It was a relatively quiet evening on Wednesday for Chelsea international action.

Ethan Ampadu and Billy Gilmour remained as unused substitutes for Wales and Scotland respectively, in UEFA Nations League games at home to the Netherlands and Armenia, so instead the action centred around Michy Batshuayi who started and played 84 minutes for Belgium in their Nations League match against Poland. Romelu Lukaku was missing due to an ankle injury.The Belgians came back from going a goal down at home to win very well, with the 6-1 final score giving them their first win in their group after a heavy opening-match defeat to the Dutch.Against Poland, Batshuayi assisted for the third goal late in the game but there was certainly plenty of involvement early on for the striker, who spent last season on loan at Besiktas.In the fourth minute he hit the post having shot across the goalkeeper, with Eden Hazard missing the rebound. A minute later, on the counter-attack and from a Hazard back-heeled pass, Batshuayi had the ball in the net but was marginally offside.

However with his first chance, Robert Lewandowski put the Poles ahead but Alex Witsel equalised shortly before half-time. Kevin De Bruyne from a Hazard assist gave them a 2-1 lead an hour in.That lead was extended when substitute Leandro Trossard scored, with Batshuayi escaping with the ball from a challenge and playing it on to the Brighton man to cut in and finish for 3-1.In the last 10 minutes, though Batshuayi missed an opportunity, Trossard scored again, Leander Dendoncker finished emphatically, and Vitesse’s Lois Openda also found the net to reward Belgium’s dominance.In the Wales game, Ampadu watched on as there was late drama in Cardiff.The Netherlands scored early in the second half but Wales thought they had saved a point with an added-time header from Rhys Norrington-Davies, only for the Dutch to go straight down the other end and score a winner from the head of Wout Weghorst, condemning the side who had just qualified for Qatar to a first defeat in 20 home outings.In Scotland’s opening game in the Nations League following their World Cup play-off disappointment, two first-half headed goals were enough for a 2-0 win for Gilmour’s team-mates. Celtic wing-back Anthony Ralston on his first start and Forest defender Scott McKenna were the scorers against the Armenians.
