Read Time:2 Minute, 31 Second

From World Cup qualifiers to European playoffs, there are some big fixtures coming up in November and many LaLiga stars will be at the centre of them.

Yunus Musah – Valencia CF (United States)

There is a lot of buzz around Valencia’s 17-year-old midfielder Yunus Musah, who just became the second-youngest scorer in the club’s history when he netted against Getafe in a LaLiga Santander match. Eligible to represent England, Ghana, Italy and the USA at senior level (he’s played for England’s U15, U16, U17 and U18 sides), the teenager has been called up by Gregg Berhalter for the USMNT’s friendlies against Wales and Panama this week and could be set make a long-awaited and highly touted debut.

Marcos Llorente – Atletico Madrid (Spain)

The Spanish national team will play three matches in this international break, a friendly against the Netherlands and Nations League fixtures against Switzerland and Germany. One of the Spain players to watch over the international week is Marcos Llorente, who has been called up to the senior squad for the first time as a reward for his excellent performances for AAatleti throughout 2020. It’ll be worth watching La Roja’s matches to see if Luis Enrique hands Llorente his debut.

Jose Maria Gimenez – Atletico de Madrid (Uruguay)

There are two rounds of South American World Cup qualifying taking place in this international break and Uruguay have arguably the toughest pair of fixtures this month: first away at Colombia and then at home to Brazil. José Maria Gimenez is back in the squad after missing out on the October fixtures due to the coronavirus and will need to be at the very top of his game as he and his teammates go up against some of the very best forwards in the world.

Takefusa Kubo – Villarreal CF (Japan)

Takefusa Kubo has been called up by Japan for their friendlies against Panama and Mexico and he’ll link up with his international teammates keen to score his first goal for his country. The winger, who is currently on loan at Villarreal from Real Madrid, has played 354 minutes across nine matches for his senior national team so far, but is still waiting for that elusive first goal. Considering he goes into this international break in excellent form, he’ll be confident of netting that special first goal this November.

Getafe CF’s Nemanja Maksimović and Sevilla FC’s Nemanja Gudelj– (Serbia)

The finals of the qualification playoffs for next summer’s European Championship are taking place in the November international break and several LaLiga players have been called up by Serbia for their clash with Scotland. Getafe’s Nemanja Maksimović and Sevilla’s Nemanja Gudelj are the most likely of the LaLiga group to start and they formed Serbia’s doble pivot in defensive midfield in the 2-1 victory over Norway last time out. Eibar’s Marko Dmitrović, Almería’s Nikola Maraš and Real Madrid’s Luka Jović are also in the squad.
