Saints duo, James Ward-Prowse and Danny Ings, both played a part in England's 1-0 Nations League win against Iceland earlier today.
While many Saints fans were unsure whether either player would see any noticeable action, Ward-Prowse eventually played the full 90 minutes, putting in an energetic and committed performance - as per normal - while Ings came on as a second-half substitute.
Replacing Manchester City's Phil Foden in the 68th minute, Danny didn't get too much opportunity to impress, however its unlikely that will really matter to him.
Instead, having fought back from two serious injuries (ACL in October 2015; Knee in 2016), his 2nd cap for England should simply prove tremendous reward for a player who has given his all in getting fit, healthy and back to the top!
It caps (no pun intended....) a brilliant 12 months for the ex-Netley Abbey lad, having scored 22 Premier League goals last season and recently securing both the Saints 'Players Player' and 'Fans Player' of the Year awards.
Next up for England is a trip to Denmark on Tuesday (8/9). While every Saints fan will be hoping both players get some further game time in that fixture, they will also be keeping fingers crossed for a safe return to Club duties.
A number of other senior Saints players have been in International action over the weekend, including Jan Bednarek (Poland), Shane Long (Republic of Ireland) and Stuart Armstrong (Scotland).
