England and Germany will clash in a friendly match on November 19, 2013.Preview: Much more than just a friendly between two rivals

The German camp is currently trying to fully absorb the loss of one of their own to an ACL injury. Sami Khedira is set to miss the next six months of competitive football and might not be match fit ahead of the World Cup. Joachim Löw, while unhappy, is not too worried. He sent both Philipp Lahm and Manuel Neuer home from the camp to Bayern so as to experiment with the rest of the squad members.

The defensive midfield combination he will try will thus be devoid of both the stalwarts from the past three years, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Sami Khedira. Löw has also sent Mesut Özil back to Arsenal. He has been criticized for favoring the Bayern players ahead of Dortmund’s players as he has allowed the Bayern players additional rest by sending two of them back before the crunch fixture against BVB on Saturday. Löw replied in a rather straightforward manner. This is what he had to say according to ESPN:

Chile should take this friendly match very seriously. It is an excellent opportunity for them to check their flaws and test their strength in depth.

Switzerland vs Brazil is one of the biggest friendly matches taking place on Wednesday, August 13, 2013. Watch it live via BT Sport and beIN Sport.

Neymar is set to play in the Switzerland vs Brazil friendly.Preview: Both teams prepare for a good World Cup 2014 tourney

Almost exactly two months after kicking off their 2013 Confederations Cup campaign with a promising 3-0 victory over Japan, eventual tournament champions Brazil are back on the field of play. On Wednesday night, the Samba Boys will be at the St Jakob-Park to face Europe’s Switzerland.

World Cup winning manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has formed a stable squad this summer. With Neymar leading the attack and David Luiz’s enviable partnership with Thiago Silva in defence, the Brazilian squad looks good enough to dismantle any team.

Scolari is looking to stick with his Confederations Cup squad. PSG’s Maxwell could clinch his first international cap as he is the team’s only new inclusion ahead of Wednesday’s friendly match against the Swiss.

The latter are enjoying a good run in the UEFA World Cup qualifiers. They occupy the top spot in Group E with a four-point advantage over second-placed Albania. The Euro 2008 co-hosts are yet to lose, having won four of their six games so far.

Beating Brazil is not the main objective of Ottmar Hitzfeld’s side although the intent to create an upset is there. Bayern Munich’s Shaqiri is expected to play along with Senderos. For Switzerland, the road to the 2014 FIFA World Cup continues later this year against Iceland and Norway.

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.
