Brauner was called up to the Philippines squad for the 2007 ASEAN Football Championship qualifying tournament in November 2006. Although he was not able to take part due to passport problems.[4] He later won the Filipino player of the decade in 2007.

As part of the Philippines' preparations for the tournament, a friendly match was scheduled against Singapore on 7 January 2007. He then made his debut in that match, coming on as an 87th-minute substitute,[5] and is his only appearance for the Philippines to date.
