Villarreal international players in action

Sorry I'm late to the party here, but here is a list of our callups and where and when they're playing

Cedric Bakambu--DR Congo.  They defeated Burundi 3-2 Thursday; Cedric played all 90 minutes.  The return leg in this second round, World Cup qualification (Africa) is Sunday November 15.

Denis Suarez and Samu Castillejo were both included in La Rojita, the Spanish u-21 team that defeated Georgia handily today 5-0.  Suarez played 58 minutes; I can't tell that Samu C played.  They play away to Croatia (current group leaders) November 17.

Jonathan dos Santos plays for the Mexican team that takes on El Salvador at the Azteca in Mexico City on Friday, and then plays in Honduras November 17.  These are both World Cup qualifiers: Mexico is in group A with El Salvador, Honduras and Canada, and the two top from that group go on to the famous CONCACAF "Hexagonal" round-robin.

Mario Gaspar is with the Spanish National Team--they take on England in a friendly in Alicante of all places, the Estadio José Rico Pérez where third-level Hércules currently play.  They'll follow that up with a Nov 17 friendly in Brussels against Belgium, currently the #1 ranked team in the world if you can believe that.

Congratulations!  Bona sort a tots, as they say in Vila-real!
