Spurs international player round-up - Adebayor & Bentaleb enjoy wins

Christian Eriksen playing for Denmark at Euro 2012

Several Tottenham stars played vital roles in international matches this weekend.

After a busy few days in international football, we gather news of how Spurs players fared for their countries.

Vlad Chiriches played at right back in Romania's feisty game with neighbours Hungary in Bucharest. The visitors drew level late on in a game that enjoyed 11 yellow cards. That the Spurs man played at fullback will be of interest to Spurs fans given that natural right backs Kyle Walker and Kyle Naughton are both currently out injured.

Nacer Chadli scored for Belgium during a dominant 6-0 win over Andorra on Friday, converting Spurs teammate Jan Vertonghen's cross. Mousa Dembele failed to make the pitch. Ben Davies played the full 90 minutes during Wales' goalless draw with Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Saturday saw appearances for Erik Lamela in Argentina's disappointing 2-0 loss to Brazil in China, with the winger playing an hour. Christian Eriksen was present for Denmark against Albania, though he could only help his side to a 1-1 draw. Hugo Lloris was rested for France's win over Portugal, as the goalkeeper nurses a groin injury.

There was better news for Spurs representative looking to make the African Cup of Nations, with Emmanuel Adebayor captaining Togo to a 1-0 win over Uganda. Elsewhere, Nabil Bentaleb played 81 minutes as Algeria won their third straight game with a 2-0 win over Malawi.

For England, Andros Townsend remained on the bench against Estonia on Sunday despite scoring against San Marino last week as the Three Lions recorded a narrow 1-0 win.

Later on on Monday Belgium travel to Bosnia-Herzegovina, with the Spurs trio of Jan Vertonghen, Nacer Chadli and Mousa Dembele all hoping to feature, while Ben Davies and Wales host Cyprus in another Group B clash.

Further matches on Tuesday see possible appearances for Eriksen, Chriches, Lloris and Bentaleb.
