International Rovers

6 October 2015

After Rovers' win at the weekend, the focus returns to international football with key Euro 2016 qualifiers taking place over the next seven days.

Rovers have nine players away on duty for their respective countries from the first team down to Under-19 level.

This Thursday sees Corry Evans, Grant Hanley and Jordan Rhodes involved in qualifiers as Northern Ireland face Greece, whilst Scotland take on Poland.

On Friday Darragh Lenihan is with the Republic of Ireland's Under-21s for their UEFA U21 qualifier against Lithuania, whilst Mark Edgar is with Northern Ireland's Under-19s for the first of two away friendlies against Iceland.

Saturday 10th October sees the Welsh away against Bosnia & Herzegovina, with Tom Lawrence and Adam Henley hoping to be involved.

Then Sunday sees Northern Ireland and Scotland return to action. Evans' Northern Ireland are in Finland, Hanley and Rhodes will look for more game time in their final qualifier as the Scots face Gibraltar. 

Edgar's Northern Ireland's Under-19s also play their second friendly against Iceland.

Academy forward Lewis Mansell has received his first international call-up. The striker, who has ten goals for the Under-18s this season, will link up with the Welsh Under-19s for a three-day training camp from 12th-14th October.

A week today sees Wales bring their qualifying process to a close at home to Andorra, whilst Lenihan's Irish Under-21s have a qualifier against Italy.

But it is Lee Williamson who has the furthest to travel during the break as he links up with Jamaica once more. They have an international friendly against South Korea in Seoul on Tuesday 13th.
