Saturday's seven Premier League games saw 13 goals scored.

From those 13 goals, 12 separate goalscorers for 12 different nationalities scored. Stoke City's Xherdan Shaqiri scored twice in their team's win over Hull City.

New Zealand, Nigeria, Japan, Austria, France, Switzerland, Wales, Canada, DR Congo, Senegal, Brazil and Northern Ireland all had goalscorers in Saturday's games. There were none from England.

While the Premier League continues to pride itself as one of the best in the world, it's ever-increasing global presence has failed to help the English national team.

57 English players started Saturday's Premier League games from 154 players. That's just over a 37% inclusion rate.

In the top 18 Premier League goalscorers this season, six are English, with only four of those being full internationals. West Ham's Michail Antonio and Southampton's Charlie Austin have yet to play for England.

Saturday is a very small sample size, but it will be fascinating to see if an English player scores in the remaining three games of the weekend on Sunday and Monday.

The Premier League's chasing of the pound, may be one of the reasons the national team continues to struggle.
