Manchester United’s Tyrell Malacia and Wout Weghorst have been called up to represent the Netherlands in the forthcoming international break.
The pair both travelled to the World Cup, though Weghorst had not completed his loan move to United at that point.
Malacia did not feature at all throughout the tournament and was only an unused substitute, so hopefully he gets the chance to actually play in the upcoming matches.
Netherlands take on France on Friday, March 24 in an away clash at the Stade de France, before facing Gibraltar in a home meeting at De Kuip.

Reds on international duty
Several other Reds will jet off to represent their nations, including Marcus Rashford for England, Facundo Pellistri for Uruguay and Lisandro Martinez for reigning world champions Argentina – amongst other players.
Fingers crossed they all return fit and ready for club action to resume. After Sunday’s FA Cup quarter-final, United’s next fixture is a trip to St. James’ Park in a league clash with Newcastle.
