Left back Aaron Cresswell wasn't the only West Ham player on duty for his country during the international break. Before their game against Tottenham, get caught up on which Hammers were representing their nations last week at the senior level.

Darren Randolph - The West Ham backup goalkeeper was sensational in Ireland’s terrific 1-0 over Austria in Vienna, to give the Republic a big result that keeps them in first in arguably the toughest group, Group D, of the UEFA qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup.

Harvard Nordtveit - Did not play at all in his country’s 2-1 defeat to the Czech Republic, as Norway’s faint World Cup playoff hopes continue to fade away.

Sofiane Feghouli - The energetic midfielder was only a late substitute in Algeria’s clear 3-1 loss to Nigeria in CAF World Cup qualifying. Feghouli came on for Mohamed Ziti, a defender who plays in the Algeria League, in the 80th minute.

Cheikhou Kouyate - The captain of Senegal saw his side lose 2-1 away to South Africa, in the early stages of the third and final round of CAF World Cup qualifying.

Andre Ayew - The Ghana captain saw his nation continue a very slow start to the final round of CAF World Cup qualifying, losing 2-0 to main group rivals Egypt.

Dimitri Payet - It was a scrappy French performance, but Payet continued his terrific last 15 months with the winning goal in their 2-1 win over Sweden. The dynamic winger also started in their friendly vs Ivory Coast.

Edmilson Fernandes - Like Cresswell, the young 21-year-old Fernandes made his debut for his country at senior level, as Switzerland secured an expected win over the Faroe Islands, 2-0, to stay atop of Group B.
