Don Cowie's full international debut ended in disappointment as he started and played 78 minutes for Scotland, losing 3-0 to Wales in a friendly.
Winning his second cap, Cowie sampled Arsenal youn gun Aaron Ramsey first-hand as the former Cardiff man setup two and scored a sublime solo effort of his own before half-time.
On Friday night, there was more joy for Watford's U21 clan. Craig Cathcart and Lee Hodson both played against U21 World Champions Germany in a creditable 1-1 draw for the Northern Irish. They come up against the Czech Republic on Tuesday night.
Finally, England's U21 side beat Portugals U21 side 1-0 thanks to a goal from former Hornet's loanee, Danny Rose. Duo Loach and Cleverley started whilst Lansbury was on the bench. On Tuesday, they face Lithuania in the U21's last game of 2009.
Congratulations to all our internationals.
