Updated: Albion pair get through friendlies
Albion defenders Adam El-Abd and Vitalijs Maksimenko came through friendlies for their respective national teams in today's earlier kick-offs.
El-Abd played the full 90 minutes in Egypt's 3-0 win over Uganda and scored his first international goal by heading home an 83rd minute corner.
The match took place in a surreal atmosphere in El Gouna to a badckdrop of serious unrest in Egypt.
Makismenko had a full game for Latvia against Estonia in Tallinn.
Albion head coach Oscar Garcia will be keen for both to have come through unscathed given his lack of full-backs.
Maksimenko played at left-back against Derby on Saturday while El-Abd, who has been on the bench for both Championship matches so far, has the ability to fill in at full-back if required.
According to reports from Egypt, the Pharaohs played in front of just 300 spectators due to unrest in the country. There was no television coverage and press photographers were not been admitted.
Estonia drew 1-1 with Maksimenko denied a stoppage time winner by the goalkeeper when he tried his luck from outside the box.
