13 players from Giampaolo’s squad will be in action with their respective national teams in this upcoming break.

After playing their first two matches of the season, losing 1-0 to Udinese and winning 1-0 against Brescia, Marco Giampaolo will have some time for reflection as it’s now the first seasonal international break.

13 Milan players will be in action for 12 different sides (11 countries). While some will have friendlies, most will be involved in the European Championship qualifiers.

It’s interesting to see that out of the six players the Rossoneri signed in the transfer market, only the Brazilian Léo Duarte and the French Theo Hernández (who is still injured anyways) have not been called-up by their national teams for the upcoming September matches.

Ante Rebić, Ismaël Bennacer, Rafael Leão and Rade Krunić will all be involved in games and will not train under Giampaolo in this break. Meanwhile, Alessio Romagnoli – after the injury of Giorgio Chiellini – could find himself in the starting XI of Italy, in addition to Gigio Donnarumma. Lucas Paquetá, Suso and Krzysztof Piątek among others will also play with their respective national teams.

The full list of called-up players and their matches with dates and times is below:
