Queens Park Rangers forward Conor Washington played the first 58 minutes as Northern Ireland guaranteed at least a play-off spot in 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying UEFA Group C with a 2-0 win at home to the Czech Republic.

The 25-year-old also started for the Green And White Army on Friday as they won 3-0 in San Marino, playing for 77 minutes before being replaced.

Club mate Pawel Wszolek was called up to the Poland squad for their UEFA Group E qualifiers against Denmark and Kazakhstan, but did not feature in either.

QPR midfielder Massimo Luongo was an unused substitute as Australia beat Thailand 2-1 at home in AFC Group B on Tuesday.

Luongo played the full 90 minutes for Australia in a 2-0 defeat to Japan in another World Cup qualifier last Thursday.

Away from World Cup qualifiers, Michael Petrasso played the full 90 minutes as Canada beat Jamaica 2-0 in a friendly on Saturday.
