Players now return to Huddersfield ahead of Sunday

- Five Huddersfield Town players earn international caps
- Juninho Bacuna plays first full 90 for Curacao
- Florent Hadergjonaj plays for Kosovo against England!

Five Huddersfield Town players earned further caps for their countries at the start of this week.

The quintet played across the globe for their respective countries across Monday and Tuesday and will now return to Huddersfield ahead of Sunday’s Sky Bet Championship game at home to Sheffield Wednesday.

Here’s a run-down of who featured where!

Juninho Bacuna

Juninho Bacuna played his first full 90 minutes for Curacao as they drew 1-1 with Haiti in their second game of the CONCACAF Nations League.

The game was played on a backdrop of sadness, as Curacao goalkeeper Jarzinho Pieter tragically passed away whilst with the squad ahead of the game.

Bacuna made his debut for his country in their previous game against Haiti on 7 September.

The point sees Curacao top their CONCACAF Nations League group with four points and they are next in action in October when they travel to Costa Rica in the next round of
CONCACAF Nations League matches.

Florent Hadergjonaj

Flo Haderjgonaj made his third appearance for Kosovo in their 5-3 defeat to England at Southampton’s St Mary’s Stadium in UEFA Euro Qualifying.

As was the case in Kosovo’s previous game against Czech Republic, Hadergjonaj played at left back.

Kosovo’s defeat meant their 15 game unbeaten streak was brought to an end, however they can bounce back during the next international period in October when they take on Gibraltar in a friendly followed by their next UEFA Euro Qualifier against Montenegro.

Trevoh Chalobah

Trevoh made his second start for England’s Under-21s as they beat Kosovo Under-21s 2-0 in UEFA Euro U21 Qualifying.

The midfielder made his debut for the Under-21s in their last game against Turkey, and built on his debut with another 90 minutes for Aidy Boothroyd’s side against Kosovo.

England’s Under-21s next take on Slovenia in a friendly followed by their next UEFA Euro U21 Qualifier against Austria-Under 21s when international football resumes in October.

Kamil Grabara

Town loanee Kamil Grabara was also involved in UEFA Euro U21 Qualifying as Poland Under-21s beat Estonia Under-21s 4-0 in Bialystok.

Grabara earnt his 18th Poland Under-21 cap as his team made it two wins out of two in UEFA Euro U21 Qualifying. Poland top Group 5, two points ahead of second placed Bulgaria.

Poland’s Under-21s have a UEFA Euro U21 Qualifier double header during October’s international break. They first take on Russia on 11 October before hosting Serbia four days later.

Steve Mounié

Steve Mounié’s Benin played African Cup of Nations champions Algeria in a friendly in Blida on Monday evening. Algeria won the game 1-0 thanks to a penalty from Islam Slimani.

Mounié earnt his 22nd cap for his country in the game, playing only the first half of the game before being substituted at half-time.

Benin are next in action on 11 November when they travel to Nigeria for African Cup of Nations Qualifying.
