Helping Chile to continue their World Cup qualification revival on Thursday night, flying to Madrid with his new amigos Arturo Vidal and Alexis Sanchez in the early hours of Friday morning and playing the final third of Blackburn Rovers 2-2 draw with Coventry City on Saturday afternoon.
It was a whirlwind period for Ben Brereton and you could forgive the striker for being physically and emotionally drained having participated in two matches at venues 7,000 miles apart in little under 36 hours.
After notching in Chile's third in 3-0 triumph over Venezuela, Brereton later boarded a chartered flight to Madrid with European-based team-mates before taking a private flight to Manchester Airport that landed late on Friday night.
Although Chile is no longer a red list country, La Roja did visit Peru on October 8 and therefore Brereton must commence a bespoke 10-day quarantine period, which started once he arrived back in the UK.
At the start of the month, the UK government announced players that are fully-vaccinated are permitted to see out their 10-day isolation in segregated accommodation, of which they're allowed to leave once a day to train or play matches.
It means Brereton is eligible to play in fixtures but the logistics of getting him to various destinations can be a challenge - players must travel individually in a 'Covid-secure' bubble - especially when there is an away fixture against QPR in the mix.
So while the 22-year-old was allowed to play in Saturday's fixture against Coventry, there was doubt over the timings of Brereton's return but given the expense of organising his travel, there was always the underlying feeling that the forward could feature one way or another against Mark Robins' outfit.
And the Chilean sensation nearly produced the match-winner, attempting to tee up Ian Poveda in the penalty area before seeing a late effort expertly saved by Simon Moore and Mowbray feels the work undertaken to ensure Brereton's involvement has been worth every penny.
"He played less than 36 hours ago and he spent at least 12 hours in the air," said Mowbray. "We've had to rent him private accommodation and put him in private cars with security.
"It's a big operation and yet we decided that's what we were going to do. That will continue for the next 10 days.
"It's going to be a bit of a trek to get him to London for QPR on Tuesday.
"He nearly came off the bench and scored the winner so that fairy tale story that Ben's been living might have continued.
"But what I know about him is that he's worth the effort. He's a great kid desperate to do well for his team-mates, the club and himself of course. He deserves all the accolades he gets at the moment."
