Nine Manchester City players completed their international duties tonight, all of which were in World Cup qualifying action. Raheem Sterling and Ferran Torres were the pick of the City bunch, both providing electric displays for their nations.

Here's how they got on... 


All four of Manchester City's England representatives started their tough qualifying game at home to Poland this evening - a game they won 2-1.

Raheem Sterling was in scintillating form, constantly sparking England attacks involving one bursting run which earned a penalty converted by Harry Kane, before being replaced late in the game. John Stones made up for his error leading to Poland's equaliser by setting up Harry Maguire's winner. Kyle Walker completed 90 minutes, whilst Phil Foden was substituted on 86 minutes.

It was a proud night individually for Manchester City full-back Oleksandr Zinchenko, who captained his side once again to a 1-1 draw against Kazakhstan. The 24-year-old even registered an assist for Ukraine's opening goal of the night.


Speaking of captaincy, Ilkay Gundogan took on the German armband tonight, where he got his side back on level terms from the penalty spot. Unfortunately, his nation fell to a hugely disappointing defeat to North Macedonia, following a late Eljif Elmas strike.


Of the Spanish contingent, Ferran Torres and Eric Garcia started the game, with Rodri dropping to the bench. It was a brilliant night for Torres, who scored his fifth goal in four appearances for his country. Eric Garcia also completed the full 90 minutes without injury, while Rodri composed the midfield during the closing stages, coming on in the 82nd minute for Sergio Busquets.
