Which Manchester United players will be heading to international duty this September?

Manchester United have now concluded their fixtures before the international break, finishing with a 2-0 victory over Sheriff Tiraspol in Moldova.

The first eight fixture of the season have provided five wins and three losses, with Manchester United now sitting fifth in the Premier League table and second in Europa League Group E.

The fixtures saw Erik ten Hag create his first well settled starting XI, with the last few games boasting an impressive defensive record.

The club will have 15 first team squad players representing their countries on international duty, but which players are they?


Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Dean Henderson are those on United's books who will be playing for England in the next two weeks. Despite their good form, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho were not called up, with the former confirming he is out due to injury.

England will play away to Italy and at home against Germany in the Nations League in the next two weeks as Gareth Southgate prepares for a winter World Cup in Qatar.


The Red Devils have four players representing Brazil for the upcoming fixtures. New signings Antony and Casemiro will be joined by Fred for friendlies against Ghana and Tunisia, with both games being played in Europe in order to reduce travel time for the players.


They will meet on-loan red Alex Telles, currently at Sevilla, who has also been called up for the squad.


As usual, Manchester United's Portugese trio in Cristiano Ronaldo, Diogo Dalot and Bruno Fernandes once again are called up to the national team.

Portugal will face Czech Republic and Spain in their last two Nations League matches.


Raphael Varane, after some stunning performances under Erik ten Hag so far, once again features in the France national team where they will face Austria and Denmark in the Nations League.


New fan favourite Lisandro Martinez has been called up to the Argentinian national team for their friendlies against Honduras, Jamaica and the United Arab Emirates.

Youngster Alejandro Garnacho has not been called up to the squad despite previous involvements with the national team, however this was mostly expected as they prepare for their World Cup tournament.

Yet another one of United's new arrivals have been called up to their national team, with left-back Tyrell Malacia featuring in the squad for the Netherlands. Donny van de Beek was not called up, presumibly due to injury.

They are facing Poland and Belgium in their final two Nations League group games.


Christian Eriksen is once again back in the Denmark team, who will play Croatia and France in the Nations League.


Scott McTominay once again returns to action for Scotland as they face Ukraine twice and Ireland in the Nations League.

Here's to hoping that they all come back safe and sound with no injuries!
