Euro 2016 Day 4; Copa America Centenario Day 11: Game times, TV schedule, live streaming

Your daily dose of off-topic shenanigans.

None of the three Euro 2016 matches on Sunday were really all that entertaining — Germany vs. Ukraine was okay in spurts, but otherwise everything was just a bit too blah — but Brazil's shock elimination from the Copa America in the group stage more than made up for it.  The handball just added extra controversy; while they might feel hard done by that decision, Dunga's days as national team boss may be numbered anyway.

Today's slate of matches should more than make up for yesterday's poor showings.  Must see TV with Spain and Zlatan and Hazard vs. Conte — just too bad these couldn't be on Sunday instead of a workday.  Later, I will be at Levi's Stadium for the Uruguay vs. Jamaica match, hoping to catch the man, the myth, the legend that is Michael Hector in action.

Onwards!

SPAIN vs. CZECH REPUBLIC

When:  14:00 BST; 9am EDT
Where:  Stadium Municipal, Toulouse
On TV:  ITV 1 (UK); ESPN, ESPN Deportes (USA); elsewhere
Streaming online:  ITV Live (UK); ESPN3 (USA)

Who / what to watch for: Fabregas and Pedro and Azpilicueta (plus rumored transfer target Alvaro Morata) vs. Petr Čech.  Spain have won the last to Euros; can they make it three in a row?

IRELAND vs. SWEDEN

When:  17:00 BST; 12pm EDT
Where:  Stade de France, Paris
On TV:  BBC One (UK); ESPN, ESPN Deportes (USA); elsewhere
Streaming online:  BBC iPlayer (UK); ESPN3 (USA)

Who / What to watch for: ZLATAN.

BELGIUM vs. ITALY

When:  20:00 BST; 3pm EDT
Where:  Parc Olympique Lyonnais, Lyon
On TV:  BBC One (UK); ESPN, ESPN Deportes (USA); elsewhere
Streaming online:  BBC iPlayer (UK); ESPN3 (USA)

Who / what to watch for: Undoubtedly the match of the day, with two Chelsea stars (Hazard, Courtois) taking on the incoming Chelsea manager and his "workmanlike" Italy squad.  Yet, there's a much greater chance of Italy playing more as a team, as a cohesive unit than the individual, often disjointed brilliance of the Belgians, so this one could be anyone's game.  Plenty of players on both sides who have been linked recently with Chelsea, plus I'll be hoping to see at least a cameo appearance from Il Faraone, Stephan El Shaarawy.

MEXICO vs. VENEZUELA

When:  8pm EDT; 01:00 BST (next day)
Where:  NRG Stadium, Houston, TX
On TV: Premier Sports (UK); Fox Sports 1, Univision (USA); elsewhere
Streaming online: Fox Soccer 2Go

Who / what to watch for: Both teams have already qualified, so this one's basically for the right to avoid having to play Argentina in the quarterfinals.  Mexico have won eleven in a row and have not lost a match since last summer's final group game at the Copa (21 games, and counting).

URUGUAY vs. JAMAICA

When:  10pm EDT; 03:00 BST (next day)
Where:  Levi's Stadium, Santa Clara, CA
On TV: Premier Sports (UK); Fox Sports 1, UniMás (USA); elsewhere
Streaming online: Fox Soccer 2Go

Who / what to watch for: Both teams have already been eliminated, much to Luis Suarez's chagrin.  Hopefully Michael Hector gets the start again for the Reggae Boyz.
