Derby County had as many as seven players away on international duty during the October break.
Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Conor Washington from Paul Warne's first team were in action whilst a number of youngsters also got a taste of some international football.
Here's a look at how they all got on...
Nathaniel Mendez-Laing - Guatemala
Mendez-Laing featured in both of Guatemala's fixtures in the CONCACAF Nations League.
The Rams winger started in each of the matches, most notably playing 85 minutes in the narrow 3-2 loss to Trinidad and Tobago where he also provided an assist.
He also played 58 minutes as ten-man Guatemala lost 3-0 to Panama.
Conor Washington - Northern Ireland
Striker Washington made substitute appearances for Northern Ireland in both of their UEFA 2024 European Championship Qualifiers.
He played 27 minutes in the 3-0 victory over San Marino and came on as a half-time substitute as Michael O'Neill's side lost out narrowly 1-0 to Slovenia.
Darren Robinson & Charlie Lindsay - Northern Ireland Under-21s
Young midfielder Darren Robinson and forward Charlie Lindsay were both called up to represent Northern Ireland Under-21s.
Lindsay was an unused substitute in the UEFA European Under-21 Championship Qualifier against Azerbaijan where Northern Ireland registered a 1-0 victory, whilst Robinson wasn't part of the squad.
The narrow 2-1 loss to Slovenia in the next match saw Lindsay come on as a substitute in the final ten minutes whereas Robinson was an unused one for that match-up.
Dan Cox - Wales Under-19s
Young defender Dan Cox, who is a second year scholar but been a regular for the Under-21s, had an impressive international break by completing 90 minutes in all three of Wales Under-19's fixtures for their UEFA European Under-19 Championship Qualifiers.
He was part of the team that drew 0-0 with Austria, played out a hard-fought 1-1 draw with England and lost out 3-0 to Montenegro.
Carlos Richards - Gibraltar Under-19s
Under-21s winger Carlos Richards completed 90 minutes in all three of Gibraltar Under-19s' fixtures in the UEFA European Under-19 Championship Qualifiers
Gibraltar were on the receiving end of some unfortunate results, however, losing 10-0 to Norway Under-19s, 6-0 to Hungary Under-19s and 8-0 to Latvia Under-19s.
Niall McAndrew - Republic of Ireland Under-17s
Under-18s midfielder Niall McAndrew played his part as Republic of Ireland Under-17s went unbeaten in their UEFA European Under-17 Championship Qualifiers
McAndrew came on as a substitute as Ireland beat Armenia Under-17s 4-0 before starting both of the following two fixtures which saw them draw 0-0 with Iceland Under-17s and Switzerland Under-17s respectively.
