Marko Arnautovic has been named in the Austria squad that will face Slovenia and Luxembourg later this month.

The 28-year-old, who is currently in Miami with the rest of the West Ham first team squad already has 67 caps under his belt and has been named in Franco Foda's latest 24-man squad ahead of the two friendlies, which are due to take place on 23 and 27 March.

* Cheikhou Kouyate - with 25 caps to his name - is set to represent Senegal in their forthcoming pre-World Cup friendlies against Uzbekistan and Bosnia and Herzegovina on March 23 and 27 respectively.

The Hammers midfielder - who currently captains his national side - confesses he can't wait to lead his team out at this summer's World Cup Finals in Russia. " I am the captain and my people are behind us, so I need to lead my team," Kouyate told whufc.com.

“It won’t be easy though as this is a World Cup and every game is hard. Every game is a final and we are going there to give our best, because all of Senegal are proud of the team. Everybody in the country loves football."

The midfielder is joined in the squad by former Hammer Diafra Sakho, who has scored three goals in his first seven appearances in Ligue 1 for new club Rennes.

* In other international news, Manuel Lanzini has already been named in the Argentina squad which will face Italy and Spain in the same week. The 25-year-old has previously represented his country at full international level on two occasions.
