Mohamed Elyounoussi and Jannik Vestergaard continue September’s international action for Saints on Sunday with a UEFA Nations League double header.

Elyounoussi’s Norway – 2-0 winners over Cyprus in Group C3 on Thursday night in a match in which the winger featured for the full 90 minutes – face Bulgaria in Sofia at 17.00 BST.

Their hosts kicked off their own Nations League campaign with a 2-1 victory against Slovenia earlier this week.

At the same time, Vestergaard’s Denmark are set to face Wales in Aarhus at the end of a tumultuous week for the Danish FA.

The Saints centre-back, along with a host other leading names, have returned to the national set-up after the FA and players agreed to talks over a commercial rights dispute.

Ryan Giggs’s Welsh side currently lead Group B4 thanks to a resounding 4-1 thrashing of the Republic of Ireland on Thursday.
