Luton Town have been represented across three continents during the final international break of 2023.

Starting in Africa for the 2026 World Cup qualifiers, Marvelous Nakamba captained Zimbabwe to draws against Rwanda and Nigeria, who have had an 18-month suspension lifted by FIFA.

The Warriors currently sit fifth in a competitive Group C, with fixtures against Lesotho and South Africa to come in the next batch of qualifiers in summer 2024.

Issa Kaboré also featured in a World Cup qualifier for Burkina Faso but was injured after 45 minutes in their draw against Guinea-Bissau.

Moving to Europe, captain Tom Lockyer will need to go through the play-offs for Wales to qualify for Euro 2024.

The skipper did not feature in the draw at Armenia before starting in the final group-stage match, where Wales missed out on automatic qualification when they were held to a controversial draw with Turkey.

Jacob Brown’s Scotland had already secured automatic qualification for Euro 2024 last month, and our Scotsman started the final group stage game at Hampden Park against Norway.

Thomas Kaminski was on the bench for Belgium across their wins against Serbia and Azerbaijan, while Chieo Ogbene did not feature for Republic of Ireland due to injury.

Joe Johnson’s World Cup journey with England is over after the Young Lions crashed out following defeat to Uzbekistan in the Round of 16 on Wednesday morning.

Ryan Garry’s side had won Group C after Johnson played 76 minutes in the late win against Iran before their shock knockout loss to Uzbekistan.
