International Bees head off around the world this week

Eight Bees in international action over the coming weeks

28 May 2018

It may be the height of summer but there's no shortage of action for our international Bees over the coming weeks. Here's who is involved, when and where, around the globe.

John Egan and Alan Judge

France vs Republic of Ireland, Stade de France, Paris, Monday 28 May, kick-off 8pm

Republic of Ireland vs USA, Aviva Stadium, Dublin, Saturday 2 June, kick-off 8pm

John Egan and Alan Judge will be looking to add to their two caps each when The Boys in Green take on France and the USA this week. A trip to Paris to take on Didier Deschamps' World Cup bound Les Bleus will provide a tough test before a return to Dublin to take on the USA.

Sweden vs Denmark, Stockholm Olympic Stadium, Stockholm, Saturday 2 June, kick-off 6.45pm

Denmark vs Mexico, Brondby Stadium, Brondby, Saturday 9 June, kick-off 8pm

Places on the plane to Russia are up for grabs as Denmark play their final preparation games ahead of this summer's World Cup. Andreas and Henrik were mainstays in Denmark's qualification campaign and will be looking to cement their spot in Age Hareide's final 23 man squad, which will be named next Monday. 

Chris Mepham

Wales vs Mexico, Rose Bowl, California, Tuesday 29 May, kick-off 2am

After earning his first cap under Ryan Giggs in March, 20-year-old Chris has been called up for the Red Dragons' game against Mexico in the USA. After making his first-team debut in September, Chris has passed test after test with flying colours but will face a tough assignment against a side hoping to have a good run in Russia this summer.
