After this weekend's Premier League fixtures we come upon the usual two week international break. Why FIFA feels the need to put a two week vacation this close to the beginning of the league season and the end of the transfer window I will never understand, but it's a thing so we have to deal with it. Manager Roy Hodgson has selected Jermain Defoe and Kyle Walker for England's World Cup Qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine.

Defoe scored in England's last match against Italy, which, by the way, happened a little more than two weeks ago (I hate international football). The Tottenham striker's next cap will be his 50th for England. Walker, meanwhile, will be looking to add to his total of 3 caps.

Also, in case you missed it, earlier this week Steven Caulker, Danny Rose and Adam Smith were called up for England Under-21s Euro qualifiers against Azerbaijan and Norway.
