With the season drawing to a conclusion, what better way to distract ourselves momentarily from the action with the mandatory, FIFA-enforced, utterly useless, money-making machine international break?

Though it is an unwelcome distraction, for some, it provide a sense of achievement, as a reward for your hard work and performance throughout the season.

Matt Targett, is one such lad, as he has been called up for the first time by Gareth Southgate to join the England U-21 squad for their upcoming matches at the end of the month.

Targett is one of two Southampton players called up to the U-21 squad, with James Ward-Prowse being the other. England U-21 will travel to Czech Republic, who will host this year's U-21 Euro before facing Germany at Riverside Stadium.

The pair are not the only ones to go on international duties, as a trio of Saints players has also received a call-up to the England U-20 squad.

Harrison Reed, Jack Stephens, and Jordan Turnbull will be a part of Aidy Boothroyd's squad, as the U-20 squad take on Mexico and USA on the 25th and 29th of March.
