Manchester City players are enjoying a change of scenery this week, with the majority of Pep Guardiola's squad having joined up with their national team.

A host of players have been involved in international matches, with the England trio of Raheem Sterling, John Stones and Kyle Walker helping the Three Lions to a 1-0 win over the Netherlands, while Nicolas Otamendi played as Argentina beat Italy at the Etihad Stadium.

Check out what the rest of the lads have been doing with their time below...
