It’s international break time everyone, so that means that Leeds players will be off seeking glory for their country, as important World Cup Qualifying matches are coming up later this week over the weekend.

Good luck to the four players set for senior appearances; Liam Cooper for Scotland, Gjanni Alioski for Macedonia, Eunan O’Kane for Republic of Ireland, and Stuart Dallas for Northern Ireland. In addition to those four, three Leeds players will join up with youth squads, with Conor Shaughnessy joining the Republic of Irelands U21 team, Oliver Sarkic, who is on loan from Benfica, will link up with the Montenegro U21s, and Jay-Roy Grot is part of the Netherlands U20 side.

Good luck everyone!
