Five Jambos are jetting off on international duty this week, read on to find out where they’re going…
KYE ROWLES: AUSTRALIA
There’s no crossing the globe on this occasion as Kye Rowles makes the short journey down to London. The Socceroos have two mouth-watering friendlies pencilled in for their camp in the English capital.
First up is a test against Gareth Southgate’s England on Friday 13 October in a 7:45pm kick-off at Wembley Stadium. Four days later, the Aussies make a short switch across London to Brentford’s Gtech Community Stadium – where a clash with Trans-Tasman rivals New Zealand lies in wait.
Tuesday’s friendly with the All Whites will be the 67th meeting between the sides with Australia enjoying an excellent win record; 42 wins to New Zealand’s 13 with 11 draws in-between.
Kye currently sits on 11 caps for the Socceroos.
ZANDER CLARK: SCOTLAND
Scotland are closing in on qualification for Euro 2024 and Zander Clark has been selected for the Scotland squad.
Steve Clarke’s men need just two more points from Group A to seal a place at next summer’s finals in Germany. One more win, from a 100% record in the campaign so far, would do just that. Albeit there’s a rather large challenge in the way…
The Scots take on second-placed Spain in the Estadio La Cartuja in Seville (Thursday 12 October ,7.45pm kick-off). Scotland have already gotten the better of Spain once this campaign and, with a large prize on the line, it could be a thrilling night in Andalusia.
A trip to France then follows, where Scotland lock horns with the French in a friendly match at the Stade Pierre Mauroy in Lille. (Tuesday 17 October, 7.45pm)
Zander still waits for his first Scotland cap.
ALEX LOWRY & LEWIS NEILSON: SCOTLAND UNDER-21S
Alex Lowry & Lewis Neilson have been called up to Scot Gemmill’s Under-21s team for an upcoming home double header against Hungary and Malta in Euro 2025 qualifying action.
Scotland face Hungary on Friday, 13 October before taking on Malta four days later - with both matches being held at Motherwell’s Fir Park stadium.
The Young Scots began their Euro 2025 qualifying campaign with a narrow defeat to Spain.
Alex has one cap for the Young Scots, whilst Lewis has two.
KENNETH VARGAS: COSTA RICA
Finally, Kenneth Vargas will look to add to his one senior Costa Rica cap after being called up to the Los Ticos squad for a double-header against Colombia.
The forward jets back to Central America for the double bill against the Colombians – playing first on the 14th October and again on the 17th.
