Four Nottingham Forest players have been called up to represent their countries in the latest round of international fixtures.

Thomas Lam, Vladimir Stojkovic, Apostolos Vellios and Britt Assombalonga will all travel to play for their countries over the next two weeks.

Serbian goalkeeper Stojkovic will be part of the squad which faces Wales in Cardiff for a World Cup Qualifier on Saturday 12 November, and also for the trip to Ukraine for a friendly on Tuesday 15 November.

Forest top scorer Vellios has been called up to the Greece squad for their matches against Belarus and Bosnia on Wednesday 9 November and Sunday 13 November respectively. The forward could line-up for the friendly match in Athens before a crucial Group H qualifier against the Bosnians.

Assombalonga has answered the call from the country of his birth, Democratic Republic of Congo, for the first time. The 23-year-old is in line to make his international debut as Congo DR face Guinea in a World Cup Qualifier on Sunday 13 November.

Nottingham Forest would like to wish all four players well as they represent their countries.
