International round-up: Hernandez scores second goal for Cuba

3 June 2021

Onel Hernandez scored his second goal for Cuba on Wednesday evening, as they picked up their first win of World Cup qualification.

In just his third appearance for the country of his birth, Hernandez scored Cuba's second goal in a comfortable win of the British Virgin Islands.

Next up for Hernandez and Cuba is their fourth qualifier against Saint Vincent and the Grenadines on Tuesday (9pm UK).

In Europe, Tim Krul started and played the full 90 minutes as the Netherlands came through the first of two EURO 2020 warm-up matches against Scotland on Wednesday evening.

The Netherlands drew 2-2 with the Scots, twice coming from behind to level with goals from Memphis Depay (2) cancelling out goals from Jack Hendry and Kevin Nisbet.

Krul was due to come up against City teammate Grant Hanley but he was forced to miss the game after being told to self-isolate following Sheffield United midfielder John Fleck's positive COVID-19 test.

The City skipper is still expected to feature in Scotland's final warm-up game against Luxembourg on Sunday, before their EURO 2020 opener against Czech Republic on Monday, June 14.

Also in senior friendly action was Danel Sinani, who's spent this season on loan with Belgian club Waasland-Beveren. Sinani played 90 minutes of Luxembourg's 1-0 defeat to Norway in Malaga, Spain.

Elsewhere in action, former City defender Ben Godfrey made his England debut, coming on as a 62nd minute substitute in their 1-0 win over Austria.

Earlier on Wednesday, Sam Blair was an unused substitute for Republic of Ireland Under-21s as they beat Australia Under-23s 2-1 in a friendly.

Blair's goalkeeping colleague Archie Mair was also left on the bench for Scotland Under-21s 2-1 defeat against Northern Ireland Under-21s.
