David De Gea will be hoping to help Spain in their Euro qualifiers, with games against Romania and the Faroe Islands coming up, and Victor Lindelof is back in Sweden’s squad for their upcoming games against the Faroe Islands and Norway.

United legend Ryan Giggs has picked two Reds in his Wales squad for their games against Azerbaijan and Belarus, with Daniel James and Dylan Levitt called-up, the latter could be in line for his senior international debut.

Meanwhile, Angel Gomes has moved up to the England U20s, while Mason Greenwood has been called-up to the U21 squad. Similarly, Tahith Chong, who made his debut for the U21s in a defeat to Germany last November, could feature once again for Netherland’s U21 side.
