Sheffield United FC, the Premier League, and the Championship will take a break from domestic football this weekend due to an international break. United will see eight players partake in their national teams’ fixtures respectively.

The Blades will return to action next Saturday, 25th November, when they will host AFC Bournemouth at Bramall Lane in what will prove a vital match as United aim to climb out of the bottom three relegation spots.

Blades boss Paul Heckingbottom will be hoping that all his players return from duty unscathed by injury as they head into a pivotal period of the season.

Right Wing-Back George Baldock is one of several players who will represent his country over the forthcoming days. He will team up with Gus Poyet’s Greece side as they host New Zealand in a friendly, before hosting France in a vital Euro 2024 qualifier – both played in Athens.

Fellow defender Yaser Larouci will be looking to make his full debut for Algeria when they face Somalia at home, followed by an away fixture in Mozambique in their 2026 World Cup qualifiers. The next FIFA World Cup (2026) will be jointly hosted by the USA, Canada, and Mexico. On-loan Manchester City midfielder, James McAtee, will represent the England U21s as they face Northern Ireland at Goodison Park (Everton), before travelling to Serria.

Centre-Half, Auston Trusty has been called up by the United States on standby for their double fixture against Trinidad & Tobago.

Meanwhile, Bénie Traore (pictured) will be part of the Ivory Coast U23s squad to face Morocco and Iraq and Will Osula has been called up to the Danish U21s side who face Morocco and Wales respectively.

From the Academy, Ryan Oné (Scotland U19), and Oliver Arblaster (England U20), have both been called up for their respective associations.

As for the Three Lions, England will face Malta on 17th November, and North Macedonia three days later on 20th November. Former Sheffield United players; Aaron Ramsdale (Arsenal), Kyle Walker (Manchester City), and Harry Maguire (Manchester United), have all been called up to Gareth Southgate’s squad.
