Five players on international duty

Three heading to the World Cup, Burkardt and Onisiwo out with injuries

Jae-sung Lee has been included in South Korea’s World Cup squad.

While the winter break brings a chance for most of the Zerofivers to enjoy a deserved rest, the season continues for a handful of their teammates. Silvan Widmer, Edimilson Fernandes (both Switzerland) and Jae-sung Lee (South Korea) are all off to Qatar for the World Cup, while Leandro Barreiro and Ben Bobzien will be playing friendlies with their national sides. Barreiro and Luxembourg will be facing Hungary and Bulgaria in friendlies on 17th and 20th November, while Bobzien and the Germany U20s will take on the Czech Republic (16th November), Norway (19th November) and Portugal (22nd November).

Jonathan Burkardt, captain of the Germany U21s, and Karim Onisiwo (called up by Austria) will not feature for their sides after picking up injuries against Eintracht Frankfurt. Burkardt suffered a sprain to his left knee, while Onisiwo is out with a bruised foot.
