International round-up: Lewis clocks another 90 minutes for Northern Ireland

12 September 2018

Jamal Lewis played yet another full match for Northern Ireland on Tuesday as they eased past Israel in their latest international.

Lewis started and finished the game at left-back as Michael O'Neill's men bounced back from their UEFA Nations League defeat to Bosnia and Herzegovina on Saturday.

Goals from Steven Davis and Stuart Dallas gave them a 2-0 advantage at the interval, with Gavin Whyte adding a third in the second-half.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Michael McGovern was introduced as a second-half substitute and managed to help Northern Ireland seal a clean sheet.

Elsewhere, Teemu Pukki scored Finland's matchwinner for the second Nations League game running as they beat Estonia 1-0 on Tuesday. 

The City striker, who scored the only goal in Finland's win over Hungary at the weekend, got on the end of a cross from Pyry Soiri to guide the ball into the net with his right-foot.

Following the two victories, Finland sit atop of Group 3 in League C with their next competitive match coming against Estonia in the return fixture next month.

Timm Klose was an unused substitute as Switzerland were beaten 1-0 by Gareth Southgate's England at the King Power Stadium, with Marcus Rashford scoring the winner.

At youth level, Max Aarons made his debut for England Under-19s in the 2-1 friendly win over Belgium and Adam Idah was introduced as a substitute as Republic of Ireland Under-19s beat Wales 2-0, also in a friendly.
