Eagles Set For International Duty

29 August 2017

A number of Palace players will be away during the international break representing their country and two will be in contention for places in Chris Coleman’s Wales starting eleven in their World Cup qualifiers.

Wayne Hennessey and Jonny Williams are both named in the Wales squad to play Austria at the Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday 2nd September before facing Moldova three days later.

Wales are four points behind both Republic of Ireland and group leaders Serbia and are currently third in Group D.

Luka Milivojevic has a couple of games to look forward to as Serbia hope to maintain their good start in the same group as Wales. A home game against Moldova kicks-off their World Cup weekend and they then travel over to Dublin, coming up against Republic of Ireland next Tuesday.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah receives his first call up to the Holland senior squad by Dick Advocaat.

He was originally selected for the Under 21s but gets a call up from Advocaat due to an injury doubt over Kenny Tete.

Netherlands meet France on the final day of this month before their second World Cup qualifier is against Bulgaria three days later. 

Christian Benteke has joined up with the Belgian squad, preparing for a World Cup qualifier against Gibraltar, followed by an away match in Greece.

With a four-point lead over Greece, Group H leaders Belgium are well placed to qualify for the finals in Russia next summer.

Gordon Strachan has named James McArthur in his Scotland squad for the World Cup qualifying double-header against Lithuania and Malta. 

They face a trip to Lithuania on Friday evening followed by a home game against Malta on Monday 4th September in Glasgow.  

Jeffery Schlupp has returned to the Ghana squad ahead of their World Cup qualifier against Congo.

They play on Friday of this week at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi, going into the game with a point from two matches in the group following a draw with Uganda in Tamale and a 2-0 defeat to Egypt in Alexandria.
