International Break: Where are Liverpool's internationals over the next two weeks?

Liverpool's first defeat under Jürgen Klopp on Sunday marked the final fixture before a two-week international break, giving the Reds a welcome rest as various players travel across the world to represent the countries.

Mamadou Sakho and James Milner have been forced to drop out of their national squads with injuries picked up over the last week, joining an ever-growing list of sidelined stars, but where are their team-mates over the next fortnight?

Numerous first-team regulars called up to their countries

Nathaniel Clyne and Adam Lallana are the only senior members joining up with England over the next 10 days, as they prepare to face Spain and France in qualifiers.

The duo, in addition to Milner and very briefly Danny Ings, helped Roy Hodgson's charges to qualify for this coming summer's Euro 2016 with a perfect record, boasting 10 wins from 10.

And they'll be looking to extend their credentials when they travel to Spain on Friday to take on the reigning champions, before hosting holders France at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday - with both Clyne and Lallana likely to feature heavily between the two high-profile clashes. 

Elsewhere, Christian Benteke joins Divock Origi and Simon Mignolet in the Belgium party as they host Italy and Spain in friendlies.

The trio were all regulars in the squad that topped Group B with 23 points, qualifying comfortably for the Euros and will be hoping to further ensure their place in Marc Wilmots' squad. 

Mignolet remains second-choice to Chelsea shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois, who is again absent for their upcoming fixtures through a knee injury, but will be given his chance to impress - whilst Origi will also be hoping to make his mark after struggling early on into his Liverpool career. 

Emre Can has earned another call-up to reigning World champions Germany, with them also having qualified with ease - losing just one of their 10 games.

Joachim Löw's 25-man squad face take on France in Paris, before hosting Netherlands - who failed to reach the Euros - in Hannover and Can will be hopeful of taking part, after earning his first full caps in a right-back role in September.

Martin Skrtel is also involved for Slovakia, who qualified behind Spain in Group C, and face Switzerland at home before playing Iceland away just four days later.

The captain of his country's team, Skrtel is likely to play near the full 90 minutes in both games - earning his 77th and 78th caps - whilst Liverpool scouts will watch anxiously hoping that he doesn't pick up an injury.

Joe Allen is another called up to his country's squad, with Wales still celebrating the fact they reached their first major finals of a tournament since 1958.

The midfielder, who is an infrequent member of Chris Coleman's side, will be hoping to be involved as they host Holland on Friday night - their only planned friendly until September 2016.

The 25-year-old, who is one of the more senior figures for Wales as opposed to his bit-part role at Liverpool, will also be hoping to convince the watching Jürgen Klopp that he is worthy of a more important duty in the squad back on Merseyside.

The only player whose side are involved in a competitive fixture is Adam Bogdan, whose Hungary side face Norway in a two-legged play-off to secure a spot at the Euros next year.

The Reds' back-up is also only second-choice for his country, behind the experienced Gabor Kiraly, but will be prepared to step in for the first-choice 'keeper against the Scandinavians as his country bid to their first major tournament since 1982, and their first Euros since 1972.

England Youngsters complete the set

In England's youth ranks, Jordon Ibe has been rewarded for his recent performances with a place in Gareth Southgate's England U21 squad to face Bosnia and Herzegovina and Switzerland in two U21 European Championship qualifiers.

Below that, Cameron Brannagan and Ryan Kent are included in Keith Downing's England U20 squad - with the former having made his first ever start for Liverpool in the League Cup last month and Kent thriving on loan at Coventry City, scoring his first ever professional goal recently. They face a double-header with France on Wednesday and Saturday, both games being away from home.

Otherwise, Daniel Sturridge, Jordan Henderson, Jon Flanagan, Danny Ings (England senior), Joe Gomez (England U21), Jordan Rossiter (England U19) and Lazar Markovic (Serbia) are all absent through injury.

Brazilian trio Philippe CoutinhoRoberto Firmino and Lucas Leiva are uninvolved with no fixtures, whilst Alberto Moreno, Dejan Lovren, Jose Enrique and Tiago Ilori are all not involved.
