While the trio of Chelsea starters for Brazil headlined Tuesday's international action, four other Blues' players got international starts during the day's action. Two of Jose Mourino's preferred eleven started on the pitch in Athens, as Serbia defeated Greece 2-0. The pair looked like their usual, composed selves as the Serbs bounced back from their 3-1 defeat to Denmark in Euro 2016 qualifying, playing the full 90 minutes in their victory.

In Glasgow, Gary Cahill got his usual start in the center of the England defense. He only played 66' in the 3-1 victory, and wasn't on the pitch for Scotland's consolation goal.

Cesar Azpilicueta rounded out the Chelsea contingent, starting at right back for Vincente Del Bosque's Spain side in their friendly against Germany. It was a solid,if somewhat unspectacular performance in the 1-0 defeat to Germany, but Azpilicueta probably has his work cut out for him to take the starting right back spot from Juanfran, who was sensational in Spain's previous game.
