Walsall manager Dean Smith has once again spoken to the club's official website, and has discussed the news that recent summer signings Jason Demetriou and Neil Etheridge have received international call-ups ahead of the resumption of the 2016 European and 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

Speaking to Saddlers.co.uk, Smith said; “I’m really pleased for them. Jason’s got two really tough games against two of the strongest teams in Europe right now, in Wales and Belgium.

“They’re really tough games but he’ll be looking forward to them; it’ll be a great experience for him. Neil’s going off around the world to play the Maldives and Uzbekistan, which is a little bit different to Jason. It’s great that they can both play for their countries.”

The duo are set to miss our upcoming matches against Morecambe, in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy, and Bury, in Sky Bet League 1.

Demetriou will link-up with Cyprus for their European Championship qualifiers against Wales and Belgium.

While Etheridge is in the Philippines squad for their double-header against Uzbekistan and the Maldvies in World Cup qualifying.
