International break

FC international call-ups

With a two-week break before 1. FC Köln next take to the pitch in a competitive fixture, several players will be absent against Viktoria Köln. With Jonas Hector missing Germany’s games through injury, seven FC players have been called up to their respective nations.

Florian Kainz and Louis Schaub will both be in Franco Foda’s Austria squad as they face crucial EURO 2020 Qualifiers in the week ahead. They welcome Israel to Wien before heading to Slovenia and Ljubljana to take on the second-placed side. Austria are currently a point behind the Slovenians in third.

Ellyes Skhiri has just one game in the international break this time around. After his superb performance against Schalke, his Tunisian side will take on Cameroon at home in Tunis.

Sebastiaan Bornauw will again be in action for the Belgium under-21s. The defender managed to play 90 minutes in both of the previous qualifiers against Wales and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The centre-back will hope to repeat the feat and get his side’s first win to date. Belgium are in the same group as Germany.

Noah Katterbach, fresh from his first professional appearance for FC, will be keen to repeat his strong performance while with the Germany under-19s. They travel to Scotland and will take on Andorra, Belarus and the hosts, Scotland for a place in the next round of qualifying. A place in the top two will assure them of a place in the elite stages.

After their 7:1 win over the Faroe Islands in the first qualifier of the campaign, Darko Churlinov and North Macedonia’s under-21s will face both Montenegro and Kazakhstan. It represents a real chance for them to make a statement in the group, with Spain currently sitting top with two wins from two.

Brady Scott will also be getting off during the break. The American goalkeeper will join up with his under-23 colleagues for a friendly game against El Salvador. That will take place in Miami on Tuesday 15th.
