Five London City Lionesses featured for their countries in the international break, with Atlanta Primus and Jamie-Lee Napier recording victories with Jamaica and Scotland respectively.

Napier made a pair of substitute appearances for Scotland as Pedro Martinez Losa’s side secured back-to-back wins over Australia and Costa Rica.

Napier was lively in both games, adding pace and skill on the flank as Scotland closed out a pair of hard-fought victories.

Primus, meanwhile, produced a standout performance for Jamaica in their 2-0 win over Barclays Women’s Championship opponent Sheffield United.

The London-born attacker was a positive influence across the pitch, popping up in pockets of space to help the Reggae Girlz turn defence into attack against the Blades.

Elsewhere, Kyra Carusa and Hayley Nolan appeared for the Republic of Ireland in a back-to-back series versus the United States.

San Diego-born Carusa played both matches in their entirety, leading the line for Vera Pauw’s squad as their FIFA Women’s World Cup preparations intensify.

Nolan featured in the second fixture, producing a 32-minute performance in central defence.

Grace Neville secured her fourth international cap with New Zealand, playing the final half-hour in a 1-1 draw with Iceland.

Scotland's Sarah Ewens and Ireland's Lily Agg were forced to withdraw from their respective camps due to injury.
