Rocky Bushiri’s cameo in Belgium Under-21s 0-0 draw with Bosnia & Herzegovina U21s on Tuesday night wrapped up six days of 12 Norwich City players representing their countries over the break.

Teemu Pukki was the City player to feature most heavily, playing 175 minutes and scoring two penalties in Finland’s UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers against Greece and Italy.

Max Aarons is next up, having played 170 minutes of England U21s UEFA Euro 2021 qualifiers against Turkey U21s and Kosovo U21s, while Kenny McLean featured in 130 minutes of Scotland’s Euro 2020 qualifying games.

Ben Godfrey played 99 minutes across England U21s’ double header, leading the Three Lions out as captain in their 2-0 win over Kosovo U21s.

Jamal Lewis (pictured) played 90 minutes of Northern Ireland’s Euro 2020 qualifier 2-0 defeat to Germany, and academy goalkeeper Archie Mair did the same for Scotland Under-19s in their 3-2 friendly defeat to Japan U19s.

Todd Cantwell was used sparingly over the break but did make his international debut for England U21s in their game against Kosovo U21s, playing the final 29 minutes.

Michael McGovern came on as a substitute for the final 23 minutes of Northern Ireland’s 1-0 friendly win over Luxembourg, replacing Bailey Peacock-Farrell in goal and holding onto the clean sheet.
