After 13 Manchester City players were called up to international duty for last week's UEFA Nations League, Robert Dawley takes a look at how each Blue performed.

Phil Foden

It was publicly a camp of mixed emotions for the young attacking midfielder, who had the honour of making his full England debut against Iceland. He was controversially sent home the next day along with fellow teammate Mason Greenwood after bringing two locals into England's bio-bubble hotel.

Kyle Walker

It was a pretty unsuccessful break for Walker as he saw red after two yellow cards against Iceland in Reykjavik for the three lions. This resulted in him begin suspended for the second game against Denmark. 

Raheem Sterling

Sterling started both of England's games during their two UEFA Nations League ties. He scored the decisive penalty in the first game against Iceland, showing great nerve by slotting it down the middle in the last minute to win 1-0. Despite starting the second game he didn't have the chance to break the deadlock as England drew 0-0.

Nathan Ake-

It was a tough first game for the defender as he saw his side take on a strong Italy side who took the lead just on half time. The Netherlands were unable to fight back in the second period as Roberto Mancini's side ran out winners. In the second game he started in a great defensive display that his side see out a 1-0 victory after the Steven Bergjwin netted the only goal of the game.

Ilkay Gündoğan

Gündoğan started in Germany's 1-1 home draw to Spain earlier last week but was replaced for Suat Serdar after 65 minutes. He also started three days later against Switzerland in another 1-1 draw this time playing the full 90 minutes.

Oleksandr Zinchenko

It was a great first game for the Ukrainian as he managed to score the winner in his countries 2-1 win over Switzerland. The second game however was one to forget as he side fell to a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Spain.

Rodri

The Spanish midfielder was not brought on in his sides first game against Germany but played 70 minutes in their 4-0 battering of Ukraine against fellow Citizen, Zinchenko. 

Ferran Torres

Torres made his debut in his side's 1-1 draw with Germany and scored in his second game against Ukraine having come off the bench. Overall a very successful debut week for the 20 year-old winger.

Eric Garcia

After sitting out his side's 1-1 draw against Germany, the young defender came on as a second half substitute against Ukraine to make his first team international debut.

Kevin De Bruyne

The Belgian missed his nation's 2-0 win over Denmark due to the birth of his third child, but did return for their 5-1 thumping over Iceland where in typical fashion he picked up two assists.

Bernardo Silva

Silva has now established himself as a regular for Portugal having played 45 games at the age of 26. He picked up an assist in his side's 4-1 win over Croatia but just three days later limped off after 20 minutes, as the European Champions defeated Sweden 2-0.

João Cancelo

It was a surprise goal for Cancelo that made the headlines this week as his superb, left-footed strike opened the scoring against Croatia. The full back also played the full 90 minutes in the win over Sweden three days later.
