Your daily dose of off-topic shenanigans.

Due to margaritas, this post is coming to you one hour later than usual.  But after the horrendously boring football day that was Saturday, some drink was needed.

Drinks will be needed today as well.  The fortifying kind.  Courage!  Both Slovakia and Hungary play today, and I fear for the worst.

FRANCE vs. IRELAND

When:  14:00 BST: 9am EDT
Where:  Parc Olympique Lyonnais, Lyon
On TV:  ITV 1 (UK); ESPN, ESPN Deportes (USA); elsewhere
Streaming online:  ITV Live (UK); ESPN3 (USA)

Who/what to watch for: A rematch of the match that still lives in infamy in Ireland.  Handball enthusiast Thierry Henry has since moved into the press box; wonder if he'll get to cover it?

GERMANY vs. SLOVAKIA

When:  17:00 BST; 12pm EDT
Where:  Stade Pierre-Mauroy, Lille
On TV:  ITV 1 (UK); ESPN, ESPN Deportes (USA); elsewhere
Streaming online:  ITV Live (UK); ESPN3 (USA)

Who/what to watch for: The many talents of Germany vs. the one majorly talented Hamšík.  And others, too, I'm sure.  Slovakia did beat Germany 3-1 in a pre-tournament friendly, but I doubt they'll be able to pull of a similar result in this one.

HUNGARY vs. BELGIUM

When:  20:00 BST; 3pm EDT
Where:  Stadium Municipal, Toulouse
On TV:  BBC One (UK); ESPN, ESPN Deportes (USA); elsewhere
Streaming online:  BBC iPlayer (UK); ESPN3 (USA)

Who/what to watch for: Much as with Slovakia, I  feel Hungary's (and the 30,000-strong travelling fans') grand Euro adventure will come to an end here.  Not even SweatPantGod Király can save them this time..

ARGENTINA vs. CHILE

When:  8pm EDT; 01:00 BST (next day)
Where:  MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ
On TV:  Premier Sports (UK); Fox Sports 1, Univision (USA); elsewhere
Streaming online:  Fox Soccer 2Go, Fubo (USA)

Who/what to watch for: As it turns out, the final of the 2016 Copa América special edition will be the same as the 2015 Copa América regular edition.  Last summer, Chile pulled off a surprise victory over Messi & Co.  Can Argentina do it this time and collect their first major trophy in over two decades?  With Messi himself on fire, they certainly seem head and shoulders above any other team in the tournament and they already beat Chile earlier in the group stages.
