Robins on international duty

Nine City players are expected to be in action over the coming fortnight after being called up to play for their countries.

Wales manager Ryan Giggs has called upon defender Ashley Williams (pictured above) and Joe Morrell after the midfielder impressed on his Wales debut last month.

Famara Diédhiou has been recalled to the Senegal squad too, who face a mouth-watering friendly with Brazil in Singapore.

Club captain Bailey Wright has been recalled by Australia

Han-Noah Massengo’s impressive start to life in English football has earned him a call-up to France Under-19s' setup and City captain Bailey Wright will travel with Australia as they continue their World Cup qualification campaign.

Midfielders Ádám Nagy and Callum O’Dowda also look set to feature for Hungary and Republic of Ireland respectively though a collection of yellow cards means Nagy is suspended for the first game against Croatia.

Pedro Pereira has joined up with Portugal Under-21s as they meet Netherlands Under-21s and Academy player Sam Pearson has been named in Rob Page’s Wales Under-19s squad. Barney Soady has had to withdraw because of a knee injury.
