International success for Hargreaves and Sagnol

The last three national squad players returned to Munich on Thursday following a round of international matches, with Owen Hargreaves and England relieved at a crucial Euro 2008 qualifying victory over Andorra and Willy Sagnol satisfied with France's friendly defeat of Austria, but Roque Santa Cruz forced to accept defeat in a warm-up outing for Paraguay against Colombia.

England, with <b>Hargreaves</b> completing the full 90 minutes, struggled in the first half against the minnows from Andorra and were booed off the pitch at the Barcelona Olympic stadium after 45 minutes. However, Liverpool enforcer Steven Gerrard struck twice after the interval to settle the outcome, before debut man David Nugent of second division Preston North End added a third in stoppage time. England now lie level on points with Israel and Russia in Group F, but remain two points off leaders Croatia having played a game more.

<b>Rest for Sagnol</b>

Another new face stole the show at the Stade de France in Paris, Olympique Lyon striker Karim Benzema coming on as a substitute to strike the winner for coach Raymond Domenech' side. <b>Sagnol</b>, who was unable to complete the full training programme beforehand, spent the 90 minutes against the Austrians on the bench.

<b>Santa Cruz</b> did earn a cap for Paraguay in Colombia but was unable to prevent his side falling 2-0. The result means new Paraguay coach Gerardo Martino has lost both his first games in charge.
