2 weeks ago

A number of Newcastle United players on international duty this time.

Added worries with the virus situation, members of the NUFC squad flying all over the world and spending a significant amount of time at close quarters with international teammates from numerous countries and clubs.

Then there will be yet another international break coming up after Newcastle play at Southampton, currently scheduled for Saturday 7 November.

There looks to be six Newcastle United players in total involved with their countries but we are yet to hear whether Fabian Schar is ok after that blow to the shoulder, the same one he’d had an operation on and had just come back from.

This schedule of internationals involves massive games for Fraser, Lewis and Hendrick.

They all have 2020 European Championships play-off matches and if any or all of them win on Thursday, they will play one-off play-off final games in the next international break (November) for a place at the finals.
