A group of Revolution mainstays will join their home nations in mid-June.

A trio of Revolution regulars will soon depart Foxboro for competitions on three different continents. On Tuesday, Antonio Delamea, Kei Kamara and Je-Vaughn Watson all received call-ups from their respective home nations and will participate in international matches later this month.

Here’s what’s next for each player:

Antonio Delamea

Home country: Slovenia
International competition: World Cup Qualifying match. Seeking to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, Slovenia currently sits in third place in the European Qualification Group. The small, central European nation will host sixth place Malta on June 10 in Ljubljana, Slovenia’s capital city.
Likelihood of missing an MLS match: Low. The Revolution play June 3 against Toronto FC and won’t reconvene for a league match until Saturday, June 17 against the Chicago Fire.

Kei Kamara

Home Country: Sierra Leone
International competition: Africa Cup of Nations qualifier. On June 8, Sierra Leone will square off with Kenya, its foe in Group F of AFCON qualification. Kamara most recently appeared for his home country on Sept. 3, 2016, scoring his team’s lone goal in a 1-1 draw with Côte d’Ivoire.
Likelihood of missing an MLS match: Low. Like Delamea, Kamara should return with time to spare ahead of the Revs’ June 17 bout with the Fire.

Je-Vaughn Watson

Home country: Jamaica
International competition: Friendly. Watson will suit up for Jamaica during a June 13 meeting with Peru. The match will take place in Arequipa, Peru’s second largest city.
Likelihood of missing and MLS match: Low. While Watson likely won’t appear during the Revs’ U.S. Open Cup debut—the club hosts a fourth-round match on June 14—he should be available for selection on June 17.
