FOUR WIGAN ATHLETIC PLAYERS SET FOR INTERNATIONAL ACTION THIS WEEK

5 September 2018

Wigan Athletic's Will Grigg, Antonee Robinson, Reece James and Owen Evans set for international action this week.

  • Four Wigan Athletic first team players set for international action in September
  • Will Grigg kicks off UEFA Nations League campaign with Northern Ireland whilst Antonee Robinson is involved with the US Mens National Team
  • Reece James and Owen Evans involved for England U20 and Wales U21 respectively

We take a look at what our international stars will be up to over the next week as they represent their countries across the world:

Reece James (England U20)

Young full back Reece James has been called up for England's U20 side as they face Switzerland and the Netherlands in the next week. 

First, Paul Simpson's side will face Switzerland at St. George's Park on Thursday before flying out to the Netherlands for a Monday evening clash at the home of KVV Quick Boys in Katwijk.

Will Grigg (Northern Ireland)

Will Grigg has returned to Michael O'Neill's Northern Ireland squad for a double header with Bosnia & Herzegovina and Israel in Belfast.

First, Grigg's side face Bosnia & Herzegovina on Saturday in their UEFA Nations League opener (kick-off 2pm) before Israel visit Belfast on Tuesday (7:45pm kick-off) in an international friendly.

Antonee Robinson (USMNT)

Everton loanee Antonee Robinson will look to add to his US Mens National Team caps when his country face Brazil in New Jersey on Friday and Mexico in Tennessee on Tuesday.

Both matches are international friendlies.

Owen Evans (Wales U21)

Owen Evans' Wales U21 side face an uphill take if they are to qualify for the UEFA U21 European Championship finals.

With four games remaining, it is likely only four victories would give Rob Page's side any chance of qualification.

On Friday, Wales host Liechtenstein in Bangor before Portugal also travel to the VSM Stadium on Tuesday.
