International Bluebirds set for Premier League return

After worldwide travel Cardiff welcome back their international players.

David Marshall, after two starts for Scotland (against Belgium and Macedonia) is the main injury worry. 

He came back from Macedonia with a hip injury after playing 45 mins of the game in Skopje. Craig Conway, left out of the City 25 man Premier League squad, was an unused sub in both games.

Craig Bellamy played two games for Wales as they lost away at Macedonia and at CCS to Serbia. Declan John was an unused sub in both those games.

Gary Medel (pictured) helped Chile to a fine 3 - 0 World Cup qualifying win over Venezuela (a result that sees Chile close in on a place in Brazil 14) and then played the full match as Chile drew 2 - 2 with Spain in a friendly in Geneva on Tuesday.

Rudy Gestede played 90 mins for Benin on the weekend.

Kim Bo Kyung played 90 mins as South Korea lost at home to Croatia in a friendly on Tuesday. Last Friday he came off the bench as SK beat Haiti.

Aron Gunnarsson skippered Iceland to four points from six as Iceland edge near to a World Cup play off place. Iceland drew 4 - 4 with Switzerland on Friday and beat Albania 2 - 1 on Tuesday.

Steven Caulker was an unused sub as England drew 0 - 0 in Ukraine on Tuesday. He was ruled out of the 4 - 0 win over Moldova last Friday with a slight injury.
