That could rise to eleven if Luka Modric recovers from his adductor problems and travels to Croatia to face Slovenia next week. No Spanish summoned


Ten members of the Real Madrid squad have left in this first stoppage of national teams in this last stretch of 2021. Eleven that can remain in a dozen if Modric does not just recover from the adductor discomfort that has separated him from the The last two league games that the Whites have played. This 'FIFA Virus' has forced to modify the calendar of the whites, who have seen how their match against Celta de Vigo has gone from being played on Saturday the 11th at 4:15 p.m. to being played a day later at 9:00 p.m. .

This time it is Brazil who brings the most players to their matches: their coach, Tite, has called up Militao, Casemiro and Vinicius for the matches that the five-time world champion will play. The Brazilians will travel to Chile to medize at La Roja at dawn on the 3rd (03:00 in the morning). Later they will receive Argentina, in the repetition of the final of the last Copa América (day 5 at 9:00 p.m.) and Peru (on the 10th at 02:30 in the morning, always in Spanish time).

The second team that has cited the most Madrid players is Belgium, which has called up Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard. The Belgians, who lead the FIFA rankings, have two outings in this national team break: they will travel to Estonia (September 2, 8:45 PM) and Belarus (September 8, 8:45 PM). In the middle, on the 5th, they receive the Czech Republic (8:45 p.m.).

After his return to play with France in the last European Championship, Karim Benzema has once again been called up by Didier Deschamps. Lyonnaise will once again form attacking point with Kylian Mbappé. Les Bleus meet Bosnia on the first day of September (8:45 p.m.), before traveling to Ukraine, where they will meet the Ukrainians on September 4 at 8:45 p.m. They will finish this cycle by receiving Finland on the 7th at 8:45 p.m.

Austrian David Alaba, the only white incorporation so far, has traveled to Vienna to meet his teammates to face Moldova (September 1, 8:45 PM), Israel (September 4, 8:45 PM) , both outside Austrian territory. It closes this week by welcoming Scotland home on September 7 (8:45 p.m.).

Gareth Bale will again lead Wales. First in a friendly on September 1 (6:00 pm) against Finland, and later in two qualifying matches for the World Cup in Qatar. The first against Belarus (on the 5th at 3:00 p.m.), to finish against Estonia on the 8th (8:45 p.m.).

The Uruguayan Fede Valverde will once again wear the blue against Peru at dawn on the 3rd at 03:00 in the morning, before receiving Bolivia in Montevideo (on the 6th at 00:00 at night) and Ecuador (at the early morning of the 10th at 00:30 at night, always in Spanish time) .

Luka Jovic, called up by Serbia, is summoned to face Qatar in a friendly match (September 1, 8:45 p.m.), before facing Luxembourg (September 4, 6:00 p.m.) and Ireland (September 7, 19 : 45 hours), these two matches valid for the 2022 World Cup classification. The Serbian has barely had minutes at this start of the League: nine minutes divided against Alavés and Levante in the first two days. On Saturday, against Betis, he stayed on the bench.

Finally is Luka Modric. His case is striking. He is injured (adductor pain) and will not travel to Croatia in these first two games. Seeing how he evolves from his discomfort, the Croatian midfielder could travel to face Slovenia. You lose that if the duels against Russia and Slovakia.
