Aleksandar Ignovski played 86 minutes for Serbia and helped them to a 6-1 victory over Wales.
 
Apart from the strong showing by the Austrian trio of Zlatko Junuzovic, Sebastian Prödl and Marko Arnautovic in their 2-1 loss against Germany, a number of other Werder players stood on the pitch during the second match day of the World Cup qualification. Mehmet Ekici, Sokratis and Aleksandar Ignovski all picked up victories while Kevin De Bruyne played to a draw with Belgium.

Werder's Serb Ignovski had plenty to celebrate at the end of the international break as Serbia blasted past Wales 6-1 to lead Group A with four points ahead of Belgium and Werder's De Bruyne. Ignovski got an applause from his fans four minutes from the end, being replaced by Srdjan Mijailovic.

Werder defensive boss Sokratis also had success with his Greece national team with a 2-0 win over Lithuania with goals by Sotirios Ninis (55th) and Kostas Mitroglou (72nd) and a strong defensive showing by the 24-year-old Greek defender. The Greeks are atop Group G with six points even with Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Turkey and Mehmet Ekici played to a 3-0 victory over Estonia after they had lost their first qualifier against the Netherlands. The Bremen midfielder once again watched the match from the sidelines.

The Belgians meanwhile played to a 1-1 draw with Croatia, who went ahead after six minutes through Borussia Dortmund's Ivan Perisic. But Belgium equalized in the second minute of first half injury time by Guillaume Gillet. Werder's De Bruyne was once again subbed in by head coach Marc Wilmots for Moussa Dembele - this time in the 72nd minute.

Theo Gebre Selassie and the Czech Republic did not play a World Cup qualifier, instead using the opportunity to play a friendly against Finland, who won 1-0 on Teemo Pukki's goal in the 43rd minute. Czech head coach Michal Bilak used a number of players who did not play much, meaning Gebre Selassie was rested against the Finns.

The U21 team from Austria played their final group match of their qualification for the 2013 European Championship against Scotland despite already having been eliminated. The Austrians won the game 3-2 and Richard Strebinger did not play.
