No midweek fixture has been scheduled for PSV, but the coaching staff will have a depleted squad available at the training sessions this week, as several of their players will jet off on international duty. Carlos Salcido and Eric Addo will meet on Easter Monday in London.

PSV centre back Salcido did not have to make a long trip, as Ghana meet Mexico in an international friendly in London today. African countries, including Addo's Ghana, are used to hosting their international friendlies in London. Addo, who had sustained a hamstring injury during the Africa Cup of Nations, was called up to the PSV squad again on Saturday, after he had returned to full fitness. Jason Culina will travel the furthest distance as Australia meet China for a FIFA World Cup 2010 qualifying match against China in Kunming on Wednesday.
Balázs Dzsudzsák, Danko Lazovic, Timmy Simons and Mika Väyrynen have been called up to the represent their respective countries for the forthcoming round of international friendlies. Hungary, with Dzsudzsák, will entertain Slovenia in Zalaegerszeg. Simons captains Belgium, who take on Morocco in Brussels and PSV striker Danko Lazovic's Serbia travel to the Ukraine. Mika Väyrynen's Finland have a friendly match against Bulgaria in Sofia.
Holland U-21 coach Foppe De Haan has called up Ismail Aissati and Dirk Marcellis for the Euro 2008 qualifying game against Estonia in Emmen on Wednesday 26 March. Completing the international round-up is Rens van Eijden who has been called up to the squad of the Dutch Youth team for the first time to meet Tunisia in an international friendly on 26 March. Ibrahim Afellay has pulled out of the Holland squad for the international friendly with Austria in Vienna on Wednesday. Austria host the UEFA European Championships this summer, along with Switzerland. Edison Méndez withdrew from the national team of Ecuador some weeks ago, while Jefferson Farfán, who sustained an injury during the closing stages of the clash with FC Groningen on Saturday, has not received a call-up to the Peru squad lately.
