Sheffield Wednesday fans do have some results to look out for over the next few days, even if the Owls’ season is over.

Wednesday finished their season on a high after securing safety in the Championship on the final day, and now most of their players have headed into their off-season breaks in various parts of the world.

For a handful, though, the football is not yet over. And four players who have been part of Danny Röhl’s senior squad this year have jetted out on international duty - facing challenges in three different continents.

Here’s a breakdown of which Owls players are away with their respective national teams, and who they’ll be pitted against this month.

Di’Shon Bernard

Jamaica face the Dominican Republic this evening at 9.30pm UK time in their first qualifier for the 2026 World Cup, and they’ll be hoping to get off to a strong start at Independence Park in Kingston.

Next up, at 8pm UK time on Sunday, they’ll play their first away game of their qualifying campaign against Dominica in their capital city of Roseau.

Pierce Charles

It remains to be seen whether Charles is handed his senior debut for Northern Ireland this month when they take on Spain and Andorra in preseason friendlies, but manager, Michael O’Neill, has spoken highly of the goalkeeper.

It’s a first senior call-up for the 18-year-old, and he’s been named in the squad alongside former Owl, Bailey Peacock-Farrell, as well as Conor Hazard.

Joey Phuthi

There could be a competitive international debut on the cards for the Wednesday teen as he takes part in Zimbabwe’s World Cup qualifiers in South Africa - they host Lesotho in Johannesburg at 2pm UK time on Friday.

After that comes a game against Bafana Bafana in Bloemfontein on Tuesday evening, and after making his debut in March he’ll be hoping to get a few more minutes in the tank for his country this month.

Bailey Cadamarteri

After scoring on his first venture with England at U19 level earlier in the year, Cadamarteri was rewarded with a call-up to the Elite League squad this month for friendlies against Sweden and the Republic of Ireland in Croatia.

The 19-year-old grabbed a handful of goals in his first professional season with the Owls, and will be hoping to make his mark for the Young Lions when they take on the Swedes tomorrow afternoon or against Ireland on Tuesday if given the opportunity in either fixture.

Meanwhile, Wednesday also have a number of players who will be playing at various youth levels for different countries, and there will also be eyes on transfer target, Iké Ugbo, as the Owls loanee turns out for Canada in friendlies and the Copa America in the coming weeks.
