The Club has no less than 27 players representing their countries at various levels over the coming week.

The action kicks off on Thursday when Steven Caulker, Kyle Naughton and Danny Rose travel with England U21s to Denmark for a friendly.

Friday sees the first senior international action of the break as Rafael van der Vaart takes on Hungary in Budapest with Holland in a Euro 2012 qualifier.

Paul-Jose M’Poku is also in action that night as Belgium U19s take on their German counterparts in a friendly.

Saturday is the big day of Euro 2012 qualifiers, most notably in Cardiff where six of our players hope to be involved in the clash between Wales and England.

The match could see Gareth Bale line up for the hosts against Spurs team-mates Peter Crouch, Michael Dawson, Jermain Defoe, Aaron Lennon and Kyle Walker.

Also involved in qualifiers that day are our Croatian quartet of Vedran Corluka, Niko Kranjcar, Luka Modric and Stipe Pletikosa, who travel to Georgia.

Roman Pavlyuchenko is in Armenia with Russia, and Robbie Keane is set to captain the Republic of Ireland as they host Macedonia.

There are also Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers that day, with Steven Pienaar in a race to be fit alongside Bongani Khumalo for South Africa’s clash with Egypt.

Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Sebastien Bassong, meanwhile, prepare for a mouth-watering clash in Senegal with Cameroon.

There is also friendly action, as Giovani Dos Santos and Mexico take on Paraguay in Oakland, California on Saturday, followed by a potential meeting between Sandro and Alan Hutton when Brazil take on Scotland at the Emirates on Sunday.

Paul-Jose M’Poku also plays his second U19 friendly that day as Belgium welcome their Ukrainian counterparts.

Into the following week, and the England U21s return home for a friendly with Iceland U21 at Preston North End’s Deepdale.

The remainder of the action comes on the Tuesday, with Tom Carroll, Ryan Fredericks and Harry Kane all preparing to represent England U19 in Holland.

Rafael van der Vaart is the only senior player with a second competitive game to negotiate, as Holland face Hungary at home in an immediate return fixture.

Everyone else is involved in friendlies, with England taking on Ghana at Wembley, Croatia visiting France, the Republic of Ireland welcoming World Cup semi-finalists Uruguay to Dublin, Russia travelling to Qatar, Cameroon taking on Gabon in Lisbon, and Mexico facing Venezuela in San Diego.
