John EustacePromising midfielder John Eustace has also been placed on standby for the team in case anyone pulls out though injury.

Steve OgrizovicAnd veteran Steve Ogrizovic was given an honour for his services to football at the Midlands Football Writersí Association award.

He was presented with the Carling No 1 award, following in the footsteps of other recipients such as Peter Shilton and Sir Stanley Matthews.

Other Sky Blues players in action this weekend for their countries include Colin Hendry, who has retained his place in the Scotland squad, despite failing to secure a place in the Coventry team.

Gary Breen is expected to remain at the centre of defence for the Republic of Ireland in games against Portugal and Estonia, while Barry Quinn will appear for the under-21 side.

But Wales will have to do without Craig Bellamy, who is suspended after missing games against Norway and Poland following his sending off against Belarus last month.
