Septet on international duty

VfL’s international players will be involved in up to three World Cup qualifiers in the coming days.

Wout Weghorst, Renato Steffen, Koen Casteels, Ridle Baku and John Anthony Brooks did not have much time to rest after Sunday’s 1-0 victory at home to RB Leipzig. The VfL quintet, along with teammate Anselmo Garcia MacNulty, have all been called up by their respective national teams for September’s World Cup qualifiers. The seventh Wolves player set to feature for his country is Dodi Lukebakio, who has only just joined the club on loan from Hertha. Injured duo Xaver Schlager and Kevin Mbabu have had to withdraw from international duty.
