Newcastle United international diary – Who is playing when

3 years ago

It is (yet another) international break time for Newcastle United.

It is the middle one of three that follow closely on each other, with yet another one to ‘look forward to’ in November.

After a rousing display against Man Utd, Rafa Benitez would surely have fancied having another game to quickly follow.

However, it is still another 11 days until NUFC host Brighton at St James Park.

In the meantime, there are a number of Newcastle players on international duty to watch out for, with details of who plays when below.

Paul Dummett was forced to pull out of the Wales squad through injury, similarly Salomon Rondon ruled out for Venezuela as Newcastle fans wait to find out how long he will be missing.

Whilst Gareth Southgate continues is quest to select every single English player for his squads, before he is forced to consider Jamaal Lascelles and/or Jonjo Shelvey.

Interestingly, of the seven who are listed below on international duty, only two of them (Yedlin and Dubravka) are first team regulars, with Clark, Schar, Woodman, Ki and Atsu all squad players.
