Several PSV players were on international action last weekend when they featured in Euro 2008 and World Cup 2010 qualifying matches. Five players represented their countries in qualifying matches for the UEFA European Championship organised by Austria and Switzerland in 2008.
Timmy Simons featured throughout as Belgium drew 0-0 with Finland at the Koning Boudewijn Stadium in Brussels. His PSV Finland team mate Mika Väyrynen watched on from the substitute's bench. Denmark suffered a 3-1 defeat against Spain in Aarhus. Kenneth Perez was brought on as a substitute ten minutes from time, when the home side were trailing 2-0. Jon Dahl Tomasson handed the hosts a lifeline three minutes from the final whistle, but two minutes later Spain put the result beyond doubt. Qualification for next summer's finals is a mathematical impossibility for Belgium and Denmark, but Finland are still in contention, following this weekend's results.

Serbia coach Javier Clemente did not hand a start to Danko Lazovic in his side's 0-0 draw away against Armenia. Lazovic left the bench on the hour mark to replace striker Marko Pantelić. Serbia still have a chance of booking a place in the finals, but Poland, coached by Leo Beenhakker, are on top of Group A.
Danny Koevermans came on as substitute five minutes from time in Holland's 1-0 defeat against Romania in Constanta. Romania go three points clear of the Netherlands at the top of UEFA Euro 2008 qualifying Group G. Bulgaria are third, two points behind the Netherlands, who aim to get back to winning ways, when they play host to Slovenia at the Philips Stadium in Eindhoven on Wednesday
Edison Méndez and Jefferson Farfán have already started the World Cup 2010 campaign (in South Africa). Mendéz played the full 90 minutes, as Ecuador suffered a 1-0 defeat against Venezuela at the Atahualpa de Quito. Farfán featured throughout as Peru were held to a 0-0 draw by Paraguay in Lima. Mexico, with Carlos Salcido , and Nigeria settled for a 2-2 draw in a friendly on Sunday
