Now that the Run of Fixtures of Death™ has finally ended, the international break could not have come at a better time to give the Wanderers some breathing room after the Chelsea match before they take on Wigan Athletic. There are six Bolton Wanderers away on international duty this time around. Hit the jump to see just who they are.

 

Gary Cahill (or Geri Kejhil, as per the Montenegro v. England program)

Gaz made a splash in each of his last two appearances as he got on the scoresheet for England against Bulgaria and was part of the England side that kept  a clean sheet against Wales. Gary will be in the squad against Montenegro as the Three Lions continue their qualifying campaign. 

Ivan Klasnic

Klas was handed the start for Croatia in their 3-1 win over Malta the last time out but he failed to make an impact and was substituted at the half. The forward, who still leads Bolton's score tally with three goals despite missing the last two games during suspension, has been called up to face Greece and Latvia. If Croatia were to win out, they would qualify for the Euro 2012 tournament. 

Adam Bogdan

Bogdan didn't have the best showing against Chelsea but he's been named to the Hungary squad again and will likely serve as the backup keeper. He watched Hungary beat Sweden the last time out. They need a win over Finland to have a chance of finishing second in their group.

Gael Kakuta

The young, on loan winger has been named to France's U21 squad as they will face Kazakhstan and Romania in hopes of qualifying for the 2013 U-21 European Championships.

Mark Connolly

Connolly has joined up once again with the Republic of Ireland U21s for their match against Liechtenstein. He started for Ireland in their last match, a win against the Hungary U21s.

Dedryck Boyata

The other young loanee has been named to Belgium's squad for their game against Azerbaijan 

Here's hoping the lads all do well for their respective sides and come back uninjured.
