International Blues: Who’s playing where?

INTERNATIONALS: Otamendi is one of 13 City starts who could play today

INTERNATIONALS: Otamendi is one of 13 City starts who could play today

There’s a packed list of international friendlies happening across Europe today and there could be as many as 13 Manchester City players involved.

First up, Oleksandr Zinchenko could feature for Ukraine as they take on Japan in Belgium. That games kicks off at 1.20pm our time, with Zinchenko and his teammates looking to improve on their 1-1 draw with Saudi Arabia on Friday.

The game with most significance for City fans is perhaps Germany’s showdown with Brazil. Leroy Sane and Ilkay Gundogan will both be hoping to start after they were second-half substitutes in Germany’s 1-1 draw with Spain on Friday, and Gabriel Jesus, Ederson and Fernandinho could all lineup for the Brazilians.

England will look to continue their fine form when they take on Italy at Wembley this evening. Kyle Walker, John Stones and Raheem Sterling could all play a part. Gareth Southgate's side are currently unbeaten in seven matches and haven;t conceded a goal in five. 

Belgium play Saudi Arabia in Brussels. Saudi Arabia, keen to test themselves against some of the world’s best just 80 days before their World Cup opener against Russia, will have to tame Blues stars Kevin De Bruyne and Vincent Kompany if they want to secure a positive result.

Good luck, Blues!
