Norwich City's Premier League relegation was confirmed on Wednesday night but there will be no let-up for a quartet of Canaries who will be involved in international friendlies after this weekend's league finale at Everton.

Republic of Ireland duo Robbie Brady and Wes Hoolahan are part of a 35-man party named by Martin O'Neill for a friendly against Holland on May 27 as the Irish gear up for this summer's Euro 2016 tournament.

Meanwhile Scotland pair Russell Martin and Steven Naismith are in Gordon Strachan's squad for prestige friendlies against Italy in Malta on May 29 and Euro 2016 hosts France in Metz on June 4.

All four were on duty in Norwich's 4-2 midweek win against Watford on a night when Alex Neil's squad were relegated to the Football League following Sunderland's 3-0 home win over the Toffees.
