Giorgi Chakvetadze will be hoping to help make history with Georgia as they bid to reach the finals of a major tournament for the first time.

The 24-year-old attacking midfielder is one of six Watford players who have been called up by their countries for the final international break of the season and he will be hoping to feature in two European Championship play-offs as Georgia aim to secure their place in Germany this summer.

To do so they must first beat Luxembourg in Thursday’s semi-final in Tbilisi, which kicks-off at 5pm.

If they win that, the Georgians will be back at the Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena on Tuesday to face either Greece or Kazakhstan to determine which nation is heading to the finals.

Scotland have already booked their flight to Germany and Ryan Porteous will be aiming to cement his place in Steve Clarke’s squad in two friendlies.

A difficult test against the Netherlands in Amsterdam on Friday (kick-off 7.45pm) is first up before the Scots return to Hampden Park to take on Northern Ireland on Tuesday.

That could see Porteous line up on opposing sides against teammate Jamal Lewis, who will also be hoping to making the starting XI for Friday’s friendly in Bucharest against Romania (7.45pm).

Having played in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Ismael Kone is hoping to help Canada reach this summer’s Copa America.

Standing in their way are Trinidad and Tobago at the Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas, on Saturday (8pm).

Yaser Asprilla is preparing for two friendlies with Colombia but neither involve a long journey back to South America.

They first take on Spain at the London Stadium on Friday (8.30pm) before travelling to the Spanish capital to face Romania on Tuesday (7.30pm).

Ryan Andrews has been called up for the England Men’s Elite League Squad for a fourth successive time and they travel to Poland Under-20s on Friday (4.45pm) before making the journey to the Czech Republic on Tuesday (2pm).
