Congratulations, Moussa. The 21-year-old made his debut for the France senior team in Strasbourg on Wednesday night. France coach Didier Deschamps called up the Werkself number 19 to his squad for the first time. Diaby started on the bench for the World Cup qualifier against Bosnia-Herzegovina. In the closing stages of the game, the France coach called over the winger to bring him on. Diaby came on for Kylian Mbappé on 90 minutes with the score at 1-1 as he made his debut for the Equipe Tricolore. The match ended all square.

The Finnish Werkself players also started on the bench. First choice keeper Lukas Hradecky was rested for the friendly against Wales and he was replaced by Carljohan Eriksson in Helsinki. Joel Pohjanpalo was also a substitute at the start of the game – he was brought on on 73 minutes but was unable to change the 0-0 scoreline.

Russia, without Andrey Lunev between the sticks, drew 0-0 with Croatia in Moscow in the first World Cup qualifier in Group H. Greece lost 3-1 against Switzerland and friendly and Panos Retsos did not feature in Basel.
