16 Manchester City players called up for international duty in September



| Last Updated:


Manchester City will have a total of 16 first-team players, alongside a long list of youth stars, representing their nations during the September international break.

Following the conclusion of the opening four Premier League matches acting as the start of Manchester City’s Premier League title defence, attentions now turn to a selection of international friendlies and European Championship qualifiers among other competitions.

As part of an extensive list of international fixtures, Gareth Southgate’s England side and their Manchester City stars take on Ukraine and Scotland in a European Championship qualifier and international friendly respectively.

City’s new stars in the Croatia national team also embark on two matches of their own, both of which are in European Championship competition, taking on Latvia and Armenia across the next two weeks.

Following the international break, Manchester City take on an additional two competitions added to their hectic Premier League schedule, as a clash against Red Star Belgrade at the Etihad Stadium in the Champions League and a trip to St. James’ Park in the Carabao Cup third round await before the month of September is up.

City will be hoping to maintain their perfect 100 per cent winning record in the Premier League for longer, as stand-in club captain Kyle Walker issued a bold demand to his teammates of running away with the league title this season, as opposed to chasing competitors.
