JAMES Ward-Prowse was one of six Saints stars in international action this week, despite being cut from England's Euro 2020 squad.

The midfielder has remained with Gareth Southgate's group for two warm-up games ahead of the tournament beginning next week.

And the 26-year-old came off the bench for the final half an hour to earn his seventh senior England cap, as the Three Lions beat Austria 1-0 at Riverside Stadium in Middlesbrough.

Arsenal's Bukayo Saka netted the only goal of the contest.

Elsewhere, Stuart Armstrong helped Scotland to an impressive 2-2 draw with Holland in Portugal.

Also gearing up for the Euros, Steve Clarke's side twice led against the Dutch with goals from Jack Hendry and Kevin Nisbet, only for Memphis Depay to twice strike and ensure the contest finished level.

Armstrong played the full 90 minutes on his 25th cap, providing an assist.

Che Adams was one of six players to miss out for Scotland, as a precaution following a positive COVID-19 test returned by team-mate John Fleck.

Jannik Vestergaard also helped his nation to a creditable draw, as Denmark finished all square with Germany.

The centre-back played the full game of the friendly contest in Austria, with Florian Neuhaus's strike cancelled out by Yussuf Poulsen as the game ended 1-1.

Jan Bednarek earned his 30th Poland cap, coming off the bench in a 1-1 draw with Russia, with both sides preparing for Euro 2020.

Elsewhere, two of Saints' youngsters went head-to-head in Marbella.

Caleb Watts started for Australia's Olympic side as they took on Republic of Ireland under-21s in a friendly.

Fellow Saints academy talent Will Ferry lined up for the Irish, playing the full 90 minutes.

Ireland took the lead thanks to a Jay Rich-Baghuelou own goal, only for Ramy Najjarine to equalise in impressive fashion.

However, Ireland snatched a 2-1 victory at the death thanks to debutant substitute Ross Tierney, the Bohemians midfielder heading home past Ebbsfleet United goalkeeper Jordan Holmes.
