Preview: United Internationals

A plethora of United players will be in international action as the Reds take a break from domestic football (adopted from Redview 23th March 2007 Issue 149). I don't really care about the International game. I'm just interested watching Man United achieving another treble this year and not Chelsea stealing a quadruple...

Rio Ferdinand, Wayne Rooney, Michael Carrick and Ben Foster all trained with England at the new Wembley on Wednesday, ahead of the crucial qualifiers against Israel and Andorra. Kieran Richardson could go one better, and be the first United man to play there when England's Under-21s host Italy in a friendly on Saturday.

Two United players will go head-to-head next Wednesday when Serbia host Portugal. Before that, Nemanja Vidic and Cristiano Ronaldo will play away to Kazakhstan and at home to Belgium respectively. Ronaldo must be careful as his opponent have bad intention to get him down under 2 minutes!!!

Jonny Evans, currently excelling on loan to Sunderland, has been called into the Northern Ireland squad to face Liechtenstein and Sweden.

John O'Shea and Darron Gibson are involved for the Republic of Ireland's matches against Ryan Giggs' Wales and then Slovakia. Wales' second game is against San Marino next Wednesday.

Edwin van der Sar's calf injury keeps him out of Holland's qualifier against Romania but he'll be assessed again before the clash with Slovenia. Tomasz Kuszczak is in the Poland squad to face Azerbaijan and Armenia.

Ji-sung Park is in the South Korean squad for their friendly with Uruguay, while Dong Fangzhuo has been called up by China for their games against Australia and Uzbekistan.
