A host of Southampton players will be away representing their countries during the international break.

Ryan Bertrand has been named in Gareth Southgate's England squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifying fixtures against Malta and Slovakia.

There could well be a clash of two Saints players over the break, as Dušan Tadić and Serbia are billed to play Shane Long and the Republic of Ireland in a top-of-the-group World Cup qualifier.

Before that fixture, however, both sides must face the bottom two teams in Group D. With Serbia hosting Moldova and Ireland travelling to Georgia.

Steven Davis and Northern Ireland are also set to play qualifying fixtures against San Marino before a crucial clash with Czech Republic, whilst Cedric and Portugal face the Faroe Islands and Hungary in the same competition.

Maya Yoshida, Manolo Gabbiadini and Wesley Hoedt will also represent Japan, Italy and Holland respectively in their World Cup qualifiers over the break.

Elsewhere, Jan Bednarek will represent Poland's senior squad for the first time, as they visit Denmark and host Kazakhstan in a pair of World Cup qualifiers.

Cédric has also been called up by Portugal, as they tackle Faroe Islands and Hungary in a pair of qualifiers, whilst Jake Vokins has received his first call-up into the England Under-18s squad ahead of their games with Brazil and South Africa.
