Report: Valencia players on international duty

Brazil; Diego Alves, Jonas Goncalves
Diego Alves started and played the full 90 minutes in Brazil's match. He wasn't particualry tested, but did well on the few occasions he was called in.
Jonas Goncalves played for three quarters of the match and was decent, but was a bit wasteful with the chances he got.

France; Adil Rami, Jeremy Mathieu
Adil Rami started and played the full 90 minutes in France's match and did great, with France not conceding a goal.
Jeremy Mathieu started for the first time for France after being feature in the squad for the last two matches, but not even sitting on the bench. He did good and just might get a permanent place in the squad.

Tureky; Mehmet Topal
Mehmet Topal did not start in his national team 3-0 beating, although he did come in in the fourth quarter. He stabilized the play in midfield, but didn't offer much.

Spain; Jordi Alba
Jordi Alba started and played the full 90 minutes for Spain against England and did good, with few dangerous runs in the first half and a good defensive display.
