Preview: The USMNT and Mexico renew their rivalry in Arizona

The heated and historic rivalry between Mexico and the USA will continue on Wednesday night in Arizona. When this friendly fixture was announced, it was looked at as an opportunity to make money.

But from how it looks now, both squads will use this friendly to take a look at some players who have still not cemented their place in the World Cup squad.

Mexican club Peubla have earned themselves some negative attention surrounding Wednesday’s friendly. Since this match is not being played on a designated international day, Puebla have not allowed DeMarcus Beasley and Michael Orozco to take part in this historic rivalry.

Preview: English players will be fighting for a spot in Brazil

Wednesday's match against Denmark will be one of two chances for England's players to prove that they deserve a spot at the World Cup. They will take on Peru at the end of May, with Hodgson making his final 23-man selection on June 2nd.

The young Southampton left-back has been impressive over the last two years and could be finally set to enter the big stage at the age of 18. With Ashley Cole's role at the club level becoming a question mark, it could be time for Luke Shaw to shine.

Australia vs EcuadorPreview: Socceroos to take field without captain Lucas Neill

Despite of signing a short term contract with English side Watford, the 34 year old has failed to make it to Ange Postecoglou’s 23 man squad to face Ecuador. The former Everton man had been without a club after Japanese side Omiya Ardija refused to offer him a contract extension, with incoming manager Ange Postecoglou making his intentions of only including players who feature regularly for their clubs loud and clear.

Apart from the veteran who was axed from the squad, there were some surprise inclusions with all of Curtis Good (Dundee United), Chris Herd (Aston Villa), Massimo Luongo (Swindon Town) and Ben Halloran (Fortuna Dusseldorf) in contention to make their international debuts.

ESPN2 will broadcast this international friendly match between Scotland and the USA at Hampden Park on Friday, November 15.

Preview: Gordon Strachan is still trying to find the right balance

One positive for the Scotland fans will be their countries two victories to end their qualification campaign. 

They defeated Macedonia, but the confidence boosting victory will have been their 2-0 triumph over Croatia. Now Scotland will turn their attention to a USA squad that will be present in next year's World Cup.

Portugal and Brazil will renew an old rivalry when they meet in a friendly match at Gillette Stadium on Tuesday night.

Brazil vs Portugal comes up on September 10, 2013 in USA.Preview: Portuguese and Brazilian fans will fill Gillete Stadium to see their idols

When you hear of a meeting between Portugal and Brazil, you would instantly think of a battle between two football superstars. Whether you are a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, or both, they have both earned their spot at the top of world football's list of great stars.

Italy vs Argentina live streaming, on TV: watch big friendly match on August 14

With over 10 years gone since both these countries met, Italy will host Argentina at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

Preview: Old rivalry will take center stage, with two key figures missing out

Italy and Argentina used to be a big rivalry, but considering they have not locked horns in over a decade, that flame may have burned out. Their last meeting came in a friendly in 1991 when the Albiceleste defeated Italy 2-1. Having been eliminated by Argentina a year earlier at the 1990 World Cup, the Azzurri can now try to seek revenge.

Much to the disappointment of the spectators, Lionel Messi and Mario Balotelli will likely miss this match. Missing these two in a match like this was like missing Maradona, but regardless of their absence, this match should be one of the more interesting matches to be played on Wednesday.

Croatia vs Portugal Preview

Portugal's one goal victory over Russia will have given them a boost of confidence, while Croatia's shock home defeat against Scotland has Igor Stimac asking questions.

Croatia will meet in Switzerland on Monday, after both teams earned two very different results in their previous match on Friday. Igor Stimac's men were stunned at home 0-1 by a goal from Snodgrass in the first half. The Croats realistically only have themselves to blame after having 19 shots, with only two hitting the target.

Paulo Bento's side comes in fresh off a confidence lifting victory over Russia, leapfrogging them and Israel in the Group F standings, although that could be temporary. Fabio Capello's side has two matches in hand and only trail the Portuguese by two points, while Israel can pull even with Portugal if they are to win their game in hand.

Monday's match will give both managers a chance to give some of their players a rest, and the opportunity to test some other options.

International Friendly: Italy vs Brazil a clash of young blood

Tags: Mario Balotelli, David Luiz, Oscar, Stephan El Shaarawy
Tonight’s encounter between Italy and Brazil in Geneva will see the European side fighting hard to register its first triumph over the South American giants in 30 years.
Although Brazil, who will be hosting next year’s Fifa World cup, have automatic qualification, coach Felipe Scolari will still be giving a lot of respect to this encounter as he looks to gel a young squad champions like those of yesteryears.

On the other side, Italian coach Cesare Prandelli has been secretive about revealing his tactics to the press, in order to avoid giving any sort of advantage to his next opponents. Whatever the preparations are, we can expect a cracker at Geneva as two teams with histories decorated with achievements, and squads fuelled by young blood, take on each other.

Tags: Argentina, Brazil, International Friendly
Los Albicelestes will be desperate to obtain a victory in the return leg of the 'Derby of the Americas' on Wednesday.

Both teams will field squads made up exclusively of players who ply their trade in South America, as was the case in the first leg. Great part of the first-choice squads of both teams consist of European-based players.

Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella was criticised for adopting a defensive approach when the teams met in Brazil, but is expected to pay more emphasis to the attack this time around, as the Albicelestes look for what would be a boosting victory.

The back-to-back European champions are more than aware that they are expected to fire on all cylinders, but it would be a big mistake to underestimate their rivals, even if they are ranked 138th in the world.

Tags: Sweden, Brazil, International Friendly
Mano Menezes is more than aware that if his troops don't pick up a positive result on their visit to Sweden he could be out of a job.
Since Brazil lost to Mexico in Saturday's gold medal Olympic final great pressure has mounted on coach Mano Menezes, meaning that if the Selecao fail to convince in their international fixture against Sweden his reign could soon be over.

Menezes will opt for a side relatively close to the one which featured in the Olympic Games, but he will reinforce the side with some of his senior players, including Barcelona's Daniel Alves and Chelsea team-mates Ramires and David Luiz.

Neymar, who was one of Brazil's best players in the Olympic Games, was given permission to continue to represent his national team by his club Santos, even if the Brasileiro is in full swing.
