The international break is here, and numerous Tottenham Hotspur players are involved with their national teams, either in EURO or World Cup qualifying matches, CONCACAF Cup matches, or international friendlies. Here's a breakdown of some of the upcoming matches that feature Spurs players.

Yesterday

Portugal 1-0 Denmark (EURO Qualifier)

Christian Eriksen started and played much of the match, but his Denmark side now needs Albania to draw or lose to Armenia to automatically qualify for the EUROS in 2016.

France 4-0 Armenia (Friendly)

Hugo Lloris started and captained France, and was reportedly never really challenged.

Today (Friday)

England vs. Estonia, 2:45 pm ET (EURO Qualifier)

Harry Kane is expected to start this match for Roy Hodgson's match, and fellow Hotspurs Andros Townsend, Dele Alli, and Kyle Walker are all in the England squad. England have already automatically qualified for the EUROS.

Montenegro vs. Austria, 2:45 pm ET (EURO Qualifier)

Kevin Wimmer will also likely start and feature for Austria, which like England has already qualified for EURO 2016.

Saturday

Andorra vs. Belgium, 2:45 pm (EURO Qualifier)

Nacer Chadli, Jan Vertonghen, and Toby Alderweireld are all in Marc Wilmots' side, which are a point behind Wales in EURO qualifying group B. Both Belgium and Wales both have at minimum qualified for the playoffs, and are jockeying for position at this point.

Bosnia & Herzegovina vs. Wales, 2:45 pm ET (EURO Qualifier)

Speaking of Wales, Ben Davies will likely start, probably in central defense, and we'll also see what's-his-name, you know, that guy at Madrid.

Mexico vs. USA, 9:00 pm ET (CONCACAF Cup)

On-loan fullback DeAndre Yedlin is in the USMNT's squad vs arch-rivals Mexico. The winner of this match represents CONCACAF in the 2017 Confederations Cup.

Sunday

Denmark vs. France, 2:45 pm ET (Friendly)

Hey look, it's Hugo Lloris AND Christian Eriksen, in a meaningless match! Please don't get injured.

Monday

Lithuania vs. England, 2:45 pm ET (EURO Qualifier)

What's better than a dead-rubber match against a former Balkan Baltic state? An away match against a former Balkan Baltic state! No idea what Roy Hodgson will do here, but it wouldn't shock me to see Dele Alli get some not insignificant minutes.

Austria v. Liechtenstein, 12:00 pm ET (EURO Qualifier)

I'm running out of things to say. Kevin Wimmer will play, maybe.

Tuesday

Belgium v. Israel, 2:45 pm ET (EURO Qualifier)

Belgium actually has something to play for during this match, so depending on the results of their prior game this could be significant for qualification or seeding.

Wales v. Andorra, 2:45 pm ET (EURO Qualifier)

Ibid. See above.

USA vs. Costa Rica, 6:00 pm ET (Friendly)

Because when it's Rivalry Week for the USMNT, why not schedule Costa Rica after Mexico?

Paraguay v. Argentina, 8:00 pm ET (World Cup qualifying, CONMEBOL)

Erik Lamela is in the Argentina side, replacing the injured Lionel Messi. No pressure, Erik.
