INTERNATIONAL ROUND-UP: Four stars in action during September break

There were five Sky Blues stars away on international duty over the past ten days...

28 September 2022

The September International Break has come to an end for Coventry City’s international stars.

Viktor Gyokeres ends the break counting more minutes that any of his teammates, having amassed an impressive 84 for Sweden at senior level.

The striker led the line for his nation against Serbia last week and came off the bench on Tuesday night in their draw with Slovakia.

He traded places in a competitive Sweden group with Al-Ettifaq forward Robin Quaison, while playing and training alongside such stars as Dejan Kulusevski (Tottenham Hotspur) and Victor Lindelof (Manchester United).

Elsewhere, Ryan Howley and Cian Tyler both made their debuts for Matthew Jones’ new-look Wales U21 side.

Both were named on the bench during the 2-0 defeat away against Austria in Vienna, with Cian coming on in goal at half-time before Ryan Howley was also introduced.

It was a dream-come-true break for Josh Reid, meanwhile, who made his debut for Scotland U21 on Sunday night.

The City youngster started for Scott Gemmil’s side as they drew 1-1 with Northern Ireland, shortly after landing a late call-up.

Elsewhere, defender Callum Doyle was back in action for England on Tuesday night, this time at U20 level.

The Manchester City loanee, who helped his country to glory in the UEFA European Under-19 Championships during the summer, came off the bench to offer 30 minutes of his services in a 3-0 win over Australia in Spain.

Congratulations to all five players who spent time with their nation sides during the September break.
