Jayson Leutwiler is the latest Rovers player to be called up for international duty by his country.

The Canadian goalkeeper has been named in a 22-man squad for a training camp in Murcia, Spain, and international friendly against New Zealand on Saturday March 24th.

The 28-year-old, who has kept three clean sheets in three caps for his country, is the third Rovers player to be named in a national team squad today.

This morning, Charlie Mulgrew was selected in Alex McLeish’s Scotland squad for games against Costa Rica and Hungary, whilst at lunchtime Corry Evans was included in the Northern Ireland squad for a friendly with South Korea.

Last week, defensive duo Darragh Lenihan and Derrick Williams were named in the Republic of Ireland’s provisional 30-man squad for a friendly against Turkey.

Rovers supporters should note that as three players have been called up for international duty, then under EFL Policy, the club is permitted to request postponement of the upcoming League One fixture away to Doncaster Rovers, scheduled for Saturday March 24th.
