International Friendly Results

England won its first game under new coach Fabio Capello with a 2-1 victory over Switzerland Wednesday at Wembley. In matches involving Euro '08 finalists, Italy was impressive in a 3-1 win over Portugal. A late goal gave Spain a 1-0 win over France. Germany and the Netherlands rolled to 3-0 wins at Austria and Croatia, respectively.

MLS players of the past (Honduran Amado Guevara), present (Toronto FC's Jamaican Tyrone Marshall and Welshman Carl Fletcher) and possibly the future (Costa Rica's Dominican-born Victor Nunez) found the mark.

Argentina's team of Olympic hopefuls drew 25,000 fans at the Los Angeles Coliseum for its 5-0 win over Guatemala.
