# Liverpool Players Shine on International Duty
Liverpool’s international stars have been in fine form over the past week, with Diogo Jota, Ben Doak, Stefan Bajcetic, Harvey Elliott, Melkamu Frauendorf, Lewis Koumas, Andy Robertson, Alexis Mac Allister, Luis Diaz and Darwin Nunez all representing their countries.
## Diogo Jota’s Brace for Portugal
Diogo Jota was the standout performer for Liverpool’s international contingent, bagging two goals and an assist as Portugal cruised to a 9-0 victory over Luxembourg in Euro 2024 qualifying. His first goal of the evening came from an exquisite ball over the top from Bruno Fernandes before Jota ruthlessly blasted the ball beyond the goalkeeper from the edge of the area to extend his side’s lead to five. The brace took his tally up to 12 goals from his 33 caps to date and he will be hoping to add to that figure during the next set of international fixtures in October.
## Ben Doak Impresses for Scotland U21s
Elsewhere, it was a big night for Ben Doak as he led the line for Scotland U21s in their clash with Spain. The teenager got 77 minutes under his belt and impressed throughout during the 1-0 defeat, giving Liverpool fans plenty more to get excited about as he continued to demonstrate his potential.
Meanwhile Stefan Bajcetic watched on from the bench having made a cameo appearance for Spain last week. Bajcetic recorded his first minutes since suffering his adductor injury in March during the 6-0 thrashing of Malta U21s on Friday. The youngster will be hoping to return to senior action with the Reds in the coming weeks having been named among the substitutes in each of the last three fixtures.
## Harvey Elliott Stars for England U21s
On the topic of young Liverpool midfielders, Harvey Elliott played the full 90 minutes in England U21s 3-0 victory away at Luxembourg. The win maintains the side’s perfect start to the defence of their U21 Euros crown as they bid to qualify for the 2025 edition of the tournament.
## Melkamu Frauendorf and Lewis Koumas Sit Out
Melkamu Frauendorf wasn’t named in the squad for Germany U20s as they drew 1-1 away to Poland, while Lewis Koumas was also forced to sit out as Wales U21s picked up a 1-0 win away at Finland.
## Andy Robertson and South American Trio in Action on Tuesday Night
The international break is almost over but we still have a number of fixtures to navigate on Tuesday night to ensure the Reds travel to Wolves this weekend unscathed. Andy Robertson will lead Scotland out at Hampden Park in a friendly against England, while South American trio Alexis Mac Allister, Luis Diaz and Darwin Nunez are among those expected to be involved for their respective countries.
Liverpool fans will be hoping that all of their players return unscathed from international duty so that they can continue their impressive start to the season. With Diogo Jota and Ben Doak both impressing on the international stage, there is plenty for Reds fans to be optimistic about heading into the new season.
