Four more Crystal Palace players have been called up to represent their countries next week.

Mile Jedinak, Marouane Chamakh, Damien Delaney and Kagisho Dikgacoi have all been named in their respective nation's squads, taking the total number of Eagles internationals to 12.

Their inclusions come after Wayne Hennessey, Danny Gabbidon, Joe Ledley, Jonny Williams, Barry Bannan, Jonny Parr, Adrian Mariappa and Adlene Guedioura all received call-ups earlier this week, as previously reported here on  

Palace captain Mile Jedinak (pictured above) heads up the latest quartet, as the midfielder gets set to join up with the Australia squad for a friendly against Ecuador at Millwall's home, The Den.

The Socceroos take on their fellow World Cup qualifiers as a warm-up for this summer's showpiece in Brazil, where the Aussies come up against World Cup holders Spain, the Netherlands and Chile in a tough group. 

Marouane Chamakh has been recalled to the Moroccan set-up for their game against Gabon, having not played for his country since January 2012.
