West Ham will have six players heading off on international duty to represent their countries over the next ten days or so as the latest international break has arrived.
Marko Arnautovic, Andriy Yarmolenko, Robert Snodgrass, Lukasz Fabianski, Arthur Masuaku and Fabian Balbuena will be heading away to be with their respective countries while the other squad players are given a few days off this week.
Arnautovic has been playing with a knee injury over the past three weeks and the Hammers would no doubt have preferred it if he wasn’t called up by Austria but, alas, he was. Yarmolenko too has taken a few knocks recently but he has been called up by Ukraine.
Masuaku has been called up for the first time since walking out of training with DR Congo back in March and could make his international debut this week. Balbuena will be heading to south America to join up with his Paraguay teammates for a training camp while Fabianski and Snodgrass will be a bit closer to home with Poland and Scotland respectively.
Below is their schedules for the next two games while away with their countries and where, when and who they will be playing.
Friday, October 12 vs Northern Ireland, UEFA Nations League Group B3, Vienna.
Tuesday, October 16 vs Denmark, friendly, Herning.
