International call-ups

Six FC players on duty

After the win against SC Freiburg, the FC players will now head into the international break. Six FC first-teamers have been called up by their respective nations for the upcoming international fixtures.

Jonas Hector is a part of Joachim Löw’s 23-man squad as Germany look to overtake Northern Ireland at the top of Group C. That will begin with a crunch clash against the Netherlands on Friday, before they travel to Windsor Park on Monday and hope to be the first team to take points from Michael O’Neill’s men in the group stage.

Florian Kainz is underway with Austria again, as they aim to break into the top two in their group. They take on Latvia (6th September, Salzburg), before an important meeting away in Warsaw against Poland (9th September).

After his stunning showing in Freiburg, Ellyes Skhiri will make his way back to his homeland this week. Tunisia take on Mauritania on Friday evening, and then make their way to France to face Ivory Coast in another friendly meeting on Tuesday.

For Sebastiaan Bornauw and Belgium, it’s also about European qualifiers. They travel to Wales on Friday evening to kick-start their campaign. Belgium will then head to Leuven and take on top of the table Bosnia and Herzegovina, in what will prove to be a very competitive group – Germany are also a part of Group 9.

Noah Katterbach will be part of the Germany under-19 squad that travel to Spain for a short training camp, including a friendly against their Spanish counterparts on Wednesday. They can also look forward to a game against England, on Monday, in Haiger.

Fresh from his two goals against Alemannia Aachen at the weekend, Darko Churlinov will also be jetting off this week. He’ll be with the North Macedonia under-21s as they start their European under-21 Championship qualifiers against the Faroe Islands on Tuesday.
