With the international break finally coming to an end, West Ham's national team stars have all returned to east London to prepare for a frantic end to what has been a largely successful Premier League campaign. 

Here's a roundup of how these players fared on international duty: 

Argentina (Manuel Lanzini)


Manuel Lanzini was called up by Argentina despite the fact that he had just returned recently from a knee injury which had kept him sidelined for eight months. However, he was not listed in their match-day squad in their 3-1 friendly defeat to Venezuela. Argentina have a friendly against Morocco later today.

Austria (Marko Arnautovic) 


Austria's star man was on fine form this week, but it wasn't enough to prevent a disastrous start to his nation's UEFO Euro 2020 qualification campaign. Marko Arnautovic started in both of Austria's Euro 2020 qualifying losses to Poland and Israel, scoring twice against Israel on Sunday.
