Ade spearheaded the Togo attack as they kept alive their hopes of reaching the tournament finals with a 1-0 win in Uganda, while Nabil played 81 minutes as Algeria notched their third victory from three qualifying matches with a 2-0 triumph in Malawi.

Elsewhere, Erik Lamela played an hour as Argentina were beaten 2-0 by Brazil in an international friendly in Beijing – while in Euro 2016 qualifying, Vlad Chiriches played 90 minutes for Romania as they drew 1-1 at home to Hungary.

It was the same scoreline for Denmark – for whom Christian Eriksen played the full match – as they bagged an equaliser nine minutes from time to draw 1-1 in Albania, also in a Euro 2016 qualifier.

Meanwhile, defender Dominic Ball played for England Under-20s as they registered a dramatic 3-2 victory over the Netherlands in their second match at the Four Nation Tournament, two goals in the final two minutes seeing them overturn a 2-1 deficit to win the game.
