International Preview

Take a look at this month’s Lions on international duty

13 November 2019

The third international break of 2019/20 is now upon us, with a quartet of Millwall players set to be involved over the course of the coming days. As The Lions continue their hard work with Gary Rowett and his staff ahead of the Sky Bet Championship trip to Swansea City, millwallfc.co.uk takes a look at the four representing their nations...

Shane Ferguson – Northern Ireland

Shane Ferguson has been called up once more to the Northern Ireland squad, as they look to grab results against the Netherlands and Germany in a bid to make up ground on the leading pair in Group C of UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying. With manager Michael O’Neill recently accepting the Stoke City role, he is still expected to take charge of the vital qualifying contests, with Shane and the Green and White Army three points below both of their opponents. Northern Ireland host the Netherlands at Windsor Park on Saturday night, travelling to Frankfurt to take on Germany next Tuesday.

Jon Dadi Bodvarsson – Iceland

Fresh from playing his part in The Lions' 2-1 Sky Bet Championship win over Charlton Athletic on Saturday afternoon, Jon Dadi Bodvarsson will now visit Turkey - on Thursday evening - and Moldova - on Sunday night - with his Icelandic team-mates in an attempt to qualify for next summer's finals. Bodvarsson's outfit sit four points behind Turkey and World Cup holders France, and will surely look to gain three points against bottom-placed Moldova.

Jayson Molumby, Danny McNamara – Republic of Ireland Under 21

For Jayson Molumby and Danny McNamara - the latter currently on loan at League Two side Newport County - the November international break will present Republic of Ireland's Under 21s with the chance to extend their lead at the top of the UEFA Under 21 Championship Qualifying Group A table. Sitting a point above nearest rivals Iceland, and three above Italy, the Emerald Isle face matches against Armenia (a) and Sweden (h) on Thursday 14th and Tuesday 19th respectively.

Stay with millwallfc.co.uk to find out how the quartet fared on international duty in our Round-Up next week.
