| Who is on their way to the World Cup? And who is flying out to Costa Rica? We take a look at which #LUFC players have been called up by their national teams this summer— Leeds United (@LUFC) May 19, 2018
Pontus Jansson is going to Russia with Sweden. Both Stuart Dallas and Bailey Peacock-Farrell were called up to take part in some of Northern Ireland’s friendlies, and Eunan O’Kane has been called up to the Republic of Ireland’s squad that will play France and the United States.
Yosuke Ideguchi, who has spent the past few months on loan with Cultural Leonesa in Spain, has been named to the preliminary Japan squad for the World Cup.
Tom Pearce will join the England U21 team that will travel to the Toulon Tournament, with Ronaldo Vieira on standby. Vieira starred in the tournament, as England successfully defended their title last season.
Hope everyone’s travels are successful.
