A round up of Championship players on international duty this week



As we enter the international break, there will be plenty of Championship players jetting off across Europe this week to represent their country.


There are some quality players in the Sky Bet Championship who are given International recognition for their talents.

England, Wales, Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland all qualified for the European Championships in France this summer that all feature Championship players.

Euro 2016 is only 3 and half months away and there will be players from the second-tier making sure that they earn the right to play for their country in France.

England face Germany on Saturday, while Wales and Northern Ireland lock horns on Thursday night and Republic of Ireland face Switzerland at the Aviva Stadium on Friday night.

England and Wales have the toughest of groups in the summer as they will be in the same group alongside Russia and Slovakia.
