The international break rolls around once again this weekend, meaning there won't be any Premier League football for fans to savour.

Rafa Benitez has two weeks to work with his new Newcastle United squad to prepare them for their next match, a huge clash against Norwich at Carrow Road. But, he will be without several key players who have been called up to represent their countries.

The first game that could have involved a Newcastle player occured last night, as Poland edged past Serbia, but Aleksandar Mitrovic was an unused substitute for Serbia in their 1-0 defeat. However, Mitrovic, who scored Newcastle's equaliser in Sunday's draw with Sunderland, will have another chance to impress for his country as Serbia travel to face Estonia on Tuesday.

Seydou DoumbiaChancel Mbemba and Henri Saivet will all be expected to feature in their countries' crucial AFCON Qualififers taking place in the next week, while Georginio Wijanldum and Moussa Sissoko will go head-to-head as the Netherlands take on France.

Wijnaldum, Newcastle's top scorer this season, will also have the chance to impress at Wembley on Tuesday night as England take on the Netherlands.

Elsewhere, Rob Elliot's good form this campaign has earned him a call-up for the Republic of Ireland, and there are plenty of Newcastle youngsters who will be expected to feature for their country's youth sides.
