To many, the international break is an irritant time, one which drags you out of the full-throtle excitement of the football season, and forces you to endure (mostly) mundane and, at least at the moment, largely insignificant games.
However, for everybody connected to Bolton Wanderers it'll be a time of rest bite and an opportunity to step away from the toxic, mind bending issues of the club. It may also hopefully be a time in which Bolton spends looking for a new manager, but lets not get our hopes up.
Five Bolton players have been called up for international duty.
Despite having a centre back being deployed in his position instead of him on Wednesday, Medo Kamara, keeps his place in the Sierra Leone squad, for their two African Cup of Nations Qualifiers. Medo and his team will take on Group D leaders, Cameroon, twice in five days.
Winger Chung-yong Lee also got his obligatory call up, for South Korea's two friendlies, against Paraguay and Costa Rica.
Meanwhile, Tim Ream retains his spot in Jurgen Klinsmann's USA side, for their home friendlies against Honduras and Ecuador. You never know, Tim, you might get played in your actual position!
Elsewhere, loanee Chris Herd has been called up to the Australia team as they take on UAE and Qatar in friendlies and Conor Wilkinson has again been included in the Republic of Ireland u21 squad, as they come up against Norway in a friendly.
