Jeffrey Bruma (pictured) continued the impeccable start to his Under 21 international career as Netherlands made it four wins out of four in their European Championship qualification group, all without conceding a goal.

On his 18th birthday, the defender, who made his Chelsea first team debut last month, played the whole of a 3-0 home win against Liechtenstein.

It was also a landmark Friday for Fabio Borini as he made his Italy Under 21 debut aged just 18. The striker, another recent Chelsea debutant, was introduced by coach Pierluigi Casiraghi at half-time in an away match in Hungary.

Unfortunately, playing up front with Inter Milan regular Mario Balotelli, Borini could not help his side turn around a one-goal deficit and Hungary added another late on to win 2-0. Italy are behind Wales and Hungary in their group and have their work cut out to qualify.

Conor Clifford, recently capped by Republic of Ireland Under 21s, was back with the Under 19s on Friday and played the full 90 minutes in a 5-0 home win over San Marino. It was the first game in a European Championship qualification campaign for the midfielder's team.

In the same group are Italy who included Jacopo Sala in their midfield and matched Ireland with a 5-0 home win over Albania.

Sala, who was delivering many of the dead-balls, was subbed on 66 minutes.

Goalkeeper Jan Sebek made his debut for Czech Republic Under 19s and although he didn't keep a clean sheet, was still victorious as his side ran out 3-1 winners over Cyrpus.

Gael Kakuta played for France Under 19s in a 3-3 draw against Greece in friendly tournament, having played the first-half of a 1-0 win over Poland on Wednesday.
