Villarreal have five players competing at this winter’s 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

The Yellows are no strangers to having players representing the club on the international stage, though, they do have two less than expected for this World Cup.

Gerard Moreno was a surprise omission for Spain after recent injury issues, and Louis van Gaal somehow found it more fitting to select the unfit Memphis Depay over Arnaut Danjuma.

But there was plenty of good news, too, with Spain calling up Pau Torres and Yeremy Pino, while Argentina selected Geronimo Rulli and Juan Foyth.

Young Nicolas Jackson, who has made his breakthrough this season, also won a call-up to the Senegal squad.

So, there are five players to keep an eye out for at the World Cup, if you are watching, and we decided to put together a little guide of the group stage fixtures that could involve Villarreal stars.

Ahead of the big kick-off on Sunday, we have put together a guide of when you can catch the five Yellows in action. Just keep in mind that all times are in Spanish time.
