Here, we take a look at five teams whose seasons were derailed because of the international break: In 2015, West Ham United were one point behind Manchester City in the Premier League table and one spot away from qualifying for the Champions League.

The international break is the bane of every football fan’s existence.

Sami Khedira missed out on four months of football due to a knee injury in an international friendly match in 2013, and in the following season, Real Madrid’s bad luck during international breaks continued.

But sometimes the repercussions of an international break can be much worse for teams if they lose momentum after their players return or if their star player picks up an injury.

Then-manager Slaven Bilic was optimistic that the Hammers would finish in the top four, but the international break had other plans.

With Owen injured, the team's form dipped drastically.

But following a home international against Northern Ireland in May 1984, Rush admitted that the joint felt like “a rusty old gate.”  After struggling through the European Cup final against Roma, Rush had a cartilage operation in the summer, and missed the first 10 league matches of the 1984/85 season.
