Sitting at the bottom of League One and 10 points adrift, Reading fans will be grateful for the week off as international fixtures take centre stage.

However, there is no rest for a handful of players, with seven hopeful of making an impact for their nations on international duty.

Take a look below at those scattered around the globe.

Reading Chronicle:

Tyler Bindon, New Zealand

The teenage centre-back made his debut for New Zealand in the last international break, appearing twice from the bench.

With matches against Greece and the Republic of Ireland in the next 10 days, the former LAFC youngster may hope to earn his first start for the All Whites.

Reading Chronicle:

Jeriel Dorsett, Montserrat

Another young defender, Dorsett had a recent run in the first-team with starts against Bristol Rovers and Shrewsbury Town.

With two caps to his name, Dorsett could feature against Dominican Republic and Barbados.

Reading Chronicle:

Tivonge Rushesha, Zimbabwe

A summer signing for the Academy, the former Swansea City midfielder has impressed in cup matches under Ruben Selles.

Earning his first call-up this month, he could make his debut against Nigeria after working up through the ranks with Wales youth.

Reading Chronicle:

Charlie Savage, Wales Under-21

A regular for Reading since making the move from Manchester United in the summer, Savage earned his full debut for Wales during the last international break against Gibraltar.

Back with the Under-21s, he will be a key member of the side looking to qualify for the European Championships against Iceland.

Reading Chronicle:

Nelson Abbey, England Under-20

Possibly the most impressive Reading player of the season to date, the 20-year-old has regularly been wearing the captain's armband for his boyhood club this season.

Being rewarded for his displays with an Under-20 call-up last month, he could make his third and/or fourth appearance in matches against Italy and Germany.

Reading Chronicle:

Dominic Ballard, England Under-19

A lethal striker at youth level for both England and Southampton, Ballard has hit the ground running while on loan in Berkshire, scoring five goals in 11 league and cup appearances to date.

Making his England Under-19 debut in September, the 18-year-old is now a crucial part of the team and has scored once. 

Facing three matches, Ballard could line up against Romania, Japan and/or Mexico.

Reading Chronicle:

Basil Tuma, Malta

Head Prefect at Harrow School, Tuma plays regularly for Selles in cup competitions since making his debut under Paul Ince last season.

Playing simultaneously for Under-19s and Under-21s, the forward could feature against Kazakhstan U21 and Kosovo U19.
