan Maric, meanwhile, played the entire game as Sweden Under-19s lost 4-0 to Portugal.
He also featured in the first half as Sweden went down 3-1 to Slovenia, while he hopes to be involved in their final game against Russia later today.
