Three City players have been called-up to International Duty during this current two-week break from league action.

Ian Maatsen

The Sky Blues, Chelsea loanee has been called up to Netherlands Under-21s action for their upcoming UEFA European Under-21 Championship Qualifying matches.

The left-wing-back has made 17 appearances for City this season, scoring one goal against Fulham in a 4-1 win at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

Netherlands have two fixtures during the international break and Maatsen will look to be involved in both qualifiers, starting with Bulgaria on Friday.

Next up is then a trip to Gibraltar, as they host Netherlands on Monday in their final qualifier of 2021.

Friday 12th November – Netherlands U21s vs Bulgaria U21s – 5:45pm KO
Monday 15th November – Gibraltar U21s vs Netherlands U21s – 1:00pm KO

 

Viktor Gyokeres

City’s top goalscorer this season has been called up to the Sweden national team once again, as they look to qualify for the World Cup 2022.

Sweden currently sit top of Group B, two points clear of Spain, who they will play in their final qualifying match.

However, before that, Viktor and Sweden will face a trip to Georgia, where their fate could be sealed if results go their way.

If not, it will go down to a final game shoot-out with Spain, for a place in Qatar 2022, with the other heading for the play-offs

Thursday 11th November – Georgia vs Sweden – 5:00pm KO
Sunday 14th November – Spain vs Sweden – 7:45pm KO

City midfielder Jack Burroughs, who is currently out on loan with Scottish Premiership side, Ross County has been awarded with his second call-up.

Burroughs made his Under-21s debut last month, when he featured in their Under-21s UEFA European Championship Qualifying matches.

This time out, Scotland will entertain both Kazakhstan and Belgium at Dundee’s stadium, as they look to secure their first win of qualifying.

Kazakhstan are first-up, before Belgium travel to Scotland for their second group fixture next week.

Friday 12th November – Scotland U21s vs Kazakhstan U21s – 7:05pm KO
Tuesday 16th November – Scotland U21s vs Belgium U21s – 7:05pm KO
