- Find out when Town’s players might feature next
Two of Town’s three players on international duty have been in action during the first week of the current break.
Find out more about their involvements, including a big moment for B Team man Charles Ondo!
Charles Ondo, Equatorial Guinea
Teenage forward Charles Ondo made his debut for the senior Equatorial Guinea side on Wednesday evening, coming on as a late substitute during their 1-1 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying game against Libya in Benghazi.
Charles replaced Josete Miranda for the final five minutes in Guinea’s only game of this current break, which was his first cap for his nation.
Although he was born in Madrid and grew up in London, Charles qualifies for this nation through his parents.
Equatorial Guinea have already qualified from Group J with 13 points from six games, finishing second to group winner Tunisia on goal difference. That means Charles will be hoping to head to the final tournament, which takes place in the Ivory Coast between 13 January and 11 February 2024.
Brodie Spencer, Northern Ireland
Brodie was an unused substitute for Northern Ireland’s first game – a 4-2 defeat in Slovenia that dented their hopes of qualifying for the 2024 European Championships.
The Irish have another game in Kazakhstan on Sunday 10 September, where the 19-year-old will be hoping to add to the three caps he’s already earned.
Pat Jones, Wales Under-21s
Pat came on after an hour in Wales’ 4-0 friendly win over the Liechtenstein Under-23 side.
He played a big role in their third goal, beating his man on the outside and playing in a cross that was eventually converted at the near post.
Pat could feature again in a European Under-21 qualifier on Tuesday in Lithuania, 4pm kick-off UK time.
