Scally, Itakura and Fraulo all start

Four Foals made appearances for their countries on Friday. Joe Scally (USA), Ko Itakura (Japan) and Oscar Fraulo (Denmark U21) all started their respective games, whilst Luca Netz came off the bench for Germany’s U21s. Marcus Thuram was an unused substitute for France.


Marcus Thuram and the French national team got of to a flying start in the EURO 2024 qualifiers. The World Cup runners-up beat the Netherlands 4-0 at the Stade de France. Borussia attacker Thuram was an unused substitute for the game, but he had reason to be pleased: his brother Képhren was brought on in the 89th minute for his senior international debut. The game’s goals were scored by Antoine Griezmann and Dayot Upamecano, as well as a Kylian Mbappe brace. The next opponents for France are the Republic of Ireland.

Braces for Ricardo Pepi and Weston McKennie, and goals from Brenden Aaronson, Christian Pulisic and Alejandro Zendejas gave the American team the three points. Those who want to watch their next game in Europe will need to stay up late – kickoff is 02:30 CEST for the match against El Salvador.
