Six London City Lionesses were selected for international duty, representing their respective countries on the world stage.

Hayley Nolan, Lily Agg, and Kyra Carusa turned out for the Republic of Ireland, while Grace Neville travelled down under to join New Zealand for the second time.

Jamie-Lee Napier wore the blue of Scotland, with Atlanta Primus back in action with Jamaica.

With that, here is a full recap of the latest international window.

Republic of Ireland: Hayley Nolan, Lily Agg, Kyra Carusa

Lily Agg and Kyra Carusa added another international cap to their collections as the Republic of Ireland played out a scoreless draw with China on Wednesday.

The Girls in Green produced a solid defensive performance in the face of serious pressure from China, another squad deep in their preparations for the FIFA Women’s World Cup. Hayley Nolan was an unused substitute.

  • Wednesday, 22 February: China 0-0 Republic of Ireland

Scotland: Jamie-Lee Napier

Jamie-Lee Napier made her senior international debut for Scotland in the Pinatar Cup versus the Philippines, appearing as a late substitute for Pedro Martínez Losa’s side.

The 22-year-old played an important role for Scotland in their win over the Philippines, making a key interception in midfield and completing all of her passes.

“I think now is the perfect time to get back into the squad, it feels like a fresh start,” said Napier before the break. “It feels like the ideal time for me to settle in, make my mark, and hopefully turn this into the first of many call-ups.”

The Scottish FA is yet to announce their schedule for the rest of the season, with friendlies anticipated for the months ahead.

  • Wednesday, 15 February: Iceland 2-0 Scotland

  • Saturday, 18 February: Scotland 2-1 Philippines

  • Tuesday, 21 February: Scotland 1-1 Wales

New Zealand: Grace Neville

Neville also played the full-90 in the repeat fixture, as the Football Ferns were beaten 1-0 by Argentina.

The 22-year-old produced a pair of solid performances while on international duty, with competition for places in the New Zealand squad intensifying as the nation prepares to co-host the World Cup.

  • Friday, 17 February: New Zealand 0-5 Portugal

  • Monday, 20 February: New Zealand 0-2 Argentina

  • Thursday, 23 February: New Zealand 0-1 Argentina

Jamaica: Atlanta Primus

Atlanta Primus made nine ball recoveries and won 63 percent of her aerial duels as Spain defeated Jamaica 3-0 in the Cup of Nations. The 1997-born forward played the full match, demonstrating her ability to stick with some of the best players on the planet ahead of the Reggae Girls’ trip to the World Cup.

  • Thursday, 16 February: Spain 3-0 Jamaica

  • Sunday, 19 February: Jamaica 2-3 Czech Republic

  • Tuesday, 21 February: Australia 3-0 Jamaica
