Chung-Yong Lee handed international dates, three more expect calls

Chris Brunskill

The football world had an international break just a week-and-a-half ago and another one is coming up quickly. Unlike the mid-August date, the upcoming September will be (mostly) full of matches that actually count for something and not just international friendlies that will see players flying halfway across the world for a kickabout. One Bolton players has already been confirmed as participating for his national team while three others are very likely to get calls.

Chung-Yong Lee will once again fly to Korea for his September international fixtures, having been selected for the squad. The two matches, one against Haiti and another versus Croatia, will be held in Incheon and Jeonju on the 6th and 10th of September,  respectively. Korea have already secured their spot in the 2014 World Cup and will just play tune-up matches from this point on.

Medo Kamara's Sierra Leone team have just one match to play during the date: a World Cup qualifier against Equatorial Guinea in Freetown. The match is ultimately a meaningless one with Sierra Leone having been mathematically eliminated from contention with no chance of making it into the next round.

Adam Bogdan's Hungary have a pair of World Cup qualifiers to play that week, traveling to Bucharest to take on Romania on the 6th and then hosting Estonia on the 10th in Budapest. Hungary still have a very good chance of making the World Cup, sitting in second place in their group. They won't catch the Netherlands but are a point above Romania and four above Turkey. Should they hold onto second place, Hungary will be drawn into the eight-team second round where they will play a two-legged pair of matches against one of the other group runners up, to be played in November.

Finally, Craig Davies' Wales also have a pair of World Cup Qualifiers to play. They will travel to Skopje to take on Macedonia on the 6th of September before hosting Serbia in Cardiff on the 10th. With four group matches left to play, Wales have a nearly impossible task ahead of them as they sit 10 points behind second-place Croatia.
