Newcastle United internationals start with a win as Miguel Almiron prepares for Aleksandar Mitrovic

2 years ago

Seven Newcastle United players on international duty this time.

NUFC Under 23 midfielder Mo Sangare kicking things off with his fifth appearance for the Liberia senior team on Wednesday.

Sangare playing the first 56 minutes of a 1-0 African Nations Cup qualifier win over Chad.

Thursday night sees two Newcastle players set for action.

Martin Dubravka and Slovakia travel to Wales for a key European Championships qualifier.

Whilst an interesting contest in prospect as Aleksandar Mitrovic and Serbia, host Miguel Almiron and Paraguay.

Looking further ahead, it appears that Christian Atsu won’t be available for the Chelsea game, as Ghana have an African Nations Cup qualifier less than 48 hours before that Premier League match.
