As Huddersfield Town head into the international break, six of their players have been called up for international duty with their respective countries.

One of the downsides to being a top flight team, is that your star players will be picked for their countries for international matches.

The experience is new to head coach David Wagner, but one that he will have to get used to. Here we take a look at the forthcoming internationals and who will be playing where

Aaron Mooy

​The Australian has once again been selected for the Socceroos as they face play off qualification for the World Cup in Russia 2018. Had the Aussies been able to finish in second place in their group they would have already qualified and Aaron Mooy would not be needed to try and get them there.

The Socceroos will play off against Syria, the first leg will be held in Malaysia on October 5th due to the instability of Syria itself, with the return leg will be held in Sydney on October 10th. If the Australians defeat Syria the next international break will see them having to play again in the play off final.

Wagner is hoping that Mooy will not be too exhausted after all the travelling - he said ​"What I wished was that they would be already qualified and that he was not going again to play Syria"

"They will then have to play the next opponent in the next international break in the final.

He went on to say: “If Aaron has a chance to play in the World Cup then I will be very happy for him.

“This is as well something I only have to accept and deal with" The German said.  "It is not something I can wish and then it happens"
