The majority of international action comes to a conclusion for Norwich City players this evening.
Teemu Pukki and Finland take on world champions France as World Cup qualification continues but it should be somewhat easier for Mathias Normann as Norway host Gibraltar.
Adam Idah and Andrew Omobamidele are hoping to feature as the Republic of Ireland take on Serbia in Dublin knowing they need a win.
Grant Hanley and Billy Gilmour are with Scotland in Austria for a game when avoiding defeat would be seen as a positive outcome.
There will be two City players on opposing teams in Amsterdam but Tim Krul and Ozan Kabak are yet to feature for Holland and Turkey respectively during the international break.
Max Aarons is set for action in Milton Keynes, where he grew up, as the England Under-21s take on Kosovo in European U21 Championship qualifying.
The Young Lions had to cancel a friendly in Romania on Friday as two unnamed members of their group went into isolation after positive Covid-19 tests - but Aarons was pictured in training yesterday so hasn't been affected.
