Gingers: large and in charge
It seems that the list of Trotters involved in international action keeps getting shorter and shorter, mainly because it is. Perhaps if the club's form picks up, we'll see this trend reversing, but for now Wanderers fans have little to worry about injury-wise. Silver lining and all that. Anyway, without further ado let's get to our players who have been on the trot.
I had been quite convinced that Gary Cahill had cemented his place in the starting XI for England, but he was only an unused substitute in England's 1-0 win over Spain. That said, he does look set to start in Tuesday's game against Sweden. Best of luck to him!
In a different kind of turn around, Bogdan who hasn't been featuring for his country much played the full 90 for Hungary in their 5-0 win over Liechtenstein. After that display, he will hopefully be getting another run out on Tuesday when Hungary face Poland.
Our loanboy has been consistently representing for France U21s, and this round proved no different as he started in their latest European Championship qualifying match against Romania. Les Petits Bleus* once again pulled out an easy win, this time by a margin of 3-0.

Finally from the reserve side of things, we have Mark Connolly who is expected to start for the Republic of Ireland U21s in their qualifier against Liechtenstein. The young defender has proven himself invaluable to the side, and the experience will be good.
Best of luck to all of our international Trotters!
