Nine Aston Villa players set to play away

New, comments

Yes, we've once again reached an international break and yes, everyone's aware that you hate the international break. But put aside the moaning for a bit because you might as well take a look at where the Aston Villa players are heading.

Laurence Griffiths

The bad news: there's no Aston Villa match this weekend. The good news: the players get to recover from a series of tough matches. Sort of, anyway - because quite a few of them have commitments over the next few days.

There are nine Villans set to represent their respective countries this week, most with full international caps to collect, but three that will play at the younger levels.

Who's Missing?

Ron Vlaar
Calf injury, as we all know. Thank goodness Gus Hiddink didn't insist on picking Captain Vlaar for Netherlands as he needs to get healthy like, yesterday.

Christian Benteke
This time, Marc Wilmots is playing nice, and not bringing in Benteke like the last time the poor boy had barely recovered from an injury. Or perhaps the coach just doesn't think Belgium will have troubles with Andorra or Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Jack Grealish
Pulled out of Ireland U21 duty to deal with contract negotiations with Villa. We're certainly not going to begrudge him that.
