SIXTEEN Saints players have been called up by their countries ahead of this month's international break.

They should all head off in good spirits after Southampton extended their unbeaten run to eight games with a 2-1 win over West Brom on Saturday,

Here's a rundown of every Saints player called up ahead of the final international break of 2023...


On loan Saints defender Taylor Harwood-Bellis returns to the England Under-21s squad having withdrawn with injury last month.

He will likely captain the side in Euro qualifiers against Serbia and Northern Ireland.

Sam Edozie is Southampton's only representative in England's Elite League squad, formerly known as the Under-20s, ahead of fixtures against Germany and Italy.

Simon Rusk's side are scheduled to play three friendlies against Romania on November 15, Japan on November 18 and Mexico on November 21.

Under-21 trio Sam Amo-Ameyaw, Jayden Meghoma and Tyler Dibling are a part of the England side competing at the Under-17 World Cup.

All three started in the Young Lion's 10-0 win over New Caledonia with Dibling and Amo-Ameyaw getting on the scoresheet.

Che Adams and Stuart Armstrong have once again been called up by Scotland manager Steve Clarke.

His side have already qualified for next summer's European Championships and will round off Group A with a trip to Georgia and a home game against Norway.

Scotland are currently behind group leaders Spain on goal difference and could earn top spot should they receive a swing of seven goals.

Ryan Fraser remains out of Clarke's plans despite his impact from the bench in Southampton's recent unbeaten run.

Republic of Ireland

The Republic of Ireland are once again the senior national team with the largest contingent of Southampton players.

Daily Echo:

Gavin Bazunu, Will Smallbone and Ryan Manning will be a part of the Irish squad that round out a disappointing Euro qualification campaign with a game against the Netherlands before a friendly with New Zealand.


Joe Aribo has been included in Nigeria's squad for their 2026 World Cup qualifiers against Lesotho and Zimbabwe.

Also included in the side is former Saint Nathan Tella, who has been selected for the first time since switching his allegiance from England.

Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill has selected Shea Charles, who will be suspended for their first match away to Finland on November 17.

The young midfielder will be back in contention for their final qualifier against Denmark three days later.


Jan Bednarek has returned to Poland's squad having been left out by manager Michał Probierz last month.

Poland currently sit one point behind second-place Czech Republic, who they face on November 17. However, in order to qualify, Bednarek's side will be hoping that the Czech Republic also slip up against Moldova.
