International Blues: Who Will Be Playing And Where

The international break sees a number of Everton players head around the globe to link up with their respective national teams.

Kicking off the fixtures are Jordan Pickford and Michael Keane, who will hope to play their part in England’s World Cup qualifier against Slovenia at Wembley on Thursday 5 October.

Youngsters Harry Charsley (Ireland), Nathan Broadhead (Wales) and Nikola Vlasic (Croatia) are all in Under-21s action that same day.

On Friday, Ashley Williams and James McCarthy are with Wales and Ireland respectively as the two nations look to take big steps towards qualifying for Russia against Georgia and Moldova respectively. Wales and Ireland then face each other in Cardiff on Monday night.

Gylfi Sigurdsson faces a trip to Turkey with Iceland, plus the young quintet of Tom Davies, Ademola Lookman, Kieran Dowell, Jonjoe Kenny and Dominic Calvert-Lewin could all feature for England Under-21s against Scotland. 

Dutch duo Maarten Stekelenburg and Davy Klaassen are in Belarus on Saturday and they are joined in World Cup qualifying action by Muhamed Besic and Kevin Mirallas, who go head-to-head in Bosnia.

Henry Onyekuru has been named on the standby list for Nigeria ahead of their game with Zambia, but Idrissa Gana Gueye is preparing to face Cape Verde with Senegal.

England are back in action on Sunday, with a trip to Lithuania, while Lewis Gibson will hope to feature as the Three Lions’ Under-17s kick off their World Cup campaign against Chile.

Then, next week, Cuco Martina heads to Doha to captain Curacao in their friendly against Qatar.
