Jonathan Spector and Jacques Maghoma have both be called up to represent their countries in the upcoming internationals this week.
Spector has impressed at centre-half during Blues’ impressive unbeaten start to the campaign, and flew out to join Jurgen Klinsmann’s squad yesterday.
The USA face Peru in Washington D.C. in three days time before taking on Brazil at Foxborough, Massachusetts on 8th September.
Spector returns to the American setup for the first time since featuring as an unused substitute in the 2-0 defeat to Ukraine in March 2014. However his last cap was in the historic 1-0 win against Italy in Genoa in February, 2012. He has put his mark on Gary Rowett’s team plans and has done well so far this season – his performances having won him several man of the match awards.
Also been given a chance to impress on the international stage is Blues winger Jacques Maghoma who has been called up by his country Congo.
The scorer of Blues’ second goal in the 2-0 win at MK Dons on Saturday, will take part in the African Cup of Nations qualifier this weekend, against Central African Republic in Bangui.
Securing his first league goal for the club, he believes the good form will carry on after the break. Here’s him speaking to Blues TV:
This news comes just days after it was announced that David Cotterill, Demarai Gray and Reece Brown would also be representing their home nations.
