As usual we have loads of Arsenal players out on international duty during the interlull, and there are ten of them with the senior sides and many more off with the younger squads. So who will you be watching on TV tonight?
Probably the most watched will be the Holland v England game which will have not have Jack Wilshere in the team but he should be okay to play Italy on Tuesday. Danny Welbeck is also in the squad and may make an appearance as Harry Kane is out injured.
Laurent Koscielny will be with the France squad for their friendly against Colombia in Paris tonight and we are likely to see him and David Ospina on the pitch.
The Armenian Player Of the Year Henrikh Mkhitaryan will definitely be playing against Estonia tomorrow, and Mesut Ozil is nailed on to face Spain with the German team this evening.
Meanwhile Granit Xhaka’s Switzerland are travelling to Greece and Sead Kolasinac has been named in Bosnia and Herzegovina’s squad for their friendly against Bulgaria. Alex Iwobi will be in action as Nigeria visit Poland and Mohamed Elneny has been called up to Egypt’s squad for their match against Portugal tonight which is actually being played in Zurich.
I think I will be watching the Holland v England game as Gareth Southgates side is unbeaten in their last six but haven’t beaten Holland since 1996. Germany v Spain could be juicy too, but to be honest I find these international friendlies an unwanted distraction at a crucial time in the Premier League…
