The PSV internationals away on World Cup duty have achieved successes with their countries. Carlos Salcido (Mexico) and Jason Culina (Australia) are one step closer to the World Cup 2010. Lazovic was on target in Serbia's 6-1 battering of Bulgaria in a friendly international.
Mexico advance to next round
Two PSV players were on World Cup duty on Wednesday night. Carlos Salcido's Mexico slipped to a 1-0 defeat at Honduras. Defender Ricardo Osario scored an unfortunate own goal, but Mexico advanced to the final qualifying round all the same. The Mexicans were reduced to nine men during the hectic closing stages after Gerardo Torrado and substitute Carlos Vela had been given their marching orders. Australia did their chances of qualifying for World Cup 2010 a world of good with a 1-0 victory in a World Cup qualifying tie away against Bahrain. Mark Bresciano scored the winning goal for Pim Verbeek's team four minutes into injury time. PSV player Jason Culina was included in the starting line-up. The Socceroos recorded their third consecutive World Cup qualifying win. They sit atop their group with a maximum nine points from three matches. Rivals Japan are in second on seven points, with one game in hand.
Danko Lazovic goal
Striker Danko Lazovic was on target in Serbia's 6-1 battering of neighbours Bulgaria, as Savo Milosevic bade farewell to the national team. Belgium were held to a 1-1 draw by Luxembourg. Kevin Mirallas gave the Red Devils a 1-0 lead after 23 minutes but Mario Mutsch leveled things for the hosts straight after the restart. Timmy Simons was taken off in the 69th minute. Ghana and Tunisia settled for a goalless draw. PSV defender Eric Addo played the full match for Ghana. Hungary beat Northern Ireland 2-0 in an international friendly in Belfast on Wednesday night, thanks to second-half goals from Sandor Torghelle and Zoltan Gera. Hungary coach Erwin Koeman brought on Balázs Dzsudzsák six minutes from time.
