International Preview: March 2019

18 March 2019

In the next fortnight, 16 Brentford players across both teams will head out on international duty. 

From Thomas Frank's squad; Kamohelo Mokotjo, Romaine Sawyers, Henrik Dalsgaard, Ezri Konsa, Said Benrahma, Marcus Forss and Ellery Balcombe.

Benrahma is in the Algeria squad to face Gambia and then Tunisia at home later this week. Sawyers will join St Kitts and Nevis for a match against Suriname that could see them qualify for the CONCACAF Nations League as well as the Gold Cup 2019. 

Mokotjo joins South Africa for their game against Libya, an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier. A draw will see them through to the summer's finals in Egypt. Dalsgaard is in the Denmark squad for a friendly against Kosovo and then a Euro 2020 qualifier against Switzerland. The fullback could get himself to 20 caps by playing in both games.

Forss is set for more Finland Under-21 minutes when his side head off to play Norway and Bulgaria. Balcombe will join England's Under-20s for matches against Poland and Portugal as part of the Euro Elite League. 

Lars Friis' team have a few more call-ups in; Fredrik Hammar, Jan Zamburek, Jaakko Oksanen, Canice Carroll, Cole Dasilva, David Titov, Kolbeinn Finnsson, Patrik Gunnarsson and Simon Andersson.

Gunnarsson received his first Iceland U21 call-up alongside Kolbeinn Finnsson this month. David Titov could be in action for Latvia's U21s this week as they prepare for a four-team tournament against Kazakhstan, Macedonia and Ukraine. Oksanen will join Forss in the Finland U21 squad.

Zamburek's Czech Republic U18s are off to Dubai for the Sportchain Cup. They face Belgium, England and Japan in the coming week at Dubai Sports City.

Andersson and Hammar will both attend Sweden's Elite Training Camp in Stockholm but there will be no match action for them this time.
