A number of United players were in action for their respective nations last night.
Craig Bellamy & Danny Gabbidon (wales)
Bellars completed a second 90 minutes within four days as the Welsh narrowly beat 10-man San Marino 2-1, as did team mate Danny Gabbidon. Fellow Hammer James Collins - who sustained a calf injury last weekend - could only watch on.
Freddie Ljungberg (Sweden) & George McCartney (Northern Ireland)
Ljungberg - who defied the wishes of his club to play in the 3-0 win against Liechtenstein at the weekend - sat out Sweden's 1-1 draw with Northern Ireland, who featured fellow Hammer George McCartney (apologies for our earlier error).
Nobby Solano (Peru)
Alan Curbishley's recent signing from Newcastle - who is yet to start a first team game - was part of the team that suffered a 2-0 defeat against Chile in a World Cup qualifier last night. The result capped a miserable few days for Solano who also played in Saturday's goalless draw with Paraguay.
Christian Dailly (Scotland)
Dailly, who is currently on-loan at SOuthampton, was an unused substitute as the Scots suffered a major blow in qualification by going down 2-0 in Georgia.
Rob Green (England)
Whilst England were getting beaten in Russia - helped by another inept display from Tottenham's Paul Robinson - the country's most in-form keeper, West Ham's Rob Green, was sitting at home watching the nightmare unfold.
Close the door behind you (and take Downing with you), Mr McClaren.
