It's not just our England boys in international action this week!

Michael Dawson will be hoping to win his first senior England cap in a friendly with Mexico at Wembley tonight.

He is joined in the squad by Ledley King, Aaron Lennon, Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe and Tom Huddlestone, with all six looking to book their places in Fabio Capello's final 23-man World Cup squad.

But there are a host of other international friendlies for our players either heading to South Africa or already looking ahead to their regional championship qualification campaigns.

Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Sebastien Bassong are both in Cameroon's provisional World Cup squad, so they will be looking to impress coach Paul Le Guen in a friendly with Georgia on Tuesday.

It's set to be Honduras' first Finals in nearly 30 years and Wilson Palacios looks set to be one of their key figures. They gear up with a trip to Belgium on Thursday.

And Giovani Dos Santos' Mexico have given themselves a busy schedule in the build up to June 11 with Holland next up on Wednesday after England tonight.

Elsewhere, Luka Modric and Croatia will not be in South Africa, but they've been compensating with a series of friendlies. It's two wins from two so far after Austria and Wales were beaten, and a trip to Estonia on Wednesday will round off their summer schedule.

Robbie Keane and the Republic of Ireland are also already looking ahead to Euro 2012 qualification, and they have friendlies with Paraguay and Algeria this week.

Our young internationals are also in action. John Bostock, Dean Parrett, Andros Townsend and Steven Caulker are all in the England Under-19 squad that travels to Ukraine this week for the European Championship Elite Qualifying Round.
