See who is away from Watford’s training ground this week

FIVE Hornets are on international duty this week for their respective nations in the latest round of international fixtures.

Three players are involved in the same game as England’s Under-21 squad host Northern Ireland in the International Challenge Match at Blackpool’s Bloomfield Road tomorrow (Tuesday evening).

Nathaniel Chalobah – on loan from Chelsea until January – has been called up by The Three Lions for the very first time. 

He’ll come up against two of his Vicarage Road team-mates with both Lee Hodson and Adam Thompson included in Ireland’s squad. 

Cristian Battocchio faces Switzerland with Italy’s Under-20 squad on Wednesday afternoon. 

Finally, Matej Vydra is again included in the Czech Republic’s senior squad as they prepare to face Slovakia on Wednesday.
