Six Wolves players were on duty for their countries during the second international break of the season, with all of them featuring on either Tuesday or Wednesday in the final set of matches.
Austria rely on Bundesliga experience
Austria took on Romania in Ploiesti on Wednesday evening. Coach Franco Foda selected Pavao Pervan and Xaver Schlager in the starting line-up, with the Wolfsburg players helping to steer their team to a crucial 1-0 win in Nations League B, Group 1.
Fifteen-minute cameo for Mehmedi
Switzerland are still in search of their first win in the Nations League (League A, Group 4), but they certainly came close this time around. The ‘Nati’ took the lead twice but ended up drawing 3-3 with Germany in Cologne. Mehmedi came on in the 75th minute for Switzerland, who currently sit bottom of their group on two points.
Assist for Brekalo
Croatia were unlucky to slip to a 2-1 defeat in their Nations League tie against World Cup winners France in Zagreb. VfL’s Josip Brekalo played the second half and set up the equaliser, but unfortunately for Croatia they were unable to hold out for a draw.
Baku plays the whole match, Bialek on as a sub
Germany’s U21 team are back in charge of their own destinies when it comes to qualifying for the European Championship. Coach Stefan Kuntz’s charges defeated Bosnia-Herzegovina 1-0 in Fürth, with recent VfL recruit Ridle Baku playing the full 90 minutes.
Poland’s U21s had to be content with a share of the points against Bulgaria, and currently sit second in Group 5. The match in Gdynia ended 1-1, with Bartosz Bida’s 66th-minute effort cancelling out Zdravko Dimitrov’s opener after 41 minutes. Bartosz Bialek was brought on seven minutes before the end.
