Eight West Ham players will jet off to play with their national teams during this October international break, which features over the course of 10 days. 

We take a look at all West Ham players that have been called up by their countries for this international break, with many playing in some important fixtures.

Most will play in vital World Cup qualifying fixtures, while one will have the chance to prove themselves in this year’s UEFA Nations League finals.

Take a look at who is in action below…

Pablo Fornals 

Fornals is West Ham’s only player in the UEFA Nations League finals this year, as Spain go head-to-head with Italy to start in the semi’s.

A win could see them face Belgium or France in the final, and a goal and assist from Fornals in their last international break could see him get some good game time and possibly his first-ever international trophy.

Declan Rice

England’s star midfielder will be back in action for the Three Lions, who face Andorra and Hungary in their two fixtures.

Rice scored in his last outings for the national team and will look to help the team improve on their unbeaten record and extend their lead in Group I.

Lukasz Fabianski 

Former Poland number 1 Lukasz Fabianski will make his final ever appearance for his national team this week, after announcing his retirement from international duty in August.

His final cap will come against San Marino on Saturday and will cap off a 15-year career with Poland. He will look to help them jump above Albania into second in Group I.

Tomas Soucek and Alex Kral 

The Czech Republic duo of Tomas Soucek and Alex Kral, will go head to head with Wales and Belarus in group E.

They will look to further cement their position in second place, with Belgium storming ahead in first. But their next two games are crucial for their World Cup qualifying campaign – with Wales on the same points as them and Belarus just four points behind.

Nikola Vlasic 

Vlasic and the Croatian national team will aim to create a gap at the top of Group H this week.

Croatia sit first on level points with Russia,  but face Cyprus and Slovakia during this week. Vlasic grabbed a goal in his last game for his national team and could be a vital player for them in these fixtures.

Andriy Yarmolenko

Yarmolenko and Ukraine face a nail-biting two fixtures this week, as they look to cement the second-place spot in Group D. Five draws in five games puts them on the same points as Finland, who they play on Saturday.

Bosnia & Herzegovina will be their next opponents and the experienced, 102 capped Yarmolenko will need to be in fine form for Ukraine.

Said Benrahma 

Finally, moving out of Europe, West Ham have Said Benrahma playing for Algeria in Group A of World Cup qualifying.

Benrahma will go up against Niger twice, home and away, and will look to extend their unbeaten run to 14 games in all competitions.
