Yesterday we discussed Marvin Sordell's England U-21 call-up and and Martin Petrov's Bulgaria exclusion. Today, the rest of the international managers were on the phone with Bolton Wanderers. In additional to Sordell, six Trotters will represent Bolton on international duty. Five of those will be with their full national squads with four of the five playing World Cup 2014 qualifiers. Those qualifying matches will take place on September 7 and 11.
In what is a somewhat surprising move from US Men's National Team coach Jurgen Klinsmann, Tim Ream has called up Tim Ream for the home and away World Cup qualifying matches against Jamaica. Ream last featured in the league for Bolton in the 0-2 opening day loss against Burnley.
The full back will be with the Wales squad as they take on Belgium at home before travelling to Novi Sad to take on Serbia in World Cup qualifying.
We discussed this one last week. Chung-Yong Lee has been recalled by South Korea for their qualifying match away at Uzbekistan.
The goalkeeper looks to add on to his eight previous caps with Hungary travelling to Andorra before returning home for what will surely be a tough Netherlands test in qualifying matches.
The midfielder is in Ireland's side for a friendly against Ali Al-Habsi's Oman side.
The winger (who is yet to get a single competitive minute for Bolton Wanderers) is included in Scotland's U-21 side for the U-21 European Championship qualifiers against Luxembourg and austria.
The forward (who scored his first competitive Bolton Wanderers goal against Derby County last week) has been recalled to Stuart Pearce's England U-21s as they also try to qualify for the U-21 European Championship. They will face Azerbaijan and Norway.
