International friendly action concludes for a host of Norwich City players today.

Centre-back Timm Klose is with Switzerland for a home game against Bosnia & Herzegovina (7.30), having played all of a 1-0 loss in Dublin on Friday.

Robbie Brady started that match for the Republic of Ireland and Wes Hoolahan was used as a second-half substitute and the duo could be in action again today in a home fixture against Slovakia (7.45pm).

Full-back Martin Olsson is with Sweden for a home clash with the Czech Republic (7.30pm), having been an unused substitute during a 2-1 loss in Turkey on Thursday.

City skipper Russell Martin played all of Scotland's 1-0 win in the Czech Republic on Thursday but is not in the squad for tonight's home game against Denmark – although Steve Whittaker has joined up with the squad for the game.
