With the World Cup looming large, teams have an opportunity to tinker with their strategy and player choices in the last international window before the Qatar event.

Club football will take a break before the onset of the Qatar World Cup, with national teams across the globe setting themselves for the international break.

In Europe, the UEFA Nationals League group stage heads to climax, with teams to play their last two games of the first round.

European champion, Italy, which surprisingly missed out on the World Cup, will host England on September 24. England will then host Germany three days later. Iberian rivals Spain and Portugal will lock horns on September 28.

Elsewhere South American giants Brazil and Argentina will play two friendlies each. Lionel Messi’s Argentina will have Jamaica and Honduras as its opponents, while Neymar’s Brazil will be up against Ghana and Tunisia.
