Wins for Keita, Konate, Van Dijk and Gakpo in Monday's internationals
Naby Keita scored as Guinea won while Ibrahima Konate, Virgil van Dijk and Cody Gakpo also enjoyed victories in Monday’s international fixtures.
Liverpool midfielder Keita netted the opening goal early on to set his country on their way to a 3-2 success over Ethiopia in Africa Cup of Nations qualifying. He also set up their second goal before being substituted at half-time.
In Euro 2024 qualification Group B, Konate started and finished France’s 1-0 away victory against the Republic of Ireland, for whom Caoimhin Kelleher was an unused substitute.
Van Dijk captained the Netherlands to a 3-0 home triumph versus Gibraltar that saw Gakpo return from illness to play the second half.
Finally, Kostas Tsimikas had to be substituted midway through the first half of Greece’s friendly goalless stalemate with Lithuania.
