- 2010 World Cup, CONCACAF, CONMEBOL, World Cup qualifying
One thing I do enjoy is an international fixture date. Loads of games and lots of interesting storylines. Today is just that day around the world as countries from all over take part in another round of World Cup qualifying matches.
Aside from the CONCACAF fun there are some great matches across the pond, particularly one in Croatia. That’s right its England-Croatia, round two. England surely hasn’t forgotten how the Croats eliminated them from Euro 2008 qualifying and now the Croatians stand between them and an automatic berth in the World Cup.
So if you got the day off, look at this menu of games that you may be able to see if your TV package has these channels.
- 8 a.m.– FSC- North Korea vs. South Korea (in Shanghai)
- 11a.m.– FSC- Russia vs. Wales
- 2 p.m.– Setanta USA- Turkey vs. Belgium
- 2:30 p.m.– FSC- Macedonia vs. Holland
- 2:45 p.m.– GolTV- Italy vs. Georgia
- 4 p.m.– Setanta USA- Portugal vs. Denmark
- 4:50 p.m.– GolTV- Spain vs. Armenia
- 5 p.m.– FSC- Slovenia vs. Slovakia
- 6:45 p.m.– Setanta USA- France vs. Serbia
- 8 p.m.– ESPN2/Galavision- USA vs. Trinidad & Tobago
- 8 p.m.– FSC- Uzbekistan vs. Australia
- 8:45 p.m.– Setanta USA- Finland vs. Germany
- 9 p.m.– Telemundo- Mexico vs. Canada
Some games to keep an eye out for:
- Croatia vs. England - England will look for revenge after Croatia kept them out of Euro 2008.
- Mexico vs. Canada – Mexico is nearly impossible to beat at home and Canada is probably already in desperation mode.
- North Korea vs. South Korea - Could this one be any bigger due to the politically-charged background? This one is being played at a neutral site (Shanghai).
- Uruguay vs Ecuador - Ecuador needs a win to pull back in serious contention in CONMEBOL.
- Honduras vs. Jamaica - Honduras can start to pull away from the pack in its group with a win here. Jamaica needs a win here, just simple as that.
- USA vs. Trinidad and Tobago – Oh yeah the US plays tonight. Better believe that Toyota Park is going to be a great venue for it too!
