The return of our international round-up feature can only mean one thing...the season is BACK!

In recent years a host of Leeds United players have represented their countries at some level, which is a much needed change since the days of League One.

For some reason a host of friendlies at full and Under-21 level took place this week before the start of the season. Here's a quick summary of how our boys got on:

Ross McCormack:

McCormack has been very unlucky to be left out of the past few squads in recent months but Ross was called up for the midweek friendly against Australia at Hampden Park. After twelve months away from the Scotland scene, McCormack returned with a bang by getting himself on the scoresheet after coming on as a sub. The United forward reacted well to a mistake before finding space and time to fire the ball past the keeper.

Paul Green:

New signing Green featured for the Republic of Ireland after stepping off the substitutes bench against Serbia. The midfielder played the last 30 minutes in Serbia.

Aidy White:

Aidy played the full 90 minutes in the Republic of Ireland's Under-21 game against Turkey in the Under-21 qualifiers.

Youngsters called up:

Earlier this week two of Leeds' youngsters were called up to represent their countries. Daniel Atkinson who is a goalkeeper has been called up to England's Under-17 squad for the St Georges Park international tournament which starts on Saturday.

Eoghan Stokes has been called up for Ireland's Under-17 game against Azerbaijan.
