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

Milan won their game against Genoa on Saturday, but the club is looking for a new coach as they’ve decided to sack Marco Giampaolo after seven games. It makes sense to change now as it’s the second seasonal international break.

12 Milan players will be in action for 11 different sides (10 countries). While some will have friendlies, most will be involved in the European Championship qualifiers.

Italy, with Gigio Donnarumma and Alessio Romagnoli, face Greece and Liechtenstein, while Krzysztof Piątek will try to score as Poland play Latvia and North Macedonia; R. Rodríguez and Switzerland take on Denmark and Republic of Ireland and Ante Rebić’s Croatia face Hungary and Wales.

Hakan Çalhanoğlu and Turkey have games against Albania and France, while Rafael Leão plays Netherlands U21 with Portugal U21. Suso was not called-up by Spain for this round of games.

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