These five players have a very high chance of carrying their form into the international break during the coming week.

Article Detail

Your favorite players will be donning their international colours during this week’s football action, as a vast number of international matches are coming up, including European qualifiers, World Cup qualifiers and international friendlies.

In an effort to simplify things for the Nostragamus fantasy players, we have narrowed down five picks for your dream team this week.

TAMMY ABRAHAM

Country: England

Matches: Czech Republic vs England

Tammy Abraham’s pace and strength makes him a lethal striker for any team. Before coming to Chelsea, he scored 25 goals in 37 appearances for Aston Villa. The 22-year-old, a product of Chelsea’s youth academy, returned to Stamford Bridge in style, scoring nine goals in 11 appearances in all competitions for the Blues.

He can be instrumental for England in their Group A match against Czech Republic alongside Tottenham’s star striker Harry Kane.

RAHEEM STERLING

Country: England

Matches: Czech Republic vs England

Raheem Sterling is looking in fine fettle whenever he comes out to play for Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in the Premier League. His ability to sprint past defenders enables him to create chances from the wing, and he frequently finds himself in scoring positions.

Sterling has six goals in seven appearances for City this season and given the English players’ form in the Premier League, they are looking good to beat Czech Republic in the Group A match.

BERNARDO SILVA

Country: Portugal

Matches: Portugal vs Luxembourg

Bernardo Silva’s contributions toward City and Portugal’s wins in the Premier League win and UEFA Nations League were deserving of an individual award, but unfortunately, he wasn’t even nominated in the top three. Apart from being a midfielder, Bernardo Silva has exceptional goal-scoring abilities. His hat-trick during City’s 8-0 win against Watford made a clear statement that he is no longer going to be an underrated player.

His role for Portugal will be to make chances for star striker Cristiano Ronaldo and prodigy Joao Felix. Facing Luxembourg won’t be a tough task for Portugal as they are high on confidence after winning the Nations League. At the same time, they desperately need to win the upcoming qualifier matches to be in second spot in Group B.

TRENT ALEXANDER ARNOLD

Country: England

Matches: Czech Republic vs England

Last season, the 20-year-old Liverpool right back’s support of Virgil Van Djik in the back line helped him maintain the record for not letting any player dribble past him. Also, his frequent deliveries from the right flank have become a consistent and dangerous weapon for Jurgen Klopp's side over the past few years.

He is another English player in this week’s list who can boast every fantasy player’s defence line, and create chances as well.

SANTI CAZORLA

Country: Spain

Matches: Norway vs Spain

Santi Cazorla is making a comeback to the Spanish National side after going through 11 separate operations. Once told he should be satisfied to even walk again’, Cazorla returned to the field in style and already has four goals and three assists in La Liga this season.

The 34-year-old can dictate games entirely at his pace and discretion. Equally gifted on either foot, he is both agile and destructive from a distance. He perfectly fits Luis Enrique’s style of play and will be keen to prove he’s still got it.
