November internationals: Who's playing when?

Tuesday 14 November 2023 09:03

Some of Manchester United's players will be involved in international action during this break, starting on Thursday.

There will be matches in Europe, Africa and South America likely to feature Reds, with the qualification groups for Euro 2024 coming to an end.

We will be keeping track of it all on and the United App as domestic action pauses until our return to Premier League combat at Everton on 26 November.

Club update on Eriksen and Hojlund


The likely length of absence for our Danish duo has been revealed.


As was the case last month, England boss Gareth Southgate has named Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford in his squad. Both contributed greatly to the win over Italy that clinched qualification so the Three Lions are already assured of a place in the finals, ahead of the games with Malta and North Macedonia.

Scotland have also progressed to Germany, and Scott McTominay will look to continue his brilliant form for Steve Clarke's men, as they take on Georgia and Norway.

Victor Lindelof, goalscoring hero against Luton Town last weekend, is in line to captain Sweden, against Azerbaijan and Estonia, but they are a long way back in third spot in their pool, Group F.

Portugal are still on course to record a flawless group campaign, after winning all their games so far. Bruno Fernandes has been hugely influential over the course of the run and will be striving to finish the job against Liechtenstein and Iceland. However, Diogo Dalot has pulled out, following discussions with coach Roberto Martinez, due to personal reasons.

Turkey will be confident of winning Group D, as they tackle second-placed Wales next Tuesday, after a friendly against Germany. Altay Bayindir and his team-mates are currently six points clear, and playing under new manager Vincenzo Montella.

Jonny Evans (Northern Ireland), Christian Eriksen and Rasmus Hojlund (both Denmark) have been forced to withdraw from international duty due to injury.


Sofyan Amrabat now only has one game to contend with, after Morocco's clash with Eritrea was cancelled, when the opponents withdrew from World Cup qualifying. It means the Atlas Lions will just be meeting Tanzania in Dar Es Salam next Tuesday.

Cameroon coach Rigobert Song has named Andre Onana as one of three keepers in his squad, as they also look to win their group in order to clinch automatic qualification for Canada, Mexico and the United States in 2026. Cameroon face Mauritius and Libya.


Our only representative in this section, this time around, is Uruguay winger Facundo Pellistri, who made a great contribution to our recent late win at Fulham.

Pellistri's national-team coach, Marcelo Bielsa, will be plotting to upset his native Argentina, in the much-loved Bombonera, before a home clash with Bolivia, as the World Cup trail continues.
