Internationals in action

8 September 2015

Doncaster game may move in October

It's been a busy few days for several members of the Millwall squad with four players away on international duty and another on standby.

Left back Shane Ferguson has been in the thick of the action for Northern Ireland, having recovered from his recent hamstring injury, coming on as a substitute during Friday's win in the Faroe Islands, and then again on Tuesday night in the 1-1 draw against Hungary which sees Michael O'Neill's charges on the brink of qualification for France next summer.

There wasn't such good news for Jimmy Abdou, whose Comoros side were beaten 1-0 at home by Uganda in an African Cup of Nations qualifier.

It was, however a successful weekend for the Republic of Ireland who strengthened their chances of finishing third in their Euro 2016 qualifying group after two wins over Gibraltar and Georgia with David Forde on the subs' bench.

Further afield, promising young full back Mahlon Romeo was a second half substitute for Antigua and Barbuda as they beat Guatemala 1-0 in the first leg of a preliminary 2018 World Cup qualifier, with the second leg on Tuesday night.

It has been a watching brief for Steve Morison, who has been on standby for Wales over the weekend. With Chris Coleman's men just one point away from qualification for Euro 2016, Steve will be hoping to be called into the squad for the final push against Bosnia & Herzegovina and then Andorra in October.

The next international break from League fixtures is scheduled for the weekend of 10th October when The Lions are at home to Doncaster Rovers in Sky Bet League One. In the likely event that three or more members of the senior Millwall squad are again called up for international duty, that Doncaster game would be postponed and re-scheduled for Tuesday 27th October with a 7.45 kick-off.
