Four Blues named to Belgium squad for friendly against France, Cech given time off

We'll probably get plenty of news about who was called up for international duty today

After the final friendly of the preseason on Saturday, many Chelsea players will be jetting off to take part in meaningless international friendlies that do nothing but potentially disrupt the start to their club season. The first of the squads are out, and I'll turn it over to John Chapman:

The Belgian group is all fairly young, and Marc Wilmots has generally done a nice job of limiting minutes in friendlies. As long as our crew can manage to stay healthy, I'm not all that concerned by any of their participation.

One player that won't be taking part is Petr Cech, who was not named to the squad to face Greece ahead of the new season. While additional minutes for our keeper don't really concern me all that much, it's nice to see a manager that's resting his top players in meaningless games. Something tells me we won't be so lucky when Roy Hodgson reveals his squad.
