      Dani Alves’ Brazil defeat Gonzalo Higuain’s Argentina, while Emil Audero’s Italy Under 20s fall to Germany

      Thursday marked the first day of this November international break, with three Juventus first-team members already involved in the action. 

      First up in the afternoon, Emil Audero played the full 90 minutes for Italy’s Under 20s in a 1-0 reverse at the hands of Germany’s identical age category in the Quattro Nazioni friendly tournament.

      The Bianconeri goalkeeper will be back between the sticks for the Azzurrini on Tuesday when they come up against Switzerland.

      Last night night would then stage arguably one of the biggest fixtures featuring Juve players during this month’s international break when Dani Alves’ Brazil eased to a 3-0 victory over Gonzalo Higuain’s Argentina courtesy of goals by Philippe Coutinho, Neymar and Paulinho.

      Both Bianconeri representatives played the full 90 in a match that sees the Selecao maintain top spot in the South American qualifying group for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, while the Albiceleste drop to sixth place. 

      Juan Cuadrado, meanwhile, sat out yesterday’s goalless draw between Colombia and Chile through suspension. 

      Today sees Patrice Evra and Sami Khedira take to the field with France and Germany respectively. While Les Bleus host Sweden in what could be a decisive contest at the top of their group, Die Mannschaft travel to San Marino. Both matches kick off at 20.45 CET.
