Internationals: Danny dazzles

Angelo Henriquez was the Red in question, grabbing the final goal from close range in the 80th minute as the Chileans crushed Iraq 6-0. Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez was unquestionably the star man, scoring twice himself and then setting up a brace for Wigan Athletic winger Jean Beausejour.

Former Reds star Cristiano Ronaldo was on target to prevent Robin van Persie's national side pulling off a fine away win in Portugal. Netherlands led for the vast majority of the match, from Kevin Strootman's early strike until the home side equalised through their talisman with three minutes to spare. Van Persie started and played for just shy of an hour of the 1-1 draw, prior to making way for Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.

Earlier in the day, Shinji Kagawa scored for Japan in their international friendly defeat to Uruguay; his goal arrived on 55 minutes, after a defensive mix-up left him with a simple tap-in from close range. However, the South Americans ran out 4-2 victors with ex-United striker Diego Forlan grabbing half of their tally.
