Blues on duty: who to follow during the international break
As there are two weeks left until our next Premier League clash with Tottenham, let's take a look at our lads' (no loanees included) upcoming matches for their national teams.
Blues: Ross Barkley & Ruben Loftus-Cheek
Opponents: USA (friendly) & Croatia (Nations League)
The Three Lions will have their last chance to qualify for the UEFA Nations League playoffs that will take place next summer. However, Gareth Southgate side will have to not only win against the Croats but also hope for Spain's defeat.
Blues: Kepa Arrizabalaga, Cesar Azpilicueta, Alvaro Morata
Opponents: Croatia (Nations League) & Bosnia and Herzegovina (friendly)
On the contrary, La Furia Roja are the favourites to advance to the playoffs as they are currently first in Group 4 - the Spaniards only have to get at least a draw against Croatia.
Blues: N'Golo Kante & Olivier Giroud
Opponents: Netherlands (Nations League) & Uruguay (friendly)
Blues: Emerson & Jorginho
Opponents: Portugal (Nations League) & USA (friendly)
The Italians face almost the same problem as The Three Lions: they have to do whatever it takes to win against Portugal and hope Cristiano Ronaldo's team loses to Poland.
Blues: Antonio Rudiger
Opponents: Russia (friendly) & Netherlands (Nations League)
Die Mannschaft have no chances to qualify for the summer playoffs. What's more, they may even face relegation in case of dropping points to Oranjie.
Blues: Ethan Ampadu
Opponents: Denmark (Nations League) & Albania (friendly)
Ryan Giggs' team has all the chances to get the promotion to League A of the tournament if they don't lose to Denmark.
Blues: Andreas Christensen
Opponents: Wales (Nations League) & Ireland (Nations League)
It's still unknown whether our defender gets a place in the starting XI or not, but his national team definitely has to win against The Dragons to secure the promotion.
Blues: Eden Hazard
Opponents: Iceland (Nations League) & Switzerland (Nations League)
The third best team of the previous World Cup and the Swiss side both have six points and the clash between them will be the decisive one in Group 2.
Blues: Mateo Kovacic
Opponents: Spain (Nations League) & England (Nations League)
After facing the 0-6 defeat to Spain in September, the Croats' chances to advance to the playoffs are invisible as they are at the bottom of Group 4.
Opponents: Uruguay (friendly) & Cameroon (friendly)
Pentacampeo won't play any official matches during this international break and that will definitely be a good opportunity for our winger to show his best.
