International Royals

11 October 2012

Seven players away with national teams

No fewer than seven Reading players will be representing their countries over the next week during the October international period.

Welsh trio Chris Gunter, Hal Robson-Kanu and Simon Church have all once again received call-ups - and the Dragons resume their 2014 World Cup qualification hopes by hosting Scotland tomorrow night, before a tricky away qualifier at Croatia on Tuesday.

Mikele Leigertwood is still struggling with a dead leg and will not represent Antigua & Barbuda - who would have faced Adrian Mariappa's Jamaica on Tuesday. 'Mapps', however, is set to feature for the Reggaeboyz for that match and in Jamaica's visit to Guatemala tomorrow night.

Kaspars Gorkss is again away on duty - the big defender has linked up with his international team mates at a training camp for Latvia's match in Slovakia tomorrow night, before they host Liechtenstein on Tuesday.

The Royals also have two young Royals away during the international break. Australia U19s midfielder Ryan Edwards is away at a training camp in Portugal for a week, before he travels to UAE with the squad for the AFC U19 Championships between 28 October to 17 November - while Pierce Sweeney has been called up to the Republic of Ireland's U19s squad their qualifiers against Luxemborg, Macedonia and Germany.
