Klich and Dallas started for Poland and Northern Ireland respectively and experienced very contrasting fortunes.

Klich played the first 45 minutes before being substituted as Poland thumped minnows San Marino 5-0 in Warsaw whilst Dallas also started and played 86 minutes before being taken off in a 2-0 defeat against Switzerland in Geneva.

Whites captain Cooper came on in the 95th minute for Scotland in their epic 3-2 success at home to Israel.
