Johan Branger-Engone (Gabon)

Captained by Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the African country are also on their travels today (Saturday 23 March, 1pm) to take on Burundi in a crucial match for the qualification stages of the African Cup of Nations.

The EFL granted the club permission to postpone the Newport away fixture this weekend due to three international call-ups. Unfortunately goalkeeper Zeus de la Paz didn't make the final squad selection for Curacao this time round.
