Some of the Manchester United players are currently on international duty for their countries, while others are on a holiday with their loved ones.
We’ll be looking at some of the international reds on duty for their countries this month. The South American countries will be playing matches this week and we all know that the AFCON 2021 is also going on.
Fred Rodriguez And Alex Telles (Brazil)
Manchester United left-back Alex Telles has been recognized by the Brazilian manager after an impressive start under German Ralf Rangnick.
You could see that Alex Telles usually get a call-up to the Brazil national team when he was playing for Porto, but after he made a move to the premier league under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Brazilian left-back failed to get more playing time due to the form of Luke Shaw and one of the reasons why he is not playing is because of the premier league experience.
He needed more time to adapt to the league and we could see that some players have gone through the same situation. Alex Telles is now one of the most important players at the club.
Luke Shaw has been out injured and he is currently the first choice left-back. Ralf Rangnick will make a strong decision if Luke Shaw makes his return back from injury.
Fred Rodriguez is currently on international duty for the Brazil national team. He also became one of the most important players in the team after his performance in the Copa America.
He will surely start their next two matches in the World Cup Qualifiers. Alex Telles and Fred Rodriguez are the two Brazilian reds.
Facundo Pellistri And Edinson Cavani (Uruguay)
Edinson Cavani came from the bench to create magic against West Ham United. He made a massive impact immediately after he came on in the second half.
He is currently on international duty for his country and well all know how important he is to the team. Edinson Cavani is an experienced player and he is undropable.
Some of the Manchester United fans will never know who is Facundo Pellistri because the Uruguayan youngster is yet to make his first team debut in the premier league.
He joined Manchester United under the management of Ole Gunnar, but the Norwegian manager didn’t give him the chance in the first team.
Facundo Pellistri is currently on loan at Alaves in the Spanish League and he has gained a call-up to the national team after his impressive performances.
Eric Bailly And Hannibal Mejbri (Ivory Coast And Tunisia)
The two Manchester United players are currently on the AFCON international duty for their countries. Both players secured a qualification to the next round of the tournament.
Eric Bailly couldn’t feature in the round of 16 game for his country due to the injury that he suffered, but he is back and fit to play.
Zidane Iqbal (Iraq)
The Manchester United academy player could make his debut for the Iraq national team this month. He was invited to the national team duty for his country.
