The international window is up this week and hopefully we won’t suffer the same problems as the previous break when Jill Roord came back with an injury that has kept her out of the team so far.
Here are all the Gunners called-up, along with where and when they will play their Euro 2022 qualifiers and friendlies.
Ireland: Katie McCabe

A must win game for the Republic of Ireland to stay in the direct qualifying race via the best runner-up placings. They will have to go through the play-offs if they don’t finish in the top three groups runner-ups.
England: Leah Williamson, Beth Mead

Group decider against France in Wiener Neustadt on 27 Oct as the winner will take a good option on first place and qualification.
Netherlands: Danielle van de Donk, Vivianne Miedema
🔶 | Sarina Wiegman heeft 2⃣4⃣ spelers geselecteerd voor de EK-kwalificatiewedstrijden tegen Estland en Kosovo.
— OranjeLeeuwinnen (@oranjevrouwen) October 13, 2020
They have a double header against Estonia (23 Oct) and Kosovo (27 Oct) and will look to qualify for the tournament in the Kosovo game as they need four points from six to go through.
Scotland: Jennifer Beattie, Kim Little – withdrawn
Shelley Kerr has named her Scotland squad for our @UEFAWomensEURO qualifiers later this month.

They need to win away to Romania before the decider away to Belgium in November. They are currently one point ahead of them.
No injured players have been called up except Maritz as she was injured after the Swiss squad was published.
With no game before the Conti Cup group game against London City Lionesses on 4 November, a good number of players should be on the mend ahead of a busy November.
