Viktor Gyökeres:

Following the withdrawal of striker Zlatan Ibrahimović on Saturday night from the Sweden national team, City striker Viktor Gyökeres was called-up to replace the forward.

Viktor has been in fine-form the Sky Blues this season, scoring nine in eleven games, which alerted the interest of Sweden, who have brought him back into the international fold.

Therefore, Viktor will be available to represent Sweden in both of their World Cup Qualifiying fixtures against Kosovo and Greece in Group B.

Sweden vs Kosovo - Saturday 9th October - 17:00pm K:O.
Sweden vs Greece - Tuesday 12th October - 19:45pm K:O.

Updates on Viktor's progress with the national team will be available on the official club website following the conclusion of his time with the national side.

After scoring his first Championship and Sky Blues goal this past weekend against Fulham, Maatsen has gone to link-up with the Netherlands Under-21s.

Maatsen is no stranger to the Under-21s side, having won his first cap with the national side during the last international break during a 3-0 win against Moldova.

The City loanee will be available for both of Netherlands fixtures in their UEFA Under-21 Championship Qualification matches against Switzerland and Wales.

Switzerland U21 vs Netherlands U21 - Friday 8th October - 18:00pm K:O.

Ryan Howley:

City's youngest international call-up falls to midfielder Ryan Howley, who has enjoyed a superb start to his first season as a professional footballer.

Howley signed his first pro contract following his 17th birthday last November and since then he has gone on to enjoy success in the Under-23s, as well as making his first team debut against Northampton Town earlier this season.

The 17-year-old will now go to enjoy his second call-up with the Wales Under-19s, having made his first international appearance for Wales during the last break.

Wales U19 vs Georgia U19 - Wednesday 6th October - 15:00pm K:O.
Norway U19 vs Wales U19 - Saturday 9th October - 12:00pm K:O.

Currently out on loan with Scottish Premier League side Ross County, Jack continues to gain international recognition following his inclusion in the latest Scotland Under-21s side.
