Ibrahima Konaté drew the start for France in their 1-0 over Caoimhin Kelleher's Republic of Ireland squad, but the keeper did not see any time on the pitch. Virgil van Dijk captained and played the full 90 minutes in the Netherlands' 3-0 win over Gibraltar while Cody Gakpo was an unused substitute. Kostas Tismikas came on as a substitute in Greece's scoreless draw with Lithuania.

The Break wraps up on March 28th. Stay tuned to LFCGlobe for further updates on other players such as Mohomed Salah's exploits for Egypt and how Havey Elliott and Curtis Jones performed for England's U-21 squad.

LFC Globe Verdict

Somewhat surprisingly, Naby Keita has been the only Liverpool player to score so far in the International window. Others have played well while some have not even seen the pitch. There is still one more round of games to go before they return to the club. Here's hoping they make it a productive one.
