There were just two Southampton players whose teams were in international action over the course of Monday, with Steven Davis and Lloyd Isgrove the two players playing their respective nations.

Davis was named captain in his Northern Ireland side as they gained another win in a friendly against Slovenia as part of their build-up to Euro 2016 this summer.

Isgrove was an unused substitute as his Wales side lost 1-0 away in Ukraine to dent their spirits ahead of the summer Euro's where they will face England.

Most positives for Davis

The Northern Irish side were playing at home against Slovenia in their second friendly of the week following a draw with Wales on Friday.

Davis' men won the match 1-0 in Belfast and have given themselves real confidence ahead of the end of the season before traveling out to France for the Euro's.

The winning goal for the home side came late on in the first half as Queen's Park Rangers Connor Washington scored what proved to be the winner in the 41st minute on his full international debut to spark a great night for the youngster.

Davis was awesome throughout the match and once again led his troops really well as they effectively collected their fourth point of the international week. He will now head back to Southampton to join up with the rest of the first team squad as they continue preparation for the trip to the King Power Stadium on Sunday where they will face the league leaders Leicester City at 1:30 PM GMT.

No action for Isgrove

The Welsh lost to Ukraine in their last friendly before the end of the regular season in what was a really disappointing night for Chris Coleman's side.

Isgrove would have hoped to have featured after making his debut in the draw against Northern Ireland last week, but he was forced to watch from the side-lines as the Welsh fell to their first defeat since the beginning of last year.

The goal came in the first half when Andriy Yarmolenko fired past Crystal Palace stopper Wayne Hennessey to give his side a surprise victory against a Welsh side who really missed the injured pair of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey.

This match was the penultimate friendly before Coleman names his final squad for the Euro's so it is important that Isgrove now goes back to Barnsley and plays as much as possible while hopefully leading them to a potential play-off place.
