A handful of Crystal Palace players were called up to international duty as action got underway this week. Here’s how they got on in our round-up.

Serbia: Luka Milivojevic (32 caps)

Palace skipper Luka Milivojevic played in the majority of Serbia’s 4-2 defeat to Portugal in Euro 2020 qualifying.

The midfielder was replaced with Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic after Bernardo Silva scored Portugal’s fourth four minutes from time.

The two teams traded blows in the second half after Portugal went two goals up through William Carvalho and Goncalo Guedes.

Cristiano Ronaldo would net their third after Nikola Milenkovic pulled one back for the Serbians, before Aleksandar Mitrovic kept their hopes alive at 3-2.

Despite the defeat, Milivojevic did play 90 minutes in Serbia’s 3-1 win over Luxembourg, where Mitrovic grabbed a brace either side of a Nemanja Radonjic strike.

Wales: Wayne Hennessey (85 caps)

Wayne Hennessey closed in on surpassing Gary Speed for most senior Wales caps after he featured in their Euro 2020 qualifying win against Azerbaijan.

The Dragons, who led through a Pavlo Pashaev own goal early on, would be pegged back by a Mahir Emreli equaliser before Gareth Bale netted the winner six minutes from time.

Hennessey, who now has 85 caps for his country, matched the late Speed with his appearance in the 2-1 win.

A few days later, Wales boss Ryan Giggs dropped Hennessey from the starting line-up and replaced him with Leicester City stopper Danny Ward for their clash with Belarus.

It took a powerful, long-range strike from Manchester United’s Daniel James, courtesy of a Jonny Williams assist, which would seal a 1-0 win.

Belgium: Christian Benteke (34 caps)

Christian Benteke watched on from the substitutes’ bench as Belgium thrashed Scotland and San Marino 4-0 each in Euro 2020 qualifying.

The Palace forward was an unused substitute in both clashes, as the Red Devils close in on qualifying for next year’s proper.

Netherlands: Patrick van Aanholt (9 caps)

Patrick van Aanholt, like team-mate Benteke, was an unused substitute in the Netherlands’ respective Euro 2020 qualifying victories against Germany and Estonia.

The Dutch would defeat the Germans 4-2 at Volksparkstadion, in Hamburg, before burying four goals past the Estonians in Talinn.
