Round-up: Eight Canaries players on the international stage

EIGHT Norwich City players will see action on the international scene over the coming days, representing their nations across the age ranges.

We'll bring you updates right here, on Twitter and Facebook.

Switzerland U21 vs Scotland U21: November 18, 17:30 - Thun, Switzerland

City U21s star Cameron King will celebrate his first call-up for Scotland when he runs out for the U21s against Switzerland on Tuesday.

King stole the show in front of a record crowd for a Barclays U21 Premier League game in October, scoring twice as City beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 at Carrow Road.

Romania vs Northern Ireland: November 14, 19:45 - Bucharest, Romania

The City forward stole the headlines during the October international break, scoring three goals in three games to help keep Northern Ireland's dreams of Euro 2016 qualification alive and well. He won the Man of the Match award for his performance in Northern Ireland's impressive 2-0 win over Greece.

He'll be looking to impress once more away to Romania on Friday, and keep his side at the summit of their qualifying group.

Jamaica vs Martinique: November 12, 01:00 - Montego Bay, Jamaica
Jamaica vs Antigua and Barbuda: November 14, 01:00 - Montego Bay, Jamaica
Jamaica vs Haiti: November 16, 01:00 - Montego Bay, Jamaica
(If group runner-up) Jamaica vs TBC: November 17, 22:00 - Montego Bay, Jamaica
(If group winner) Jamaica vs TBC: November 18, 01:00 - Montego Bay, Jamaica

Young Norwich striker Jamar Loza was first called up for the senior Jamaica side in June this year, and now takes part in his first significant tournament.

The Caribbean Cup will see eight of CONCACAF's Caribbean nations compete in two groups, the winners of which will go on to compete in the final on 18 November. Hosts Jamaica will be confident going into the competition, having won the tournament three of the five times they've hosted it before.

Scotland vs Rep. Ireland: November 14, 19:45 - Celtic Park, Scotland
Scotland vs England: November 18, 20:00 - Celtic Park, Scotland

City captain Russell Martin and right-back Steven Whittaker, mainstays in the Scottish defence, face two intense battles at Celtic Park over the coming days against rival home nations sides.

First they take on Republic of Ireland, seeking to continue a run of solid performances that have kept them in in the race for Euro 2016 qualification. They gave world champions Germany a scare in their own backyard (and are level with them on points so far), before defeating Georgia and drawing away at Poland. And then it's England. A 'friendly'.

England U20 vs Canada U20: November 12, 19:30 - Bournemouth, England
Portugal U20 vs England U20: November 17, 14:30 - Coimbra, Portugal

City Academy starlet Josh Murphy missed out on the England U20s action through injury last time out. He was replaced in the side by twin Jacob as Aidy Boothroyd's side beat Germany and the Netherlands on the way to winning the Four Nations Tournament in October.

But he returns now to face Canada at home this week before travelling to Coimbra to play Portugal on Monday.

England U21 vs Portugal U21:
November 13, 19:45 - Burnley, England
France U21 vs England U21: November 17, 20:00 - Brest, France

Winger Nathan Redmond played a full part in securing qualification for England's U21s in victory over Croatia over two legs in October. They now face one of the teams they'll be up against in the Czech Republic next summer - Portugal - and another that, perhaps surprisingly, they won't - France.

Norway vs Estonia:
November 12, 19:00 - Oslo, Norway
Azerbaijan vs Norway: November 16, 17:00 - Baku, Azerbaijan

Midfielder Alex Tettey played 78 and 90 minutes respectively for Norway against Malta and Bulgaria in October. Two wins that give them hope of securing a berth at Euro 2016. After testing themselves in a friendly against Estonia at home on Wednesday, they make the long trip to group whipping boys Azerbaijan looking for another win.

Three points and a good goal tally could see Norway move to second in the qualifying group, given that Italy and Croatia - the top two teams, both on 9 points - play each other the same day.
