USA! Germany! Brazil! England! Oh my! / Sunday Open Thread

Laurence Griffiths

Are you ready for some football? A Sunday night party?

You have two choices. One, is an English-speaking country playing against vastly more talented and exciting players, thinking that this international friendly carries some meaning.

And the other is USA vs. Germany.

Germany, now with added Andre Schurrle, kick off in 15 minutes (ESPN2 / ESPN3), while Brazil vs. England starts at the top of the hour (beIN Sport). Here are some lineups for ya:

USA starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Tim Howard | DaMarcus Beasley, Matt Besler, Omar Gonzalez, Brad Evans | Michael Bradley, Jermaine Jones | Fabian Johnson, Clint Dempsey, Graham Zusi | Jozy Altidore

Germany starting lineup (4-2-3-1):

There's also a women's friendly that may be worth a few of your minutes. Canada vs. USA, the rematch of the epic semifinals from the Olympics, is set for 4:30 P.M. EDT and will be live on ESPNEWS / ESPN3.
