Goals for Vela and Bendtner - but woe for WalcottArsenal get back into the chase for the Premier League title, the players go off for international duty. Goal.com UK reveals who had a blinder, who had a nightmare and who limped off the field injured.
Bacary Sagna (France)
Despite the fact that France lost to Spain 2-0, Sagna had an impressive game at right-back. Defensively sound and a threat down the wing.
Thomas Vermaelen (Belgium)
Played the whole 90 minutes for Belgium against Croatia but was unable to prevent his side from slipping to a 1-0 defeat thanks to a Niko Krancjar goal.
Cesc Fabregas (Spain)
A starter in midfield for Spain's 2-0 win over France. A solid performance but was not key to the victory.
Tomas Rosicky (Czech Republic)
Played 67 minutes of the Czech Republic's 1-0 defeat to Scotland and was the best player on the pitch. Unlucky not to have one pass converted into a goal.

Alex Song (Cameroon)
Started for Cameroon in their goalless away draw against Italy. Was withdrawn after 58 minutes after getting a kick earlier on in the match.
Andrey Arshavin (Russia)
Russia drew 1-1 against Bulgaria away from home thanks to Arshavin's shot that went in off Bilyaletdinov's knee.
Emmanuel Eboue (Ivory Coast)
Unable to prevent the Elephans from slipping to a shock 2-0 defeat against South Korea in a game played at QPR's Loftus Road ground.
Theo Walcott (England)
Made a positive start when he crossed into Frank Lampard's path in the first five minutes, only for Lampard to shoot at the 'keeper; but his influenced waned. Hauled off for Shaun Wright Philips after 59 minutes. England beat Egypt at home 3-1.
Came on as a substitute in the 55th minute for Olic but failed to score in Croatia's 1-0 victory over Belgium.
Carlos Vela (Mexico)
Scored Mexico's second goal of their 2-0 home win against New Zealand, dribbling past three players before slotting home from 12 yards. But bad news for Arsenal fans... he limped off the field injured before the final whistle.
Nicklas Bendtner (Denmark)
Continued his scoring run by bagging another headed goal last night. Was, however, unable to prevent Denmark's eventual 2-1 away loss to Austria.
