A dozen Stoke stars off on international duty

TWELVE members of Stoke City's first team squad have been called up to represent their countries during next week's international break.

Brek Shea has been recalled to the United States squad by Jurgen Klinsmann and he will join Geoff Cameron for away matches against Scotland and Austria.

Charlie Adam is amongst the Scots' squad for that clash at Hampden Park, as well as the away game against Norway, with Marko Arnautovic likely to be in the opposing Austria side for the second match in Vienna.

Those US games are both away from home but two Potters players will still be making the trip over to America.

Asmir Begovic and Bosnia-Herzegovina face Argentina in St Louis, whilst Wilson Palacios' Honduras come up against Brazil in Miami and then Ecuador in Houston.

In the Caribbean, Kenwyne Jones should once again skipper Trinidad & Tobago for a double header against Jamaica, with one game out in Montego Bay and the other back at Port of Spain.

Jon Walters, Glenn Whelan and Marc Wilson, meanwhile, will all form part of Martin O'Neill and Roy Keane's first Republic of Ireland squad for a home match with Latvia and an away game against Poland.

At Under-21 level, Jack Butland could once again line up for England as they host Finland and San Marino, whilst Bosnia-Herzegovina and Albania await Marc Muniesa in two trips for the Spanish.

These matches all form part of the qualification campaign for the 2015 Under-21 European Championships.
