Globetrotting Rovers

When called up for the England U21`s David Bentley today became the 15th Blackburn Rovers player to be called up for his respective country. He joins others at levels from U19 through to Full International for next weeks International friendlies or Championship Qualifiers.

Sergio Peter earned his first call-up for Germany at U21 level. Only Stephen Thompson`s U19 Scotland call-up is merely for a training camp, the others will all involve friendly or competitive games.

Players will have various degrees of travelling to undertake, ranging from literally none at all with games in England and other home nations to Africa, with Australia being the furthest a field. Full list as follows:

Full Internationals
Brett Emerton - Australia (AFC Cup verses Kuwait)
Lucas Neill - Australia (AFC Cup verses Kuwait)
Peter Enckelman - Finland (Friendly verses Northern Ireland)
Shefki Kuqi - Finland (Friendly verses Northern Ireland)
Zurab Khizanishvili - Georgia (European Championship Qualifier verses Faroe Islands)
Morten Gamst Pedersen - Norway (Friendly verses Brazil)
Steven Reid - Republic of Ireland (Friendly verses Netherlands)
Benni McCarthy - South Africa (Friendly verses Namibia)
Aaron Mokoena - South Africa (Friendly verses Namibia)
Jason Brown - Wales (Friendly verses Bulgaria)

U21 Internationals
David Bentley - England (European Championship Qualifier verses Moldova)
Sergio Peter - Germany (Friendly verses Netherlands)
Jay McEveley - Scotland (European Championship Qualifier verses Slovenia)

U19 Internationals
Stephen Thomson - Scotland (Training Camp)

15 International call-ups is a very impressive number and will no doubt please Mark Hughes, so long as all report back unharmed!
