International Round-Up: September 2023

14 September 2023

With the recent international break now at an end, we take a look at how our international Robins got on with their respective nations.

We start with Cam Peupion, who played a big part in helping Australia U23's to qualification for the AFC U23 Asian Cup in 2024. After being an unused substitute in the opening group game win over Laos, the Olyroos needed just a point against Tajikistan to secure a spot at next years tournament.

And it was the Brighton and Hove Albion loanee who opened the scoring, curling a beauty of a free-kick straight into the top right corner after just 12 minutes. The hosts would level the scores before the break and that was how things ended, a 1-1 draw that saw Peupion and his compatriots finish top of their qualifying group.

It was also a succesful week for Elliot Bonds, who started in both of Guyana's CONCACAF Nations League victories. The Golden Jaguars began the break with a resounding 5-1 win over Antigua and Barbuda.

Following that was a much sterner test, this time at home to the Bahamas. But after falling behind, Bonds and his side fought back to earn a narrow 3-2 victory, keeping their 100% start to their group intact.

Meanwhile Owen Bevan started in Wales U21's friendly victory over Liechtenstein as Matt Jones' side stormed to a 4-0 win at Rodney Parade. He played the full 90 in Newport, however he would be an unused substitute in the sides 3-2 win in Lithuania a few days later. Oli Hammond did not feature in either of Wales' matches this month.

Lastly Luke Southwood was an unused substitute in both of Northern Ireland's Euro 2024 qualifiers over the break. It was a dissapointing couple of games for the side, as they fell to defeat in their matches with Slovenia and Kazakhstan.
