The games keep on coming for Niall McGinn but the Aberdeen attacker insists he can handle his heavy workload.
The Dons forward enjoyed the shortest break of any of his team-mates this summer due to his international commitments with Northern Ireland.
While many of his team-mates enjoy a break this week due to the international fixtures there will be no respite for McGinn who has linked up with the Northern Ireland squad for the European Championship qualifiers against the Faroe Islands on Saturday and Greece on Tuesday.
With the Dons also reporting back for pre-season training in the middle of June due to their Europa League qualifiers McGinn has had little time away from football but the 27-year-old insists he can cope with the schedule.
He said: “It’s a big couple of weeks coming up with two international games before we play Hamilton on next Friday night.
“The games are coming thick and fast but as a professional I like that sort of thing and with he team doing so well we thrive on that and enjoy them.
“I enjoy the international break and playing for my country and to be involved in the big games and against some of the best players in the world.
“You’re putting your name on the international map.”
Having beaten Hungary 2-1 in their first qualifying fixture last month McGinn knows his country must build on their campaign opening win in the next two matches.
He said: “The start we had against Hungary, taking three points has set us up nicely for the next two matches.
“If we don’t get three points against the Faroe Islands then the win in Hungary wasn’t a good three points.
“We need to get three points at home and that’ll set us up nicely for the game in Greece.”
McGinn has timed his return perfectly following two games out with a hamstring strain and is pleased to put his injury behind him.
He said: “It’s good to be back. I think I just had a little bit of fatigue.
“I’ve been playing a lot of football but I’m just thankful I wasn’t out for too long and I was thankful to be able to play against St Mirren last Tuesday night and hit the ground running again and get a good 70 minutes under my belt before facing Dundee.”
