Clarets' International Dates

14 November 2018

Six Clarets could potentially be in action during the international break.

Full details on when and where the internationals will be playing are outlined below:

Robbie Brady, Jeff Hendrick and Kevin Long have all joined up with Ireland, ahead of their two games against Northern Ireland and Denmark.

Stephen Ward is currently sidelined following knee surgery while Jimmy Dunne, who joined the squad in training earlier this week for the first time following an impressive loan spell at Scottish Premier League Hearts, has now left the squad.

Ireland play against the North in Dublin on Thursday, November 15 and then face the Danes in Aarhus on Monday, 19 November as they seek a first win in the Nations League that would keep alive their slim hope of avoiding relegation.

Striker Sam Vokes again links up with Wales for their decisive Nations League tie against Denmark in Cardiff on Friday, November 16 – where a win will see them promoted to League A - followed by a friendly in Albania on Tuesday, November 17.

Matej Vydra, meanwhile, will link up with the Czech Republic for their friendly in Poland on Thursday, November 15, followed by a Nations League match in Slovakia on Monday, November 19, where they must draw to avoid relegation to League C.

Finally, in a late withdrawal, Johann Berg Gudundsson did not travel with already-relegated Iceland to Belgium for theie Nations League game on Thursday, November 15, followed by a friendly in Qatar on Monday, November 19.
