Many PSV players have gone off on international duty. They competed on the international stage the past few days and nine of them will again play international games in as many as five continents on Tuesday and Wednesday. Read here the complete round-up on all the matches.

A round-up
Eric Addo featured in Ghana's 2-0 in a friendly over Morocco in Rouen in France. Addo, who plays at centre back at PSV, operated as midfielder. Mexico had included Carlos Salcido in their starting line-up for a friendly against Panama. The defender played the full 90 minutes in Mexico's 1-0 win and was shown a yellow card. Edison Méndez played for almost sixty minutes in Ecuador's emphatic 5-1 win over El Salvador in a friendly. The Euro 2008 qualifying game Serbia versus Finland ended in a goalless draw. Mika Väyrynen was ruled out of the game with an injury, while Danko Lazovic was handed a start for Serbia.

Tuesday and Wednesday
Nine players will be called into international duty on Wednesday. Serbia, with Lazovic, will play a crucial Euro 2008 qualifier against Portugal in Lisbon. Both teams are in contention to book a place in the Euro 2008 championship in Austria and Switzerland, but so are Poland, who will travel to Finland. Ibrahim Afellay has rejoined the Holland squad, after coach Marco van Basten called up the young PSV midfielder for the Euro 2008 qualifier against Albania on Wednesday. Belgium, with Timmy Simons, will face tough opposition from Kazakhstan. Several friendlies have been scheduled as well. Mexico, with Carlos Salcido, will meet Brazil, without Alex, who is injured, in Boston in the United States of America. Ecuador, with Méndez, will make a trip to Honduras and Ghana, with Addo, will take on Saudi Arabia in a friendly in Riyadh. Australia, with Jason Culina, play Argentina in a friendly in Melbourne on Tuesday and Portugal Under-21, with Manuel da Costa, will face Montenegro Under-21 on Tuesday.
