As many as five Manchester United players could represent their countries tonight in the ongoing UEFA Nations League campaign.
Several Man United players have been decent so far on international duty, with the likes of Diogo Dalot, Bruno Fernandes, Cristiano Ronaldo and Christian Eriksen performing well at their respective countries.
Dalot scored twice, Fernandes managed a goal and Ronaldo provided an assist as Portugal thrashed Czech Republic 3-0 last weekend. Eriksen won the man of the match award after he masterminded Denmark’s comfortable 2-0 win over France, hours after he scored a goal during Denmark’s 2-1 loss at Croatia.
In tonight’s UEFA Nations League fixtures, Manchester United trio Dalot, Fernandes and Ronaldo are all expected to start for Portugal against Spain, given it’s a must-not-lose game in their quest to join others in the finals.
Victor Lindelof and Anthony Elanga could represent Sweden tonight against Slovenia in what has been described as a must-win game for the Yellow and Blue side. Last weekend, Sweden were trounced 4-1 by Serbia away from home.
Man United duo have a chance to help the Blågult avoid getting relegated to the League C of the UEFA Nations League when they face Slovenia at home. Their only win in the group stage was against Slovenia in the reverse fixture and it ended 2-0 and a win tonight will do just fine.
Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay will not be in action tonight when Ukraine host Scotland at Stadion MKS Cracovia.
The Man United defensive midfielder, who has been brilliant for Scotland so far, received a yellow card during last weekend’s 2-1 win over Ireland and as a result, he’s been suspended from tonight’s game.
Scotland are at the top of their group with 12 points, 2 points ahead of 2nd-placed Ukraine. A win or draw against Ukraine will see McTominay’s side get promoted to League A.
The 25-year-old’s absence from tonight’s fixture will come as good news to Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag and their fans as he now has more chances of returning back to Old Trafford without an injury.
