The nine Middlesbrough players out on international duty this week

Middlesbrough may be struggling for form in the league, so they will welcome the international break this coming week.

Middlesbrough have a total of nine players out on international duty, including five in senior sides, and four in their respective age groups.

1. Darren Randolph – Republic of Ireland

Randolph is cemented as Boro’s number one, and shares that same accolade in the Ireland set up too. The goalkeeper will play in Euro qualifiers against Gibraltar and Georgia for his national side.

2. Mo Besic – Bosnia and Herzegovina 

Although the Bosnian midfielder has had an up and down season with Middlesbrough, he remains a big part of the Bosnia side, who will face Armenia and Greece in the next week.

3. & 4. George Saville and Paddy McNair – Northern Ireland

Saville and McNair have been called up to the Northern Ireland squad again, and have become an integral part of Michael O’Neill’s side. The pair are often two of the first names on the teamsheet, and will be keen to impress as they play Estonia and Belarus in Euro qualifiers.

5. Dael Fry – England under-21s

Fry is another off the production line at Middlesbrough and has been in and around the first team since being given his debut aged 17 by former-boss Aitor Karanka. The 21-year old is first choice in Aidy Boothroyd’s exciting “Young Lions” team.

6. Enes Mahmutovic – Luxembourg

Although not featuring in the main league set up for Boro at the moment, Mahmutovic has been involved for Boro in the Carabao Cup. He has 10 caps for Luxembourg, and will look to add to them when they play two home games against Lithuania and Ukraine.

7. Marcus Tavernier – England under-20s

The 19-year old is certainly one for the future, and has been rotated in the matchday squad throughout the campaign. He has three goals in 14 games in the league, and is a constant fixture in the England under-20s team.

8. Stephen Walker – England under-19s

Walker has scored six goals in seven under-19 games for England, and is involved again this week, as they face Czech Republic, Greece and Denmark in the space of six days.

9. Patrick Reading – Scotland under-21s

A left-back in Boro’s under-23 side, Patrick Reading has been called up to the Scotland under-21s for the first time.
