These Bayern players have been selected for their national teams
The last international break of the year is upon us, including the final qualification matches before the draw for the group stage of EURO 2024 in Germany on 2 December. fcbayern.com provides an overview of which of the club's players have been called up for their national teams.
Germany: Goretzka, Gnabry, Kimmich, Müller, Sané
Germany boss Julian Nagelsmann has called on a strong Bayern contingent for the upcoming friendlies against Turkey on 18 November (20:45*) at Berlin's Olympiastadion and against Austria three days later (20:45) in Vienna. In Leon Goretzka, Serge Gnabry, Joshua Kimmich, Thomas Müller and Leroy Sané, a total of five men from the German record champions have been picked. Jamal Musiala is unavailable due to a muscle injury, while it's also been agreed between Bayern and the DFB that Manuel Neuer will not return to the squad yet following his comeback.
France: Coman, Upamecano
The English national team, led by captain Harry Kane, are also certain of their place at next summer's tournament. In their final two games of qualifying, the Three Lions host Malta at London's Wembley Stadium (17 November, 20:45) before travelling to Skopje to take on North Macedonia (20 November, 20:45).
Konrad Laimer has been selected by Austria for their final EURO qualifier against Estonia in Tallinn (16 November, 18:00). The Austrians (16 points) have already qualified for the EURO finals but are hoping to pip Belgium (17 points) to first place in Group F. Five days later, it's the friendly against EURO hosts Germany at Vienna's Ernst-Happel-Stadion (21 November, 20:45).
Goalkeeper Daniel Peretz has been called up for Israel's upcoming internationals. Because no matches could take place in October due to the terror attack by Hamas, the Israeli national team now play four qualifiers in November. After the game against Kosovo in Pristina on 12 November (20:45), Alon Hazan's side will play their two home matches against Swizerland (15 November, 20:45) and Romania (18 November, 20:45) in Felcsut in Hungary, around 20 kilometres west of the capital Budapest, due to the current situation. Then it's off to Andorra's national stadium for the final qualifier on 21 November (20:45).
Israel sit third in Group I with 11 points from six games, trailing Switzerland (15 points, seven games) and Romania (16 points, eight games) but with promising chances of a place at EURO 2024.
Noussair Mazraoui has been called up for Morocco's opening matches in qualifying for the 2026 World Cup. The North Africans begin at home to Eritrea in Agadir (16 November, 20:00) before travelling to Tanzania five days later (21 November, 20:00 in Dar es Salaam).
South Korea: Minjae Kim
South Korea are also in World Cup qualifying action. Bayern defender Minjae Kim has again been selected by coach Jürgen Klinsmann for the first two fixtures against Singapore (16 November, 12:00 in Seoul) and China (21 November, 13:00 in Shenzhen).
Alphonso Davies and the Canadian team face a double-header against Jamaica. The North Americans play the island country in a two-legged quarter-final in the CONCACAF Nations League. The teams meet in Kingston first in the early hours of 18 November (1:00), before the return leg in Toronto on 22 November (1:30).
France U21: Tel
Young striker Mathys Tel has again been named in the France U21 squad. As leaders of Group H with the maximum haul of nine points from three matches, Thierry Henry's team take on Austria in their next qualifier (17 November, 18:30 in Ried). Three days later, the French youngsters welcome South Korea for a friendly in Le Havre (20 November, 18:30).
