Diego Laxalt has been called up for the Uruguay national team for the friendly against Mexico.

No doubt that he won’t be the only one involved in international action over the upcoming break, but it’s still great to see one of Milan’s most recent additions get some time with their national team.

And US-based Milan fans, the match will be played in Houston, so if you’re wanting to see a Milan player up and close, here’s your chance. Plus it will be televised as well.
