Arsenal head into the international break on high spirits after beating Manchester United in dramatic fashion. However, Mikel Arteta will hope that the 18 players on international break return without injury. With that being said, here’s a list of the 18 Arsenal players who will represent their countries. 

The 18 Arsenal players in action on international break

England (4) – Aaron Ramsdale, Bukayo Saka, Declan Rice & Eddie Nketiah

Eddie Nketiah has been given his first England call-up, which is warranted given his fine start to the season and his desire to reach the top level. He’s joined by Arsenal teammates Ramsdale, Saka and Rice.

Brazil (3) – Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Magalhaes & Gabriel Martinelli

The three Gabriels will represent Brazil during their international break. Magalhaes and Martinelli are no surprises since they have been in the squad for a while, but Jesus has been given a call up to the squad after Antony was dropped. Rather fitting given how the Arsenal vs United game went, if you ask me.

Belgium (1) – Leandro Trossard

Trossard is a valued member of the Belgium squad. So much so, he might have a better chance to get minutes there than with Arsenal this season.

Estonia (1) – Karl Hein

The third choice goalkeeper in North London, but Karl Hein could get some minutes for Estonia this international break, potentially coming up against Belgium and Trossard.

France (1) – William Saliba

Just like at the World Cup, William Saliba has been given a call-up to the French national team. Although, competition in the defence is heavy, so it remains to be seen if Saliba will play.

Germany (1) – Kai Havertz

Havertz has been struggling for form in North London, but he rarely struggles for his international team, hence his unsurprising call-up.

Iceland (1) – Runar Alex Runarsson

Currently out on loan, the goalkeeper who doesn’t seem to have a future under Mikel Arteta, might feature for Iceland.

Japan (1) – Takehiro Tomiyasu

A valuable squad member for Mikel Arteta, Tomiyasu will represent Japan as one of their best players.

Norway (1) – Martin Odegaard

He scored the equalising goal against Manchester United, now he will look to provide for Erling Haaland for his international team Norway.

Poland (1) – Jakub Kiwior

Kiwior, who is on the fringe of first-team football for Arsenal, has been called up by his beloved Poland. It’ll be a good chance for fans to see what he’s about.

Scotland (1) – Kieran Tierney

He’s obviously out on loan, but fans still love him. Tierney will represent his beloved Scotland this international break.

Spain (1) – David Raya

He’s yet to make his debut for Arsenal as a summer signing, but that doesn’t stop him from getting his international call-up with Spain.

Ukraine (1) – Oleksandr Zinchenko

Coming up against the England boys is the player who has recently returned from injury, Arsenal’s Oleksandr Zinchenko.
