International round-up

Every single one of the Bayern players in action for their countries had a successful week this week. In addition to Germany’s 4-1 victory over Slovakia in their European Championship qualifier (see separate report), Daniel van Buyten, Willy Sagnol, Ali Karimi and Lucio all return to Munich with victories under their belts.

<b>Daniel van Buyten</b> celebrated an important win with his fellow Belgians against Azerbaijan in Brussels in their quest for European Championship qualification. Timmy Simons (penalty), Kevin Vandenbergh and substitute Dembélé scored in the “Red Devils'” assured 3-0 victory, closing the gap between them and the Group A leaders.

<b>Karimi secures participation in Asian Cup</b>

At the top of Group B, World Cup runners-up France with <b>Willy Sagnol</b> enjoyed a dominant victory over the Faroe Islands. Louis Saha, <br>Thierry Henry and substitutes Nicolas Anelka and David Trezuguet (2) all found the back of the net in “L’Equipe Tricolor”’s third win in four games. With 9 points each, the French replace Scotland at the top of the table on goal difference.

<b>Ali Karimi</b> had a very successful trip to the Far East where he helped Iran secure a place in the Asian Cup. In a deciding qualifier on Wednesday night in Taipei, the midfielder almost single-handedly put an end to the Taiwanese challenge, scoring both goals in the 2-0 win. The Asian Cup takes place next year in Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam and Thailand.

<b>Brazil beats Ecuador</b>

On Tuesday night Lucio and his Brazilian team mates celebrated a 2-1 friendly victory over South American rivals Ecuador. Felix Boria opened the scoring in the 22nd minute for the underdogs in Stockholm's Rasunda stadium, but they lost momentum shortly afterwards when Valencia was sent off for elbowing Dudu. Fred and Kaka were able to beat the Ecuadorian keeper on either side of the half-time whistle sealing a deserved win for the „Selecao“, in which Lucio played for a full 90 minutes.
