The Football League was represented in England U21's 2-1 win over Slovenia last night in the form of Wolves striker Michael Kightly and Peterborough's Joe Lewis but today our attentions turn to the full squads, with all the home nations in action.

Scotland face Northern Ireland in a friendly at Hampden Park and there could be a plethora of Football League stars in action.

George Burley named seven Championship players in his original squad, although Cardiff City duo Kevin McNaughton and Gavin Rae, as well as Preston North End's Callum Davidson were forced to withdraw through injury.

This did pave the way for Burnley defender Graham Alexander to earn a recall and he joins David Marshall (Norwich City), Gary Naysmith (Sheffield United) and James McFadden (Birmingham City) in the squad. While Derby County midfielder Kris Commons is in line to make his international debut after making the majority of his appearances in League 1.

No less than 6 Football League players could be in action for Northern Ireland, with Maik Taylor (Birmingham City), Gareth McAuley (Ipswich Town), Michael Duff (Burnley), Michael O'Connor (Crewe), Sammy Clingan (Norwich) and Martin Paterson (Burnley) all in the squad. While Peter Thompson (Stockport County)and Keith Gillespie (Sheffield United) have both pulled out through injury.

For Wales, who face Georgia in a friendly, the big news for them was the recall of Robert Earnshaw, who moved to Nottingham Forest in the summer. The former Cardiff and West Brom striker last played for Wales in November last year.

Only seven players in the entire squad come from outside The Football League and one of those is Carl Robinson who is currently playing in the MLS another is Steve Evans of Wrexham who were relegated to the Football Conference in May .Only Boaz Myhill and Sam Ricketts (Hull), Rhys Taylor (Chelsea), Simon Davies (Fulham) and Jason Koumas (Wigan Athletic) are currently playing in the Premier League.
