Hammers Abroad: Recapping the October 2018 international break

Before we drive into November, let’s take a look back

Before we look into the West Ham players on international duty this week, a look back at what the Hammers did abroad back last month in October.

Lukasz Fabianski saw three goals get pass him in Poland’s 3-2 loss at home to Portugal in UEFA Nations League A play. Fabianski has flipped flopped as Poland’s #1 goalkeeper with Juventus’ Wojciech Szczesny, who then started in their 1-0 defeat to Italy three days later.

Marko Arnautovic continued his talisman ways for both club and country by getting the winner for Austria in their 1-0 conquest of Northern Ireland in Vienna. That match was a UEFA Nations League League B contest. A few days later, Arnautovic and Austria were blinked 2-0 by Denmark in Herning.

Robert Snodgrass did not featured for Scotland in their defeats to Israel (in National League play) and Portugal (in a friendly).

Before his terrible injury, Andriy Yarmolenko continued to be Ukraine’s top star by being influential in their 1-1 friendly draw vs Italy and their 1-0 Nations League win over the Czech Republic, although Yarmolenko didn’t score in either contest.

And Arthur Masuaku made his long awaited debut for Congo, as the French born international played for the first 82 minute of the game before being subbed off in his country’s 2-1 loss to Zimbabwe in an African Cup of Nations qualifier.
