How have Manchester United players faired so far during the International break?

Football has been slow for Manchester United in the last couple of weeks due to Premier League cancellations and the international break.

It's quite hard to grasp that Manchester United's last Premier League fixture was the 3-1 win over Arsenal towards the beginning of September.

United also had two games after this, against Real Sociedad and Sheriff Tiraspol in the Europa League, however footballing life at the club has definitely slowed for fans.

However, the club currently has 15 first team players on international duty, and life has certainly not slowed for them.

Here is how the Manchester United players have faired so far on the international stage:


Scott McTominay's Scotland have played one fixture so far, against Ukraine in the Nations League.

The fixture itself was a rousing success, with Scotland coming away as 3-0 victors at Hampden Park, and McTominay himself played 90 minutes in midfield.



Raphael Varane's France defeated Austria 2-0 in the Nations League on Thursday evening.

Raphael Varane was Captain for France during the fixture, with many applauding his great performance as France kept a clean sheet and played the full match.


Christian Eriksen, who has just won Manchester United's Player of the Month award for September, scored an incredible goal as Denmark were defeated by Croatia in the Nations League.

Eriksen played all 90 minutes.


Tyrell Malacia did not feature for the Netherlands on Thursday evening as they beat Poland 2-0 in the Nations League.


New fan favourite Lisandro Martinez played all 90 minutes as Argentina beat Honduras 3-0 in a friendly fixture as the side warms up for the World Cup this winter.


Manchester United have four Brazilian players in the current squad, and two of them, Casemiro and on-loan Alex Telles, started against Ghana.

New Red Devil Antony played 27 minutes as a substitute and Fred did not feature as Brazil came away 3-0 victors in the friendly match held in France.

Facundo Pellistri started for Uruguay however was substituted at half time as they lost 1-0 to Iran. The substitution isn't surprising since Pellistri has only just recovered from a two-month injury.


England faced Euro 2020 foes Italy in the Nations League on Friday evening and came out of the bout worse as Italy triumphed 1-0.

Harry Maguire started and played the full 90 as Luke Shaw had an 18-minute cameo appearance, and Dean Henderson did not feature.
