A number of Rovers players have today joined up with their respective countries for games over the international break.

Midfielder Corry Evans has linked up with Northern Ireland, who face Luxembourg in a friendly at Windsor Park on Thursday (September 5th), before hosting Germany in a Euro 2020 qualifier next Monday (September 9th).

Northern Ireland currently have a 100% record in Group C, having beaten both Belarus and Estonia at home and away, and Evans will hope to add to his 53 caps in the Belfast double-header.

Charlie Mulgrew, who is on a season-long loan at Wigan Athletic, is in the Scotland squad for two Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Steve Clarke’s side take on Russia at Hampden Park on Friday (September 6th), before welcoming Belgium to Glasgow three days later.

Scotland have so far won two and lost two of their opening four games in Group I, with Mulgrew expected to add to the 41 caps he has for his country.

Young defender Louie Annesley, who was part of the Rovers Under-23s side that defeated Brighton 5-3 on Friday night, has once again joined up with Gibraltar.

The 19-year-old is in the squad for two Euro 2020 qualifiers – at home to Denmark on Thursday (September 5th) and away to Switzerland on Sunday (September 8th).

Gibraltar find themselves bottom of Group D, having lost their opening three group games.

Rovers defenders Darragh Lenihan, Derrick Williams and Greg Cunningham, who were named in the provisional 40-man Republic of Ireland squad but failed to make the final squad, will be keeping a close eye on events in Group D, as Ireland currently sit top of the table, with 10 points from four games, ahead of their qualifier against Switzerland this Thursday (September 5th).

At Under-21 level, Jack Vale is with Wales for two Euro 2021 qualifiers against Belgium (Friday September 6th) and Germany (Tuesday September 10th), with both games being played at the Racecourse Ground in Wrexham, whilst Lewis Thompson has linked up with Northern Ireland for qualifiers against Malta (home) and Finland (away) on the same dates.

Good luck, lads!
