International Duty

Shaun Botterill

What summer holiday? A look ahead at which Whites will add to their international caps this week.

With a busy schedule of World Cup Qualifiers, Fulham’s finest are out to earn some international caps.

40-year-old goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer, who is yet to decide his future for The Whites, will be in action for Australia tomorrow in their World Cup Qualifier against Japan.

Defensive rock and club captain Brede Hangeland, will no doubt be adding to his cap collection when Norway take on Albania in Group E, this Friday.

Currently on 83 caps, Hangeland still has some way to go to catch fellow White and countryman, John Arne Riise, who retired recently from international duty, with a record 110 caps.

Bryan Ruiz will make his 53rd cap for Costa Rica when they host Honduras in a CONCAFCAF Qualifier this Friday.

Veteran midfielder Giorgos Karagounis will once again break Greece’s caps record of 124, if he is to feature in their Group G match against Lithuania.

On the other side of the scale, club youngster Kerim Frei came on in the 62nd minute for Turkey, in Tuesday’s thrilling 3-3 friendly with Latvia. Frei was also an unused substitute in Turkey’s friendly against Slovenia on Friday.

Alexander Kacaniklic made his 5th appearance for Sweden this evening in a friendly against Macedonia. Scoring in the 39th minute of their 1-0 win, the youngster will be brimming with confidence, and looks set to start in Sweden’s World Cup Group C Qualifier against Austria, this coming Friday.

Elsewhere, other friendly matches are to be staged this week. Phillippe Senderos, a player who has arguably broken into Fulham’s first eleven this year, will feature for Switzerland when they play Cyprus.

And reserve keeper, Neil Etheridge will also be in action for the Philippines when they play Hong Kong tomorrow.
