A number of Derby County's players, from both First Team and Academy level, have been away on international duty over the course of the last week.

dcfc.co.uk has taken a look at how the Rams’ players fared across the globe in the second round of matches ahead of returning to Moor Farm Training Ground.

Nathaniel Mendez-Laing

Forward Nathaniel Mendez-Laing picked up another international cap for Guatemala in the early hours of Monday morning in their CONCACAF Nations League clash against Panama on home turf.

The game took place at the Estadio Mateo Flores in Guatemala and ended in a 1-1 draw.

Mendez-Laing's sixth cap for his country saw him replaced at half-time with the hosts trailing to Eric Davis' early goal. Oscar Santis, who came off the bench for the second period, equalised for the hosts in the second half to ensure the points were shared.

Conor Washington

Striker Conor Washington was named in the starting line-up for Northern Ireland as they went down 1-0 in Kazakhstan in their latest UEFA 2024 European Championship Qualifier on Sunday.

A superb first-half goal by Maxim Samorodov was the difference in what was a tight encounter in Astana.

Washington, who played 81 minutes before being replaced, had a shot saved early in the second half as Michael O’Neill’s side chased an equaliser.

The 31-year-old now has 39 caps for Northern Ireland alongside six goals.

Northern Ireland have just three points from their opening six Group H matches and, with four matches left to play, will look to end the campaign positively ahead of their 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Darren Robinson and Charlie Lindsay

Young midfielder Darren Robinson and Under-21s attacker Charlie Lindsay failed to feature for Northern Ireland's Under-21s in their UEFA European Under-21 Qualifier in Ukraine.

They were beaten 1-0 at the Futbalovy Stadion NTC Poprad with Vitaliy Roman scoring the only goal of the game.

Dan Cox

Under-18s defender and second year scholar Dan Cox was the matchwinner as he picked up his second cap for Wales at Under-19 level in their 1-0 friendly victory over Finland at the Jari Litmanen Arena on Monday afternoon.

The centre-back gained his first cap for Wales at Under-19 level by coming off the bench in the first of two friendly matches against Finland last Friday as they fell to a 1-0 defeat.

Cox's first start for Wales' Under-19s, however, brought with it a win, a clean sheet and a well-taken goal just after half-time as he fired home from close range following a free-kick into the penalty area from the left wing.
