Busy September Schedule For Foxes Internationals

The latest international window will see several Leicester City players in action across various levels over the next two weeks.

- Nineteen Leicester City stars could be involved in international matches in September
- Thirteen first team players selected to represent their countries this month
- Several youngsters also in contention to play for their nations' youth sides

Youri Tielemans, Timothy Castagne and Wout Faes have all been named in Roberto Martínez's Belgium squad for UEFA Nations League fixtures versus Wales and the Netherlands.

Kicking off against the Dragons on Thursday 22 September (7:45pm kick-off), the trio could come up against team-mate Danny Ward, who has also been selected by his nation for the fixture at King Baudouin Stadium.

The Red Devils then travel to Holland for a match-up with the Dutch on Sunday 25 September to conclude the League A Group 4 campaign, while Ward's Wales host Poland in Cardiff on the same night (both 7:45pm kick-offs).  

Belgium are currently second in the table, on seven points from four games, and three points behind the Netherlands, with Wales fourth, on one point.

Youri Tielemans was on the scoresheet the last time Belgium met Wales, in Cardiff earlier this year.

A double header also awaits for Jonny Evans and Northern Ireland, who meet Kosovo at Windsor Park on Saturday 24 September (5pm kick-off), before taking on Greece in Athens the following Tuesday (7:45pm kick-off). 

As it stands, the Green & White Army sit third in League C Group 2, on two points, with opponents Kosovo (second) and Greece (first) on six and 12 points respectively. 

Turkey centre-back Çağlar Söyüncü, on the other hand, is another Leicester City representative in the Nations League. After entertaining Luxembourg at Başakşehir Fatih Terim Stadium on Thursday 24 September, the Crescent-Stars are set to travel to face Faroe Islands in Tórshavn on Sunday (both 7:45pm kick-offs).

City's No.4 and his international team-mates top League C Group 1 ahead of the final two matchdays, having won all four games without conceding a single goal. At least a draw against Luxembourg would confirm first place in their pool.

In Africa, meanwhile, Patson Daka and Zambia tackle Mali in a double header friendly fixture on Friday 23 September and again three days later. Both are 8pm kick-offs at Stade du 26 Mars in Bamako. 

Also set to be in action on Friday is Daniel Amartey as Ghana play Brazil at Stade Océane in an international friendly at 7:30pm, ahead of the Black Stars taking on Nicaragua at Estadio Francisco Artés Carrasco in Spain on Tuesday 27 September. 

There could be minutes for Papy Mendy, too, when Senegal tackle Bolivia at Stade de la Source in France on Saturday 24 September (6pm kick-off), before Iran are the CAF Africa Cup of Nations champions' next friendly opponents the following Tuesday.  

Elsewhere, Nigerian pair Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi are in the squad for a fixture away to Algeria on Tuesday 27 September (8pm kick-off).
