There have been callups for two of Derby County`s internationals this week with the news that Jamie Ward and Kevin Kilbane have been named in the provisional squads for their respective nations for the upcoming round of European Championship qualifiers.

Ward has been called up by Nigel Worthington for Northern Ireland`s qualifiers against Estonia and away to Italy next month having earned his first full international cap against Faroe Islands in August. He was also named in the squad for the qualifiers earlier this month but had to pull out with a hamstring injury.

Kevin Kilbane has also been name in the Republic of Ireland squad for their games away to Andorra and Armenia despite missing the last Derby games due to injury. A back problem ruled him out of Ireland`s recent qualifiers breaking his run of consecutive starts in competitive matches with the on loan Hull City man now looking to add to his 110 caps.
