Internationals: Who’s playing where this summer?
Manchester City may be represented at no fewer than five international tournaments this summer.

Twenty-one players from our men and women’s teams have received call-ups so far, though there could yet be more as some nations are still to confirm their competition squads.

City players will feature at the Women’s World Cup, the UEFA Nations League, the Copa America, the African Cup of Nations and the European U21 Championships, while a further five have also been selected for Euro 2020 qualifying matches.

Take a look below to see who is playing where this summer…

Ten of Nick Cushing’s squad have been selected by their national team.

Seven of those players will represent England, with Karen Bardsley, Steph Houghton, Jill Scott, Georgia Stanway, Demi Stokes, Keira Walsh and Ellen White, who officially joins the Club on 1 July, all called up by Phil Neville.

The Lionesses' tournament kicks-off against Scotland on 9 June, who have Jen Beattie, and Caroline Weir in their ranks.

Sterling is in line to win his 50th cap when the Three Lions face the Netherlands in the semi-finals on 6 June.

Should they win, England will face Bernardo Silva’s Portugal or Switzerland in the final or third place play-off on 9 June.

African Cup of Nations

Algeria are yet to name their squad for the tournament, but Riyad Mahrez scored twice in qualification, and is likely to be on the plane to Egypt.

Their pre-tournament training camp begins on 3 June, with the first friendly scheduled for 11 June in Doha, which the City winger is expected to be involved in before the tournament starts on 23 June.
