When are our international players in action?
There are 12 Manchester United players who have left the Aon Training Complex to represent their countries during the final international break of 2018.
Our international Reds will be involved in a mixture of UEFA Nations League matches, Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers and friendly games over the next 10 days. Here's our guide to who has been called up and when they could be in action...
ARGENTINA: Goalkeeper Sergio Romero is the only United player to be called up to Lionel Scaloni’s squad, with defender Marcos Rojo absent again as he continues his recovery from injury. The South American nation face Mexico twice in the space of four days, in two friendly games on home soil during the break.
BELGIUM: Marouane Fellaini hasn't been named in the Belgium squad and Romelu Lukaku was included but has been ruled out of their first UEFA Nations League match at home to Iceland on 15 November through injury, the Belgian FA has been confirmed. The striker, who returned after three games out injured as a sub in United's 3-1 defeat against City, will be hoping to be involved away to Switzerland on 18 November.

CHILE: Alexis Sanchez has been named in the Chile squad for their friendly matches against Costa Rica in Rancagua on 17 November and Honduras in Temuco four days later.
ECUADOR: Antonio Valencia will be hoping to add to his 92 caps when Ecuador travel to Peru on Friday, 16 November, and Panama next Wednesday, 21 November, for friendly matches. The Reds captain has missed the last seven United games through injury and will hope to use the break to continue to step up his fitness.
ENGLAND: Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw have been named in Gareth Southgate's latest Three Lions squad, to face the United States of America in a friendly and Croatia in the UEFA Nations League. Rashford has scored in three of his last four appearances for his country, while Lingard missed out on a call-up last month due to injury. England will face the USA at Wembley in the 'Wayne Rooney Foundation International' - a game to commemorate the former Reds striker's record-breaking international career. Southgate's side will then take on Croatia in a crucial clash which could decide their fate in Group A4 of the UEFA Nations League.
FRANCE: Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial were both called up by Didier Deschamps for the world champions' upcoming games against the Netherlands and Uruguay but the pair have been forced to withdraw from the squad through injury. Les Bleus travel to Rotterdam for their final UEFA Nations League game against Ronald Koeman's Dutch team on Friday, before hosting Uruguay in a friendly in Paris four days later.
IVORY COAST: Eric Bailly has been selected in the Ivory Coast squad for their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Guinea on Sunday. Les Elephants, who are second in Group H, could secure their place in next year's tournament with a victory, having gained seven points from their four games so far. The defender netted his first international goal last month in a 4-0 victory over Central African Republic.
SCOTLAND: Scott McTominay received a late call-up to Alex McLeish's squad for their important UEFA Nations League matches, away to Albania on Saturday and home to Israel next Tuesday (20 November). The midfielder wasn't named in the original 23-man squad but was drafted in after four players were forced to withdraw through injury last weekend.
SERBIA: Nemanja Matic returns to the Serbia squad for their UEFA Nations League double-header at home to Montenegro and Lithuania, after missing last month's internationals through injury. Mladen Krstajic’s side are unbeaten in Group C4 and sit top after two wins and two draws from their four matches so far.
SPAIN: David De Gea will be hoping to add to 17 clean sheets from his 37 caps to date in Spain's upcoming games against Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. A win for Luis Enrique's men over Croatia in their final UEFA Nations League game will ensure they top the group, before facing Bosnia in a friendly in Las Palmas three days later.
SWEDEN: Victor Lindelof has once again been included in the Sweden squad for their final two UEFA Nations League group matches, away to Turkey on Saturday and home to Russia next Tuesday (20 November).
