City Players in Action During the International Break


Here is a quick write up of what I could find out about current City players, City youth players, City players on loan and one incoming player during the international break.

Fernandinho played all 90 minutes for Brazil in their 5 – 0 victory over South Africa. He scored an absolute screamer of a goal. He has stated that part of his motivation for leaving Shakhtar Donetsk for City was his ambition to play in the World Cup this summer. He has now made as strong a case as possible to be included. Thanks to Marc L, here is a vine of the goal.

Emyr Huws made his Wales debut against Iceland. He played all 90 minutes in a game hailed as a Gareth Bale master class as Wales defeated Iceland 3 – 1.

Karim Rekik made his Holland debut in the 52nd minute. His side lost 2 – 0 to France and both goals were scored before he came on.

Aleks Kolarov played all 90 minutes and provided an assist as Serbia defeated Ireland by 2 goals to 1. He played more minutes than I would have liked to see as I expect him to figure prominently for the remainder of the season.

Edin Dzeko played all 90 minutes as Bosnia-Herzegovinia fell to Egypt 0 – 2.

Sergio Aguero played 56 minutes and Pablo Zabaleta the entire game as Argentina and Romania played to a scoreless draw. Costel Pantilimon played the second half and held up his end of the bargain.

Vincent Kompany played all 90 minutes and captained Belgium in their 2 – 2 draw with Cote D’Ivoire. Yaya Toure played 83 minutes and assisted Didier Drogba’s goal.

In Spain’s 1 – 0 victory over Italy, David Silva played the second half and set up Pedro for the goal. Jesus Navas came on in the 66th minute. Alvaro Negredo was, thankfully, an unused sub.

Joe Hart kept a clean sheet as England downed Denmark 1 – 0. James Milner came on in the 88th minute to earn his 45th cap.

Bersant Celina from City’s U-18 team was called into Kosovo’s side to train for their first ever match. Kosovo drew Haiti 0 – 0 and Celina did not play. It is not clear to me if he was not named to the final roster or was an unused sub.

In Euro U-21 Group 7 action, John Guidetti scored Sweden’s winning goal as Sweden downed Malta 1 – 2.

Incoming player Bruno Zuculini played all 90 minutes for Racing Club in their 1 – 0 loss to Lanus in the Argentina –Primera Torneo Final.
