      A comprehensive look at the Juventus players in action for their countries on Thursday and Friday night, with matches played in Europe as well as the United States.

      ITALY

      It finished 1-1 in Bologna between Italy and Poland, in the Azzurri's debut in the UEFA Nations League.

      Poland led the match at half-time after Napoli's Piotr Zielinski scored in the 40th minute, as he fired a cross past Gianluigi Donnarumma in the Italy goal. The Italians equalised in the 78th minute after second half substitute, Federico Chiesa was brought down in the box and Jorginho scored the resulting penalty.

      Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci and Federico Bernardeschi all started the match, playing the full 90 minutes, whilst Mattia Perin and Daniele Rugani were unused substitutes.

      During the night, our South American players were also in action in matches all played in the United States.
