With a total of 15 players representing Juventus in the international break, the Bianconeri can be found dispersed across the globe participating in a number of fixtures, tournaments and qualifiers.
The first players to take to the field yesterday was Rodrigo Bentancur and Martin Carceres, who both turned out for Uruguay in the 2019 China Cup. Both of Massiliano Allegri’s men turned out for their country, as they helped Uruguay claim a 3-0 victory over Uzbekistan. Bentancur featured for 70 minutes, while Caceres saw out the full 90.
Just weeks after the Champions League fixture against Atletico Madrid, Paulo Dybala returned to Wanda Metropolitano, this time with his Argentina teammates. The attacker, unfortunately, wasn’t on the receiving end of any game time, as La Albiceleste fell to a 3-1 loss in a friendly to Venezuela.
Moving over into Eastern Europe, Blaise Matuidi continued his success with France when they strolled to an impressive 4-1 away win over Moldova in their UEFA Euro Qualifiers. The midfielder featured for 73 minutes in the game (with the scoreline 3-0 at the time), as he was replaced by Thauvin.
Elsewhere, Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal officially began their defence of their 2016 UEFA Euro crown when both he and Joao Cancelo took to the field against Ukraine. Both Bianconeri talents featured in the full game for Selecção das Quinas, however, it ended in a goalless draw.
Tonight, a total of six Juventus could turn out for Italy tonight, with Mattia Perin, Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci, Leonardo Spinazzola, Federico Bernardeschi and Moise Kean all called up to face Finland in the Euro Qualifiers.
That’s not all though, Miralem Pjanic and Bosnia are set to face Armenia, while Alex Sandro and Brazil will take on Panama in the early hours of Sunday morning.
All the best to them!
