Internationals: Which Chelsea players are away?

From the official Chelsea FC website:

The first international break of the new season is upon us and as ever there are plenty of Chelsea players preparing to represent their countries.

Qualifying matches take centre stage in Europe, Africa and South America, with a European Championships and Africa Cup of Nations on the horizon, and CONMEBOL qualification for the next World Cup getting underway.

A blockbuster midfield clash between Enzo’s Argentina and Moises Caicedo’s Ecuador is one of several standout fixtures involving our Blues, while Ian Maatsen will be hoping to make his Netherlands debut, and Levi Colwill his England bow, having both been called up to the senior squad for the first time.
