Juan Carlos Paredes has joined the list of Watford players away on international duty this week.

Having impressed during the World Cup, the wing-back has been included in the Ecuador squad to face Bolivia in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on Saturday.

The first Hornets players who could be international action are Daniel Pudil and Matej Vydra, as the Czech Republic are due to face USA in a friendly tonight, before they open up their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign against Netherlands on Wednesday, September 9.

Gabriel Tamas has been recalled to the Romanian international squad and they start their European qualification against Greece on Sunday, the same day as Ikechi Anya will be hoping to be involved for Scotland when they take on world champions Germany, while Daniel Tozser could come up against club-mate Craig Cathcart when Hungary meet Northern Ireland.

Lloyd Doyley is in the Jamaica squad for their friendly against Canada on Monday, while in the younger age groups Jonathan Bond is on England Under-21 duty, Tommie Hoban is with Republic of Ireland Under-21s and Josh Doherty is in the Northern Ireland Under-19 squad.

Brilliant, just what we need. A player going on an international break who will undoubtedly return arrogant and probably thinking he is too good for Watford. No player is bigger than Watford club and Paredes should be reminded of this.

Paredes is already an international. He played in the World Cup. Indeed without being one, would we have got the international clearance for him to play ? (Even though that was secured via our Spanish sister club).

As an international, I suspect if he thought he was too good for Watford, he would not have come here in the first place and chosen the only slightly bigger club that were reportedly after his services - Juventus.

I imagine a nice pay check was involved in his decision rather than passion for the club.

You really are a Tozser ... he JOINED Watford having played at a World Cup. How much bigger of a stage for his talents was there than that and he has been an admirable team player since arrival

I am sure he is paid handsomely for his talents. Definitely more than I and possibly you will ever earn, but I cannot believe that we offered him more money than Juventus and that was therefore the basis of his decision. More likely career progression - English footie being a good stage.

As regards passion for the club, I suspect he doesn't have much .....yet. But look at the passion that Pudil, Fessi, Almen and other recent recruits have for the club, which I am 100% sure they did not have when then joined.

And before this gets turned into an overpaid foreigners debate, do you think any of the following had a 'passion' for the club when they joined the club: Cliff Holton, Graham Taylor, John Barnes, Ross Jenkins, Troy even (4 legends and one soon to be one)... no that affection grows over time as an affinity develops with the fans and the club. And few are fans of WFC, the last significant player/fan I remember was David Connelly and look where that ended.

Fortunately, our club is renowned for its friendliness - something I for one am proud of. Ex-players seem to have a genuine affection for us and rarely speak ill of their time at the Vic. Even those like Derek Payne who spent a relatively short time with us.
