While the New England Revolution will spend Thursday afternoon traveling ahead of Friday night's meeting with the Philadelphia Union, a trio of Revolution players will be in action on the international stage as Adam Buksa (Poland), Tajon Buchanan (Canada), and Matt Turner (United States) take part in FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.

Buksa will be up first as Poland host Albania on matchday four of Group I in UEFA World Cup Qualifiers, with kickoff set for 2:45 p.m. ET on ESPN+. This is Buksa's second call-up with Poland's senior team (and his first since November 2018), but he remains in search of his first appearance. This round of qualifiers will continue with additional matches against San Marino (Sept. 5) and England (Sept. 8), with Poland currently sitting fourth in the six-team group.

Meanwhile, the final round of Concacaf World Cup Qualifying is just beginning, with Buchanan and Canada getting the Octagonal underway with a home game against Honduras on Thursday night. Kickoff is slated for 8:05 p.m. ET on Paramount+. Buchanan has made nine appearances with the Canadian senior team - all in 2021 - and earned both Best Young Player and Best XI honors at this summer's Concacaf Gold Cup.

Turner and the U.S. National Team will round out Thursday's slate with their first game of the Octagonal and a tricky road trip to El Salvador at 10:05 p.m. ET, with coverage on both CBS Sports Network and Paramount+. Like Buchanan, all of Turner's international experience has been in 2021, going 7-0-0 with just a single goal conceded (from the penalty spot) while also claiming Best Goalkeeper and Best XI recognition at the Gold Cup.

Buchanan and Turner will then square off on the second matchday of Concacaf's final round of qualifying as the USMNT hosts Canada at Nissan Stadium in Nashville on September 5. This round of qualifiers will conclude on September 8 when the U.S. visits Honduras and Canada hosts El Salvador.
