Jokic and Rukavina see action in internationals; Musacchio does not

A mixed bag for the Villarreal internationals.

Antonio Rukavina played for Serbia in their 2-2 draw versus the Republic of Ireland in Belgrade on Monday.   Ruka played all 90 minutes in midfield, on the right side in a 3-4-3 setup.

2-2 was a popular scoreline too for Slovenia; they drew away to Lithuania in Vilnius.  Bojan Jokic played all 90 minutes in that one, left back in a 4-3-1-2.

Mateo Musacchio didn't see action for Argentina at all in either of their qualifiers, a 1-0 win over Uruguay Sept 1 or a 2-2 draw in Venezuela today.

Cedric Bakambu I believe traveled to see DR Congo in action, but was not part of their squad.  And internationals Jonathan dos Santos and Denis Cheryshev are just about recovered from injury and ready to go, we hope.

EDIT--Forgot Akram Afif (on loan now, of course).  He played for Qatar but they lost both their matches in their qualifying group.

Anyone else hate these international breaks?  At least this one has given a few injuries a chance to heal.
