AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth had a number of international players in action over the past week and there was plenty going on in their matches.

A guard of honour, a goalscorer and a head to head clash all featured in a busy international break for the Cherries.

Here's how they got on...

ARTUR BORUC - POLAND

Artur Boruc received a guard of honour in his final ever cap for Poland.

The goalkeeper was called up to face Uruguay so he could be given a special send off from the Polish squad and players.

His 65th cap was his last and he wore the number 65 on his jersey to mark the occasion, coming off in the 44th minute to a guard of honour from his team mates.

LEWIS COOK – ENGLAND

It’s been some weekend for Lewis Cook. He first captained the England under-21s to a 2-0 win over Ukraine, the first time he’d captained the 21s side.

But even better news was to come as the midfielder was called into the senior squad for the first time on Saturday night.

He’ll train with the squad hoping to be selected for the Brazil friendly at Wembley on Tuesday night.

HARRY ARTER – REPUBLIC OF IRELAND

Harry Arter put in a characteristically tireless performance as the Republic of Ireland moved one step closer to the World Cup following a 0-0 draw away to Denmark.

Playing in a holding role, the Cherries midfielder was substituted with three minutes to go after putting in an excellent shift.

The Republic of Ireland have qualified for back-to-back European Championships, but a win would secure their spot at a World Cup for the first time since 2002.

NATHAN AKE - NETHERLANDS

Nathan Ake played 90 minutes for the Netherlands as they were 1-0 winners over Scotland at Pittodrie.

The defender played as a left back throughout the game which saw Memphis Depay score a first-half winner.

He was in good form, in particular to close down James Forrest’s threatening effort to help secure a Dutch clean sheet.

RYAN FRASER - SCOTLAND

Ryan Fraser came up against Ake at Pittodrie, coming off the bench after 71 minutes.

The winger almost scored as well in a lively substitute appearance, taking a lovely first touch before firing an effort wide.

It was his second cap for the senior side.

LYS MOUSSET – FRANCE

Lys Mousset was on the scoresheet on Thursday as the French under-21s side were 3-0 winners over Bulgaria.

Mousset came on for Moussa Dembele in the 63rd minute and scored a superb individual goal.

He collected the ball on the edge of the box and rolled past two men, before dummying an effort to beat the third and calmly slotted the ball in.
