INTERNATIONALS: MOSES AND CHALOBAH IN ACTION

Both Nathaniel Chalobah and Victor Moses were involved on the international stage tonight (Wednesday).

At the Toulon Tournament, England had to settle for a point after allowing a one-goal lead to slip against Korea Republic.

Nathaniel Chalobah started in midfield for Gareth Southgate’s side, who took the lead through Cauley Woodrow early on.

However, the Three Lions were unable to make their first-half dominance count and they were made to pay when Lee Changmin equalised in the second half.

The result ensures group B leaders Brazil go through to the final, with England needing to avoid defeat against Colombia to secure a spot in the third-place play off.

Josh McEachran was an unused substitute for the second consecutive match.

At senior level, Victor Moses was a second-half substitute for Nigeria as they drew 2-2 against Scotland.

Moses, who spent the season on loan at Liverpool, came on just after hour, replacing Ejike Uzoenyi for the Super Eagles, in a game that was played at Fulham’s Craven Cottage.

Scotland had come from behind to lead 2-1 before Nigeria equalised in the 90th minute through Uche Nwofor.

John Mikel Obi and Kenneth Omeruo, who today signed a new contract with the Blues, weren’t involved for Nigeria.

Christian Cuevas was a second-half substitute at the Toulon Tournament yesterday as Chile drew 2-2 with Mexico.

Cuevas was introduced to the action with 24 minutes left to play, coming on for Joaquin Montecinos.

Christian Atsu scored a hat-trick for Ghana last Friday as they warmed up for the World Cup with a 6-1 win over a local select side at the Accra Stadium.

Atsu, who spent the season on loan at Vitesse Arnhem and was voted the club’s Player of the Year by supporters, opened the scoring after just three minutes.

The attacking midfielder then doubled Ghana’s advantage soon after when he scored from close range, before completing his hat-trick with a well-taken third after bringing the ball down with his chest inside the penalty area.

Ghana open their World Cup campaign on 16 June against USA.
