Which Manchester United players could be in action on the final day of the international break

Manchester United could have five players in action on Tuesday, March 28 on international duty.

The final international break of the season is on its final day and club football resumes this weekend (thank goodness). The Reds take on Newcastle United this Sunday at St. James’ Park and a win could really cement our place in the top four, whilst a loss could put the Magpies above us in third.

Today, five Reds could feature for their national teams before returning to Old Trafford in the coming days.

Argentina take on Curacao in a friendly clash at home, meaning Lionel Scaloni could opt to deploy Lisandro Martinez. The centre-back played 45 minutes as a substitute last Thursday against Panama, with him picking up a clean sheet as the world champions saw out a 2-0 win.

Scotland face a difficult EURO 2024 qualifying tie with Spain at Hampden Park. Scott McTominay made a 23-minute cameo against Cyprus on Saturday and netted a brace, so he may be awarded a start after his instant impact contributed to the 3-0 victory.

AFCON qualification continues for Ivory Coast when they play away to Comoros and loanees Eric Bailly and Amad Diallo were called up to the squad at the start of the break. The defender started last game and played for 86 minutes, whilst youngster Amad was an unused substitute.

Tunisia have an away trip to Libya on the cards to continue their Africa Cup of Nations qualifying journey. The teams also played each other on Friday at the Stade Olympique de Rades, with Tunisia winning by three goals to nil. United loanee Hannibal Mejbri featured in the clash.

Uruguay have made the trip to Seoul to face South Korea in a friendly, having overseen a 1-1 draw with Japan last Friday. Facundo Pellistri started the game and played 68 minutes, which will be valuable experience for the youngster, and he will likely start again today.
