Eight United players are in senior action as Euro 2020 qualifying draws to a close.

No, we can’t quite believe it either, but it’s already time for another international break. Premier League football has once again been suspended for a fortnight as the Euro 2020 qualifying matches draw to a close, with a few sides still having everything to play for.

In all, there are eight United players in senior action: Harry Maguire, Marcus Rashford and Dean Henderson (England); Kieran O’Hara (Republic of Ireland); Victor Lindelöf (Sweden); David de Gea (Spain); and Daniel James and Dylan Levitt (Wales). Scott McTominay (Scotland) would also have been among them, but he has withdrawn with an ankle injury.

Spain have already booked their place at next year’s tournament and England need only a draw from their two remaining games to seal qualification, but others don’t have it quite so easy.

Ireland currently sit top of their group but still have work to do in their crucial clash with Denmark. Their Scandinavian neighbours Sweden know that a win over Romania would almost certainly be enough to qualify, given that they host the Faroe Islanders in their final match. Wales have the most difficult task of all: they need to beat Azerbaijan and Hungary to guarantee qualification, or else hope for making it through a nervy playoff.
