Leeds United’s international representatives had a relatively quiet night tonight, splitting around 100 minutes between the three of them.
The Leeds battle of Ezgjan Alioski and Mateusz Klich never came to fruition in Poland’s 2-0 win over North Macedonia in Warsaw. Klich never got off the bench, but Alioski played the full match for the visitors picking up a booking for dissent.

North Macedonia held out until the 74th minute before goals from Chicago Fire midfielder Przemyslaw Frankowski and Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik sealed Poland’s EURO 2020 qualification with two matches to spare.
Tyler Roberts played the final 10 minutes of Wales’ 1-1 draw with 2018 World Cup finalists Croatia. Croatia took the lead in the 9th minute through CSKA Moscow (and former Everton) forward Nikola Vlasic, but Wales equalised on the stroke of half-time through Gareth Bale.
Roberts replaced Wigan Athletic striker Kieffer Moore up front, but unfortunately for Roberts, Real Madrid winger Bale got injured soon after forcing Roberts to drop into a more defensive role out wide.

Hopefully, tomorrow will be more eventful for the Leeds contingent.
