Three of our players are on international duty tonight with Reto Ziegler facing a crucial European Under-21 qualifying match.

Reto's team-mate at Spurs Tom Huddlestone will no doubt be keeping a close eye on events as Switzerland travel to Moldova in Group Eight.

That group comprises England, Switzerland and Moldova and Moldova shocked England to take a point from the opening fixture at Portman Road on August 15.

With just one qualifying place up for grabs, it means if Moldova beat Switzerland, they are through. If not, it will all go down the final group match between England and Switzerland in Luzern next week.

Reto said: "We thought England would win that game but we were all impressed with Moldova and it will be a difficult game for us, especially as we play them away, but well be ready.

"They played well against England and they will be a strong team. Well play our game, we saw the mistakes they made against England and well do our best to win it."

Elsewhere, Academy striker Terry Dixon is in the Republic of Ireland squad for a European qualifier against Belgium in Galway while Didier Zokora is with the Ivory Coast squad for a friendly against French side Nice.
