International Blues

by Mike Taylor
@Everton

Fourteen senior Everton players have been called up by their respective nations for the upcoming round of international fixtures. 

The pick of the games in Europe will see Blues teammates become temporary opponents when Republic of Ireland and Bosnia & Herzegovina go head-to-head over two legs for a place at next year’s Euro 2016 finals in France.

James McCarthy, Seamus Coleman, Darron Gibson and Aiden McGeady have all received the nod from Martin O’Neill, while Muhamed Besic has been included in the Dragons’ squad for the all-important showdown.

There are also competitive games over in the Americas, with Ramiro Funes Mori set to be involved for Argentina as they take on Brazil on home soil before a trip to Colombia for a World Cup 2018 qualifier.

Tim Howard, meanwhile, could also be involved in World Cup preliminaries as USA take on St. Vincent & The Grenadines in St. Louis, ahead of an away outing against Trinidad & Tobago.

Elsewhere, there are friendlies for England’s Ross Barkley and John Stones against Spain and France, plus non-competitive fixtures for Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku and Kevin Mirallas against Italy and Spain.

Gerard Deulofeu will travel with Spain Under-21s for UEFA Euro 2017 qualifiers against Georgia and Croatia, while Brendan Galloway and Tyias Browning could make their first appearances for Gareth Southgate’s Under-21 side when the Young Lions face Bosnia & Herzegovina and Switzerland.

Also in the Under-21 category, Mateusz Hewelt could make his first appearance for Republic of Ireland as he joins Sam Byrne and Harry Charsley for friendly games against Lithuania and Norway.

Mason Holgate and Russell Griffiths have been called up by England Under-20s, while Ryan Ledson, Jonjoe Kenny and Callum Connolly are set to represent England Under-19s.

Finally, defender James Graham, who is currently out on loan with Colwyn Bay, joins striker Nathan Broadhead for Wales Under-19s’ European Qualifying Tournament campaign.
