Heung-Min Son put in a full shift for South Korea as they beat Syria 1-0 in Seoul in World Cup qualifying, while Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembele all started for Belgium in their 3-3 friendly draw in Russia.
Toby and Jan, once again captaining the side, played the full game at the back while Mousa was substituted in the 85th-minute.
Meanwhile, goalkeeper Hugo Lloris captained France in a 2-0 home defeat to Spain – a contest notable for the use of video technology to assist the referee.
Kevin Wimmer was an unused substitute for Austria as they were held 1-1 at home by Finland, as was Michel Vorm for the Netherlands in their 2-1 home defeat by Italy.
Elsewhere, youngsters TJ Eyoma and Tashan Oakley-Boothe both completed 90 minutes for England Under-17s as they rounded off their European Championship elite round qualifiers in Bosnia-Herzegovina with a 1-0 victory against the host nation.
