Millwall's October International Preview

7 October 2020

Millwall's internationals will be preparing for the weekend ahead as they look to represent their nations across the globe in some vitally important matches. As the majority of Gary Rowett's side continue to prepare for the recommencing of the League season away at Wycombe next week, we take a look at three Lions representing their nations this week.

Jon Dadi Bodvarsson – Iceland

Three big games await Jon Dadi Bodvarsson and his Icelandic teammates this weekend. First up, it's Romania in the EURO 2020 play-offs before hosting both Denmark and big-hitters Belgium in the UEFA Nations League. 

Jon Dadi experienced a dramatic encounter in Iceland's last Nations League outing against England. With Southgate's side down to ten-men after Kyle Walkers dismissal, and the scores locked at 0-0 in the dying stages of the match, Raheem Sterling broke Iceland's resistance in the 90th minute. 

Ingason was shown a second yellow card for handball inside the box and Sterling calmly slotted home the penalty.

Joe Gomez gifted the hosts an immediate route back into the game with a penalty after a clumsy foul on Gudmundsson. Thankfully for England, Bjarnason blazed the penalty high and wide.

Shane Ferguson – Northern Ireland

Manager Ian Baraclough has selected midfielder Shane Ferguson as part of a 26-man squad ahead of three important matches for the Green and White Army.  

Ferguson and his teammates will kick off their schedule of international matches in a EURO 2020 play-off match against Bosnia and Herzegovina on the 8th October, followed by UEFA Nations League matches against Austria in Belfast on the 11th October and Norway in Oslo on the 14th October.

Baraclough's side currently sit at the foot of their UEFA Nations League table, picking up just one point from their opening two games. 

Danny McNamara – Republic of Ireland U21

Jim Crawford has named defender Danny McNamara in 23-man squad ahead of the Republic of Ireland's UEFA Under-21 European Championship match against Italy. 

McNamara, who is currently on loan at St Johnstone, made his debut for the under-21s in a 1-0 win against Armenia in November 2019. 

Sat top of their group on 16 points, a win against second-placed Italy will give them a much needed boost with the Italians having a game in hand.
