Roberto Pereyra leads a host of Watford players who have been selected for their national teams for the November international break.
Argentine Pereyra has been called up for the second consecutive time after receiving his first call-up since 2015 for last month’s games against Brazil and Iraq. He capped his return with a goal against Iraq in a 4-0 win. The Argentine will be hoping to add to his first goal for his country when his side face Mexico in a doubleheader.
