Dayle Coleing and Gael Bigirimana
Glentoran duo Dayle Coleing and Gael Bigirimana were in international action this week representing Gibraltar and Burundi respectively.
 
Coleing was between the sticks for Gibraltar in their home World Cup qualifier with the Netherlands and, as with the Norway game a few days earlier, impressed against the more illustrious opposition.
 
Although ending up on the wrong side of a heavy defeat, Coleing made several superb saves before going off injured with just over a quarter-of-an-hour remaining.
 
Meanwhile, Bigirimana was called into the Burundi squad for the African Cup of Nations qualifier away to Morocco on Tuesday.
 
Winning his 16th cap, Bigirimana played the full 90 minutes as the Swallows went down to a solitary goal scored on the stroke of half-time.
