Saints' International Roundup: Saturday, October 11

Toby Alderweireld helped Belgium rout Andorra, but others have to wait to get on the field

Richard Heathcote

With as many as 16 players on international duties, it's going to be a busy week for Southampton players despite the absence of domestic football. Here we tracked how some of them get on.

Alderweireld helped Belgium rout Andorra 6-0

Belgium was off to a flying start in their Euro qualifiers campaign with a 6-0 win over Andorra. Alderweireld played the whole 90 minutes and helped kept a clean sheet. Belgium will next play Bosnia and Herzegovina.

England cruise; Clyne & Forster did not play

As expected, England beat San Marino 5-0 with goals from Phil Jagielka, Wayne Rooney, Andros Townsend, Danny Welbeck, and an own goal. Clyne and Forster though, remained on the bench for 90 minutes. England will next play Estonia in Talinn.

Chiellini grabbed all the goals; Pellè remained on the bench

Italy defeated Azerbaijan 2-1, all three goals was scored by Giorgio Chiellini. Graziano Pellè though, was an unused sub. He'll be hoping to see some action as Italy visit Malta on Monday.

Mané draw blanks against Tunisia

Senegal was held to goalless draw by Tunisia in The Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2015 qualifiers. Mané created one glorious chance for fellow England-based forward, but Papiss Cisse's shot was deflected and hit the crossbar.
