<L CODE="C01">Eric Addo</L> and <L CODE="C02">Edison Mendez</L> were the only PSV internationals that represented their country last week. All the other PSV players that had been called up for national duty did not make an appearance for several reasons. PSV.nl present an international round-up, focusing on the performances of the PSV internationals. Jefferson Farfán, Jason Culina and Xiang Sun, who are all suffering minor complaints, did not report for national duty, but remained behind in Eindhoven for treatment, while Arouna Koné and Alex are ruled out with serious knee and hamstring injuries, respectively. Carlos Salcido joined PSV’s lengthy casualty list yesterday. The Mexican returned from his native country without having achieved his aim, after he had sustained a hip injury. The 26-year-old defender will undergo examination at hospital to reveal the exact nature of his injury. Mika Väyrynen will not be called into action before Wednesday, when Finland travel to Azerbaijan for a Euro 2008 qualifying game. Timmy Simons served a one-match suspension, reluctantly watching Belgium’s 4-0 battering by Portugal, who did not grant Manuel da Costa playing time.
Ibrahim Afellay was not handed his Netherlands debut yet, but saw the Netherlands v Romania game from the stand. The midfielder saw his Dutch team colleagues put on a disappointing and uninspiring display in their 0-0 draw Romania (0-0). Afellay will make the trip to Slovenia, where the Dutch team play another Euro 2008 qualifying game, but coach Marco van Basten has dropped Denny Landzaat and Kew Jaliens, who were included in last Saturday’s starting line-up, for Wednesday's game.
<L CODE="C01">Eric Addo</L> and <L CODE="C02">Edison Mendez</L> were the only PSV internationals that represented their country last week. Addo played the full 90 minutes in Ghana’s 1-1 draw with Austria, while Edison Mendez, who also played the entire game, slipped to a 3-1 defeat with Ecuador against the United States of America.
