After yesterday's friendly action between neighbors Belgium and the Netherlands, we get a far more intense and important game between two neighbors halfway around the world.  Here's how to watch Chelsea players in international action for Thursday, November 10, 2016.

(And no, this does not include Juan Cuadrado, who will be playing for Colombia against Chile at 20:30 GMT.)

ENGLAND U21 vs. Italy U21 (Friendly)

When:  19:45 GMT; 2:45pm EST
Where:  St. Mary's Stadium, Southampton, England
Who:  Tammy Abraham, Lewis Baker, Nathaniel Chalobah, Ruben Loftus-Cheek
How:  BT Sport 1 (UK); Fox Soccer Plus (USA); elsewhere

Why: Interim U21 coach Aidy Boothroyd is looking to keep his side in good form as preparations for next summer's European Championships continue.

BRAZIL vs. Argentina (World Cup 2018 qualifier)

When:  23:45 GMT; 6:45pm EST
Where:  Mineirão, Belo Horizonte, Brazil
Who:  Willian (42)
How:  none (UK; LOL?); beIN Sports (USA); elsewhere

Why: Brazil have won four in a row to lead the group after a slow start to qualifying (and yet another Copa America disappointment), but Argentina are winless in three and if qualifying ended today, they'd miss the 2018 World Cup.  No Oscar this time for Brazil unlike in October, which I suppose isn't surprising given that he's barely played for Chelsea since.  No David Luiz either, which is okay.
