10 Fixtures to look out for in the International Break

After a hectic start to the year 2016, club games come to a halt this week and the next as the players get ready for the international friendlies just a couple of months before the EURO16.

There are loads of games between nations these couple of weeks and though they are friendly games, there are some fierce affairs waiting for us. Though the big name players might be given a rest in this break, it will not be easy to keep them out of action as even in a friendly, a loss can potentially dent the confidence of the side going into the competition later this year.

The biggest cause of concern for the clubs in these breaks is the chance of players picking up injuries and with the business end of the domestic season almost upon us, it will be heartbreaking to see clubs lose star players during this time out.
