Wrapping up the international window, and keeping an eye on Nashville SC’s players out on loan

Midfielder Aníbal Godoy

On international duty with Panama

Godoy made a clean sweep of full 90s (and wearing the armband) over the World Cup Qualifying window in Panama’s 1-1 draw against Mexico. He completed 88% of his passes and committed one foul in the draw.

With the result, Panama sits fourth in the Octagonal.

Defender Alistair Johnston

On international duty with Canada

As with his club teammate, Godoy, Johnston played 90 minutes in Canada’s third match of the window, making it a clean-sweep 270 played in the stretch. He helped Canada to a 3-0 win over El Salvador, playing as a right back in a 4-2-3-1 formation (after previously being primarily a right-sided centerback in a back-5), completing 95% of his passes.

Canada sits tied with the USMNT for second in the table (down to the “drawing lots” tiebreaker at this point, since the home-and-home is not completed) after one window.

Winger Randall Leal

On international duty with Costa Rica

Leal got only a light run-out in Costa Rica’s third game of the qualifying window, entering as a 75th-minute sub in the Ticos‘ 1-1 draw against Jamaica. He plays as a central box-to-box midfielder in a 4-3-3 for Costa Rica (sort of an odd fit for his game), and he completed 4/7 passes and made one interception in the contest.

Costa Rica took just two points from the window, but that’s enough to sit fifth in the table, three points out of the all-important fourth position.

Defender Walker Zimmerman

On international duty with the United States

For the third straight game, Zimmerman was an unused sub on the bench for the United States. The USMNT beat Honduras 4-1 to finish the window on a positive note (a sorely needed one).

The Americans sit tied for second in the table with Canada onn five points.

Winger David Accam

On loan to Hammarby IF in Sweden

Accam was not in the squad for Hammarby’s 4-1 loss to Djurgåden in league play. The loss dropped the team to sixth in the Allsvenskan table.

Midfielder Irakoze Donasiyano

On loan to OKC Energy FC in USL Championship

Donasiyano was not in the squad as Oklahoma City drew Louisville City FC 1-1 on Sunday.

Defender Tom Judge

On loan to Pittsburgh Riverhounds in USL Championship

Judge entered as an 86th-minute substitute in Pittsburgh Riverhounds’ 5-0 win over Loudoun United. He completed all three of his passes and his only duel in his brief time on the pitch, and was also fouled once.

Up next: Pittsburgh Riverhounds @ Charlotte Independence • 6:00 p.m. CDT Saturday (ESPN+)

Defender Miguel Nazarit

On loan to Independiente Santa Fe in Colombia

Santa Fe drew Atlético Nacional in a two-legged Copa Colombiana series before falling on penalties. Nazarit did not feature in either match.

However, he made his return to the Santa Fe lineup in league play, starting and going 90 as a centerback in the club’s 1-1 draw against Alianza Petrolera. The club sits 11th in the Liga BetPlay table at this stage.

Up next: Independiente Santa Fe v. Deportivo Pasto in Categoria Primera A • 6:05 p.m. CDT Sunday

Defender Nick Hinds and goalkeeper Elliot Panicco

On season-long loans to Austin Bold FC in USL Championship. Nashville has right of recall if necessary.

Hinds remains out of the lineup, but Panicco started and went 90 in Austin Bold’s 1-0 win against New Mexico United. He made two saves and completed 9/24 passes (with Austin almost exclusively playing long).

Up next: Austin Bold v. FC Tulsa • 7 p.m. CDT Saturday (ESPN+)
