Friday Internationals Open Thread

Prandelli makes funny faces. - Claudio Villa

A meaty schedule with some important games - if you're into the whole international football scene - on tap today, so let's dive right in.

Actually, if I may be sold as to recommend a quick read, head on over to the New York Times who have a pretty good article on the (renewed) Hungary - Romania rivalry, both on and off the pitch. That match starts at 2pm EDT (ESPN3) and you can bet your bottom dollar euro that I'll be watching.

Previous to that one, I'll probably be keeping track of Petr Cech and the Czech Republic (12pm EDT; ESPN3). And for the nightcap, it's the obvious choice of Costa Rica vs. USA: Revenge of The Snow Game at 10pm EDT (beIN Sport).

Outside of my nationalistic urges, I might take a quick gander at Belgium or England or any of the other matches in which Chelsea players may be involved.

Discuss.
