International Preview

See who's off on International duty this summer

27 May 2017

Seven Brentford players will be representing their countries this summer. Here’s when and where they will be involved

Lasse Vibe, Andreas Bjelland, Henrik Dalsgaard:

Denmark vs Germany, International Friendly, Tuesday 6 June, Brondby Stadion, 7.45pm

Kazakhstan vs Denmark, 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier, Saturday 10 June, Central Stadium, Almaty, 5pm

The Bees Danish trio will be hoping to be involved as Åge Hareide’s side take on World Champions Germany on home soil in a friendly before a crucial World Cup Qualifier against Group E’s bottom side. At the half-way stage of qualifying Denmark are third in their group, level on seven points with Montenegro, and six points behind unbeaten group leaders Poland. With the second-placed team going into the two-legged Play-Off, The Danes will be hoping to avoid a slip up in Kazakhstan’s largest city.

John Egan:

Mexico vs Republic of Ireland, International Friendly, Friday 2 June, MetLife Stadium, New Jersey, 1am

Republic of Ireland vs Uruguay, Three International Friendly, Sunday 4 June, Aviva Stadium, 7pm

Republic of Ireland vs Austria, 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier, Sunday 11 June, Aviva Stadium, 5pm

John earned his first full Ireland cap last time out against Iceland at The Aviva Stadium and has again been selected as part of Martin O’Neill’s 37-man squad for three games this June.

The Republic begin with a friendly against Mexico at MetLife Stadium before returning to Dublin for a game against Uruguay less than 72 hours later. A week later and there’s a crucial Group D World Cup Qualifer as Austria head to Dublin. Ireland are currently second, level on points with group leaders Serbia, and four points clear of Wales and Austria. After a memorable win in Vienna back in November, a second win over Austria, on the same night as Wales travel to Serbia, could either leave Ireland top of the group or seven points clear of third with four to play.

Ellery Balcombe:

England Under-20s vs Angola Under-20s, Toulon Tournament, Monday 29 May, Stade de Lattre-de-Tassigny, Aubagne, 6.30pm

England Under-20s vs Cuba Under-20s, Toulon Tournament, Thursday 1 June, Stade d'Honneur Marcel Roustan, Salon-de-Provence, 6.30pm

England Under-20s vs Japan Under-20s, Toulon Tournament, Sunday 4 June, Stade de Lattre-de-Tassigny, Aubagne, 2pm

Defending champions England head back to the south of France to defend their crown with 17-year-old Ellery named as one of two goalkeepers for the prestigious youth tournament. Ellery has earned three caps at Under-18 level, the most recent of them coming against Saudi Arabia in March. The three group winners go through to the semi-finals, alongside the best runner-up.

Chris Mepham:

Wales Under-20s vs France Under-20s, Toulon Tournament, Tuesday 30 May, Stade de Lattre-de-Tassigny, Aubagne, 6.30pm

Wales Under-20s vs Bahrain Under-20s, Toulon Tournament, Friday 2 June, Stade Parsemain, Fos-sur-Mer, 4pm

Wales Under-20s vs Ivory Coast, Toulon Tournament, Monday 5 June, Stade de Lattre-de-Tassigny, Aubagne, 4pm

Brentford B centre-back Chris Mepham was a late injury call-up to the Wales Under-20 squad, as he gets his first taste of international football at the prestigious youth football tournament. 

Lukas Talbro:

Denmark Under-18s vs Greece Under-18s, International Friendly, Thursday 8 June, Slagelse, 5pm

Denmark Under-18s vs Greece Under-18s, International Friendly, Sunday 11 June, Herfølge, 2pm

Brentford B right-back Lukas has a chance to earn his second cap for Denmark’s Under-18s after making his debut in a 1-1 draw against Belarus last October. Lukas, who made 36 apperances for Kevin O’Connor’s side has previously been capped at Under-16 level.
