Nick Pope, Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Robbie Brady are headline more international call-ups from the Burnley camp, ahead of next week's international break. 

Pope, 28, could temporarily become the England number-one for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers, with Jordan Pickford on the sidelines. It represents a fantastic opportunity for the goalkeeper to make his mark in a Three Lions jersey. 

Gareth Southgate has always had a preference for Pickford because the Everton stopper is excellent with the ball at his feet. Pope will have to demonstrate good composure on the ball, but he may look to utilise his strong throwing technique in order to compensate for his lack of kicking precision. 

Pope is only person that Southgate called upon from Burnley, despite the strong form of James Tarkowski in the centre of defence. The continued national rejection could tempt Tarkowski to seek a move away from East Lancashire in the summer. 

Other call-ups

Elsewhere, Pope's understudy, Bailey Peacock-Farrell has been called up to the Northern Ireland squad. Peacock-Farrell had impressed for his country in recent appearances and he will be delighted that he has the opportunity to perform for his country again, despite seeing little action for the Clarets. 

Robbie Brady and Johann Berg Gudmundsson have also received international orders, despite their recurring fitness struggles. The former will be hoping to play himself into some form again, with his horrendous cameo against Fulham still quite fresh in the mind.

Earlier in the week, Matej Vydra also received a call-up from the Czech Republic and Dwight McNeil was recognised by the England Under-21s

As noted earlier in the week, Burnley manager Sean Dyche will be very pleased to see so many members of his squad being recognised for their talent. Of course, he would like to see his players given a rest because this has been a relentless season. However, he will be delighted to see the progress of his stars.
