26 World Cup Qualifiers to watch ft Uruguay-Argentina, Spain-Italy, Honduras-USA

August 30, 2017 By Ali M.
The likes of Argentina and Uruguay lock horns in this international break, but the exciting clashes do not stop there.

The international break is back. Play has paused in the leagues, with football players joining their national side. Games will be played between August 30 - September 5, with World Cup qualifiers dominating this break.

There will be action across all confederations - CONMEBOL, CONCACAF, UEFA, and AFC in particular. 2:45pm ET is the common kick for the European qualifiers, with matches in North and South America starting in the evenings.

The games can be followed on a number of channels, mainly Fox Sports, ESPN, and beIN Sports. Check out the top 26 qualifiers to watch.

Thursday, August 31, 2017 World Cup qualifying fixtures: 

1. Japan vs Australia at 6:35 AM ET

Japan are currently top of their table. Their last meeting with Australia ended 1-1, but the Socceroos need victory if they wish to climb out of third.

2. France vs Netherlands at 2:45 PM ET

France are in second; Netherlands are in third. Victory would improve one’s hopes of qualifying while extinguishing the other.

3. Portugal vs Faroe Islands at 2:45 PM ET

Portugal are aiming to catch up with leaders Switzerland. Cristiano and Co. must hope their rivals lose their perfect record in order to slash their lead.

4. Venezuela vs Colombia at 5:00 PM ET

Colombia are second,  Venezuela have been eliminated. Los Cafeteros must and should win in order to strengthen their grip on that automatic qualification.

5. Chile vs Paraguay at 6:30 PM ET

Fourth and eighth clash in this fixture. A slip-up for La Roja could see them drop out of the top-four.

6. Uruguay vs Argentina at 7:00 PM ET

Messi and Co. must triumph. Victory could see La Albiceleste enter the automatic qualification zone, whilst a defeat will make things difficult for the 2014 runners-up.

7. Brazil vs Ecuador at 8:45 PM ET

Brazil are already through to Russia. Ecuador could snatch the play-off spot from Argentina should Sampaoli’s men slip up. This should be an exciting clash.

Friday, September 1, 2017 World Cup qualifying fixtures:

1. Czech vs Germany at 2:45 PM ET

Die Mannschaft have enjoyed a perfect start so far and are well on their way to Russia. Low has enough quality in his side to see off Czech Republic.

2. Malta vs England at 2:45 PM ET

Only two points separate the Three Lions from second-placed Slovakia. Southgate’s men must not drop points.

3. USA vs Costa Rica at 6:30 PM ET

The 2017 Gold Cup winners have only won twice in six outings. Costa Rica, who currently hold second spot, are three points ahead. Victory could do wonders for both sides.

4. Trinidad and Tobago vs Honduras at 8:00 PM ET

The two bottom teams lock horns in this fixture. A win for Honduras could keep them in the running to qualify. Defeat would all but kill their hopes.

5. Mexico vs Panama at 9:30 PM ET

Mexico, top of the table, take on Panama, who occupy the inter-confederations play-offs spot. El Tri are undefeated in the qualifiers so far.

Saturday, September 2, 2017 World Cup qualifying fixtures:

1. Georgia vs Ireland Republic at 12:00 PM ET

Republic of Ireland are second in Group D, tied on points with leaders Serbia. Victory over Georgia could help their chances of making the 2018 World Cup.

2. Spain vs Italy at 2:45 PM ET

These two European powerhouses are level on points, with Spain ahead on goal difference. They played out a 1-1 draw in their previous meeting; expect an exciting affair.

3. Ukraine vs Turkey at 2:45 PM ET

Despite being fourth and third in Group I, respectively, Ukraine and Turkey narrowly trail leaders Croatia. A loss would mean the end of the road for one of these two sides.

Sunday, September 3, 2017 World Cup qualifying fixtures:

1. Hungary vs Portugal at 2:45 PM ET

When these two sides met in Euro 2016, they played out a thrilling 3-3 draw. Cristiano Ronaldo will be back to haunt Hungary, as he looks to maintain his excellent goalscoring form.

2. Greece vs Belgium at 2:45 PM ET

Last time these two sides met, the Red Devils were held to a 1-1 draw. A similar result could fire the host to claim that automatic qualification spot.

Monday, September 4, 2017 World Cup qualifying fixtures:

1. England vs Slovakia at 2:45 PM ET

This will probably be the biggest game of this group. The top two sides face off. Their last clash saw the Three Lions clinch a dramatic 1-0 win. Do not miss the return leg. 

Tuesday, September 5, 2017 World Cup qualifying fixtures:

1. Australia vs Thailand at 6:00 AM ET

Thailand, despite having already been eliminated, were able to earn a point in their previous meeting with Australia – they drew 2-2. The Socceroos cannot afford to drop more points.

2. Bolivia vs Chile at 4:00 PM ET

Bolivia have been eliminated, whilst the Copa America champions are in the mix for a spot in Russia. Alexis Sanchez and Co. should dispatch their opponents with ease. Failure to do so could result in a failure to qualify.

3. Colombia vs Brazil at 4:00 PM ET

This will be a thrilling encounter. Just as they entertained fans in the 2014 World Cup, James Rodriguez’s side and Neymar’s crew will battle it out.

4. Ecuador vs Peru at 5:00 PM ET

Peru stand an outside chance of booking their ticket to Russia. They trail fifth-placed Argentina by four points. The only thing in between them and La Albiceleste in the standings is sixth-placed Ecuador.

5. Honduras vs USA at 5:30 PM ET

Third-placed USA hold the last automatic qualification spot by a mere point. Honduras are only three points behind the Stars and Stripes. There is a lot to play for in this qualifier.

6. Argentina vs Venezuela at 7:30 PM ET

Venezuela have already been eliminated. This will also be Sampaoli’s first home game since taking over Argentina. There should be no reason for Messi and Co. to drop points.

7. Paraguay vs Uruguay at 8:00 PM ET

Paraguay, another team with an outside chance of qualifying, take on Uruguay. La Celeste have already lost five times in the qualifiers, and could suffer defeat against Argentina. Their clash with Paraguay is a must-win game.

8. Costa Rica vs Mexico at 10:00 PM ET

Their last meeting ended in a 2-0 win for El Tri. As a result, Mexico now lead Costa Rica by three points in the table. This game could change that, however.
