Here is an update on the seven international call-ups received by Huddersfield Town players for the September 2022 international break.
Sorba Thomas – Wales

Jamaica’s last game ended in a 1-1 draw against this year’s World Cup hosts in August 2022, so Russell will be looking for a win in his first international call-up.
Yuta Nakayama – Japan
A regular in the Japanese squad, Nakayama has been called up to join them for the September international break as they prepare to compete in the World Cup this winter.
Japan will face the USA team on Friday 23 September before taking on Ecuador on Tuesday 27 September, with the Japanese side based out of Germany for these games.
