Manchester City's Euro 2012 stars were given a testing return to club action as Oldham beat the Barclays Premier League champions 2-1 at Boundary Park.

While the majority of their first-team colleagues concluded a tour of the Far East on Monday, England trio Joe Hart, Joleon Lescott and James Milner enjoyed their first close-season outings alongside France pair Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri.

Holland's Nigel de Jong took the armband and made his second appearance in four days having started Saturday's 2-1 reserve win at Stockport, while the rest of City's line-up was comprised of academy products and Etihad Stadium outcast Roque Santa Cruz.
