International action continues for five Southampton representatives today, including an unusual meeting between Cédric and Jan Bednarek, as they face off in a Nations League tie, despite group placings having already been decided.

Portugal are set to entertain Poland (7.45pm GMT), who have been relegated from Group A3, while the hosts have sealed top spot and a place in the Nations League semi-finals.

The reigning European champions cannot be overtaken at the top, while they will also have the benefit of playing their last-four tie (and possibly the final) on home turf.

Elsewhere, off the back of Saturday's 4-0 win over Albania, Stuart Armstrong's Scotland face a showdown with Israel (7.45pm GMT), where they're now within 90 minutes of promotion from the third tier of the Nations League.

Beat Israel at Hampden Park tonight, and Alex McLeish's men will be two games away from their first major finals in 20 years.

There's also friendly action for two further Saints, as Maya Yoshida's Japan take on Kyrgyzstan (10.20am GMT) and Angus Gunn travels to Denmark with England's Under-21s (5pm GMT).
