The in-form Ashley Young scored the winner in England's 1-0 defeat of Wales at Wembley

Numerous Manchester United players were back in action again on Tuesday for international duty. Here is the full round-up of your international Reds:

* Ashley Young | England | London, England: The in-form United attacker contributed again when he scored the winner in England's 1-0 defeat of Wales at Wembley while playing the full 90 minutes.. His former Aston Villa teammate, Stewart Downing, whipped in a cross in the 35th minute that Young clinically finished to beat Wales goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey. England now are six points clear in their Euro 2012 qualifying group and they can secure a place in Poland and Ukraine with just a draw in October when they travel away to Montenegro. 

* Wayne Rooney | England | London, England: The United talisman started and went 89 minutes before being subbed off for Andy Carroll late in the match. Rooney did not score nor assist in this match, but he did bag a brace in last Friday's qualifier at Bulgaria.

* Chris Smalling | England | London, England: The youngster continued his recent emergence at right-back, for both club and country, with another solid performance against Wales. Smalling played the full 90 minutes.

* Darren Fletcher | Scotland | Glasgow, Scotland: The midfielder continued his comeback from a virus, one that has kept him out for the better part of 2011, with another 90 minute performance for Scotland. In their 1-0 victory over Lithuania in a Euro 2012 qualifier, Fletcher failed to convert a penalty in the 45th minute. In Scotland's qualifier versus the Czech Republic on Saturday, Fletcher scored a goal in a 2-2 draw. The industrious midfielder has yet to feature for United in the current season, but his consecutive 90 minute performances for Scotland is a sign that he is ready to service his club once again. Scotland sit third in Group I of Euro 2012 qualifying and are two points shy of the Czech Republic for 2nd place - a place that would earn them a play-off for the finals. 

* Patrice Evra | France | Bucharest, Romania: In a Euro 2012 qualifier versus Romania, Group D leaders France played to a scoreless draw. United left-back Evra started and went the full 90 minutes. The draw cut down France's lead to a single point in their group.
