Confirmed: Every Man City Player Called-Up for International Duty

With the second international break of the season coming up, there will be plenty of Manchester City stars in action for their countries, and here is a comprehensive round-up of all the players jetting off in the coming days!

Manchester City fans are used to seeing most of the club's senior players jetting off to represent their national teams by now, and this international break is set to be no different. 

Pep Guardiola's players have been in relentless action since the start of the season, which has led to periods out injured for the likes of Kevin de Bruyne, Phil Foden and John Stones among others. 

That isn't going to change any time soon, with Manchester City players once again in high demand among their international managers.

Here's a comprehensive round-up of everyone in Manchester City's first-team squad who has been called up for the next batch of international games!

All five English Manchester City players have received the call from Gareth Southgate once again.

John Stones, Kyle Walker, Jack Grealish, and Raheem Sterling are all regulars in the Three Lions' starting XI, while Phil Foden returns to the squad after an injury.

Ahead of them are two World Cup qualifiers against Andorra and Hungary.


Another country with multiple Manchester City stars in action is Spain, who have called up Rodrigo, Aymeric Laporte and Ferran Torres once again for a UEFA Nations League semi-final against Italy.

All three players have been in constant use for Manchester City this season, and their respective schedules are showing no signs of slowing down as we enter the international break.


The other Nations League semi-final is France vs Belgium, and the latter have called up Kevin de Bruyne - as expected - to play in the match.

The final of the UEFA Nations League is currently pencilled in for October 10th, so a face-off between Kevin De Bruyne and Manchester City's Spanish lads isn't out of the question.


Meanwhile, Portugal have called up three more Manchester City players who have started the season on fire for the Premier League champions - Ruben Dias and Joao Cancelo in defence, as well as midfielder Bernardo Silva.

They play Qatar in an international friendly, and Luxembourg in a World Cup qualifier; two games A Seleção will be expected to win.
