With Premier League action coming to a halt, fifteen City players will be in action during the October international break.

We’ll have to wait 12 days before we see them back in a sky blue shirt, but before then it is a mix of tournament qualifiers and friendly matches for our cohort of international representatives.

The injured quartet of Kevin De Bruyne, Aymeric Laporte, Leroy Sane and John Stones will not be involved, but here is the complete list of those that have been selected and when they are playing.


Captain Riyad Mahrez will likely add to his 54 caps as the Desert Foxes aim to continue their unbeaten 2019 run in friendlies against DR Congo and Colombia.

Algeria v DR Congo - 8.45pm BST Thursday 10 October.

Algeria v Colombia - 8pm BST Tuesday 15 October.

Ecuador v Argentina - 3pm BST Sunday 13 October.


Ederson and Gabriel Jesus have both been called up by Brazil, who have friendlies lined up with Senegal and Nigeria. Both games will be played in Singapore as part of the Brazil Global Tour series and Jesus needs two goals to reach 20 for his country.

Brazil v Senegal - 1pm BST Thursday 10 October.
