International action for seven Hatters this month!

Seven Hatters will be representing their country during the final international break of 2023 over the coming weeks.


One player who will not be going on international duty is Amari’i Bell, who was called up for the Jamaica squad but will remain at home to recover from his ongoing hamstring injury that he picked up against Burnley last month.

Starting at the Under-17 World Cup, Joe Johnson missed out on England’s 10-0 win against New Caledonia before starting today (Tuesday) in the game against IR Iran.

The academy graduate played 76 minutes as the Young Lions came from a goal behind to snatch a 2-1 win in stoppage time, leaving England top of Group C before their final group stage match against Brazil.

Skipper Tom Lockyer has once again been selected for Wales, who have crucial Euro 2024 qualifiers against Armenia and Turkey.

Rob Page’s side currently sit in a qualification spot above Croatia based on head-to-head results and will look to secure qualification in these final two fixtures.

Chieo Ogbene’s Republic of Ireland still have an outside chance of qualifying for Euro 2024 through a play-off based on UEFA Nations League rankings.

The Boys in Green have to face the Netherlands in Amsterdam with a defeat holding more weight for their chances of a play-off than a victory.

Our number seven rounds off the international calendar with a home friendly against New Zealand at Aviva Stadium.

Thomas Kaminski will be hoping to earn his first cap for Belgium across the final two games for the Red Devils this year.

Our goalkeeper has a friendly against Serbia first before their final Euro 2024 qualifier against Azerbaijan.

The final nation with Euro 2024 qualifiers to wrap up the year is Jacob Brown’s Scotland, who already qualified for the tournament last month.

The Scots travel to Georgia before rounding off their successful qualifying campaign with the visit of Norway, who will be without their captain Martin Ødegaard due to injury.

Issa Kaboré’s Burkina Faso will kick off their World Cup 2026 qualifying campaign against Guinea-Bissau and Ethiopia.

This will be Kaboré’s last chance to play for his nation before the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in the Ivory Coast, which starts this January.

Another Hatter starting their 2026 World Cup qualifying campaign is Marvelous Nakamba’s Zimbabwe, who have had an 18-month suspension lifted by FIFA.

Nakamba will be joined by out-on-loan Hatter Admiral Muskwe for World Cup qualifiers against Rwanda and Nigeria.

Another player out on loan that will be on international duty is Dion Pereira for Antigua and Barbuda, who have CONCACAF Nations League games against Puerto Rico and Guyana.

Finally, out-on-loan striker Joe Taylor has also been selected by Wales Under-21s for Euro qualifiers against Iceland and Denmark.
