Sunderland had 5 players out on international duty this week, here's how they got on:
Gary Breen - An unused sub in Ireland's resounding 3-0 defeat of Sweden at Lansdowne Road.
Stephen Elliot - Played 48 minutes in the game in another step towards his full recovery from injury.
Liam Lawrence - Another unused sub tonight but will be delighted to have been involved in Steve Staunton's first Ireland squad.
Steven Caldwell - Started as sub and came on for the last half an hour but could do nothing to prevent the Scots crashing to a 3-1 defeat at home to Switzerland, with January Sunderland transfer target Ricardo Cabanas on target for the Swiss.
Danny Collins - An unused sub in their 0-0 draw at home to Paraguay.
Justin Hoyte - Played the final 25 minutes in his first game for England Under 21's since rejecting the advances of World Cup bound Trinidad and Tobago. The youngsters won 3-1 against Norway at the Madjeski Stadium, Reading on Tuesday night.
