West Ham Dozen on International duty

Jose-Fonte-762210A host of West Ham players are set for international duty next week.

Jose Fonte and Portugal have their fate in their own hands in Group B, knowing victories in Andorra and at home to Edimilson Fernandes in Switzerland will almost certainly seal their place at Russia 2018.

Marko Arnatuovic and Austria face two must-win Group D ties at home to Serbia in Vienna on Friday 6 October and away in Moldova three days later. Austria sit fourth in Group D, five points behind Wales and four behind the Republic of Ireland.

Mexico have already sealed their place at Russia 2018 and can complete the CONCACAF Round 5 campaign unbeaten if they avoid defeat in their final two qualifiers.

In Africa, Diafra Sakho and Cheikhou Kouyate have been included in the Senegal squad for a World Cup African qualifying Group D fixture in the Cape Verde Islands..
