The international break is upon us, but worry not. With the UEFA Nations League in full swing, there’s plenty of soccer to carry us through to the 17th of October when BVB resume play against Hoffenheim, and many Borussia Dortmund players will be represented. Here’s a quick breakdown of who will play, and when.

The BVB Twitter account has done part of my job for me by posting this:

UEFA Nations League

The Nations League is always entertaining because it’s an actual competition during the international break, and the players are usually very committed to winning. The big match that I’m looking forward to is Belgium vs England. Meunier and Witsel will suit up for the Red Devils against Jadon Sancho and England next Sunday at 12 pm EST. On the same day, Raphael Guerreiro will likely lace up for Portugal against France at 2:45 pm EST.

Manuel Akanji and Switzerland will also face a tough opponent, Spain, on Saturday at 2:45 EST.

Emre Can, Julian Brandt, Mahmoud Dahoud, and Nico Schulz have been called up for Germany and will face Ukraine on Saturday at 2:45 PM EST.

Thomas Delaney has been called up to the Danish national team and will face Iceland at 2:45 PM on Sunday, and finally Erling Haaland and Norway will face Romania on Sunday at noon EST.
