Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Raul Fernandez and Richard Sanchez are off with their respective national teams.

A bit of international friendly news that concerns FC Dallas fans to update you all on. FC Dallas goalkeeper Raul Fernandez has been called up by Peru for a pair of friendlies against England and Switzerland.

Fernandez has already departed Dallas and will train with the Peruvian national teamin Madrid, Spain. The team will then travel to London to face England at Wembley Stadium on Friday, May 30. The match, which will kick off at 2 p.m. CT, is England's final home match prior to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Peru's second friendly will be against Switzerland at Swissporarena Stadium in Lucerne, Switzerland, on Tuesday, June 3. That match will kick off at 6:30 a.m. CT.

Fernandez will return to FC Dallas on June 4.

The other keeper called up is Homegrown star Richard Sanchez, who has currently playing with the Mexican U-21 National Team at the Toulon Tournament in Southeastern France. Sanchez has started two matches, a 2-0 loss to France on May 25 and a 2-2 draw against Chile, which was played today.

This likely means that this weekend we'll see another Homegrown make the bench as Jesse Gonzalez is the only other keeper available to backup Chris Seitz.
