This is something that had threatened to happen, but now the Addicks have confirmed that they will not allow China to call-up midfielder Zheng Zhi towards the end of October.
Clear international windows are set out each season, but as the China matches fall outside of the current international break (which we have just gone into) under new Fifa rules the Addicks are not obliged to release him, so they won't.
Addicks boss Alan Pardew is sympathetic towards the Chinese but he has confirmed that Zheng Zhi will not be released to play their World Cup qualifying double header against Burma on the 21st and 28th of October, as he told the Addicks website: 'I apologise to the Chinese federation, but I have made the decision to keep him here.
'If he were to travel, he would miss our games against Wolves, Plymouth and QPR because the fixtures fall outside of the international window.
'I know Zizi is an important player for his country, but he is also important for us.
'I am sure that China will be able to get the results they need from the two games without him.'
Zheng Zhi has been in brilliant form for the Addicks this season, with Andy Reid and himself the star performers against the Tykes at the weekend, Zheng scoring the Addicks goal.
