Three first team Rams and four academy players have been called up for international duty this week.
With the Rams not playing until November 25, the departed players will have a chance to make their impact on an international level over the next week.
All the players will return before Derby's next game against Bristol Rovers, however if they have been playing for their countries, they'll likely not start unless their fitness is particularly good.
Conor Washington - Northern Ireland
Rams striker Conor Washington has been in decent form recently, scoring in two of Derby's past three home league games.
The 31 year-old has recorded three goals and two assists in 14 appearances so far this season and has recently been battling with James Collins for the start up front.
The former Rotherham man is a mainstay in Northern Ireland's international side and has six goals in 39 appearances for his national side.
He will face Finland and Denmark in two Euro 2024 qualifiers with Northern Ireland already out of the running for a spot in the tournament.
Ryan Nyambe - Namibia
Ryan Nyambe has been excellent since he joined the Rams as a free agent in September. The defender has made nine appearances and has become a crucial part of Paul Warne's starting XI.
So it is no surprise to see him called up to his national side. Since his international debut in 2019, Nyambe has made 14 appearances and will hope to add to them this week.
Namibia played their first of two World Cup qualifiers last night as they lost 1-0 to Equatorial Guinea, unfortunatley Nyambe spent the game sat on the bench.
He'll be hoping to make an impact in their next game against Sao Tome and Principe next Tuesday.
Tyrese Fornah - Sierra Leone
Tyrese Fornah made his international debut last night for Sierra Leone as they drew 0-0 with Ethoipia in their opening World Cup qualifiying game.
The 24 year-old has been making appearances for the Rams in midfield after joining from local rivals Nottingham Forest in the summer.
He'll be hoping to feature in thier second game which comes against Mo Salah's Egypt on Sunday.
Darren Robinson - Northern Ireland U21s
Darren Robinson has been getting closer and closer to more regular first team appearances. His last came against Wolves U21s in the EFL Trophy where the Rams won 4-1.
Robinson has made just one appearance for Northern Ireland U21s, but he has appeared for their U19s and U18s.
He'll be hoping to make his second against England's U21s on Tuesday as his Northern Ireland side try to give themselves a shot at Euro 2025.
Charlie Lindsay - Northern Ireland U21s
Charlie Lindsay will be joining Robinson for the Northern Ireland U21s. He joined Derby in the summer from Rangers' B Team and has yet to make an appearance for the first team.
He is also waiting for his first appearance for Northern Ireland's U21s, but much like Robinson, has played for the U18s and U19s sides.
Carlos Richards - Gibraltar U21s
Carlos Richards has only made one appearance for Gibraltar's U21s side. He'll be hoping to add to it tonight as they face the Netherlands in a Euro 2025 qualifier.
His Gibraltar side have lost all eight of their qualifiying matches so far and are virtually out of qualification. However, appearances for the national side are still valuable.
They also play on Tuesday night against Moldova.
Cruz Allen - Wales U17s
The youngest player on the list, Allen is only 16, but has made three U17s appearances for Wales and has scored in two of them.
He will play on Saturday and Tuesday against Belgium and Gibraltar as he hopes to qualify for the U17s Euros.
