This Weekend's Soccer on TV

While clubs take a break from league action this weekend, European and African countries look to take their next steps toward Russia in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches.

Headlining the weekend’s fixtures will be Belgium, the No. 2 team in the latest FIFA World Rankings, taking on No. 23, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Both sides picked up shutout victories in their group openers last month and are looking to draw some early separation as leaders in the table.

Other UEFA powerhouses like Spain and Italy will take part in road matches at Albania and Macedonia, respectively, while reigning champions Germany will host Czech Republic.

The United States Men’s National Team, on the other hand, will travel to Cuba for a match between the two sides for the first time since 1947. The contest is scheduled to take place on Friday evening, barring Hurricane Matthew causing havoc in Havana.

Mexico, meanwhile, will partake in an international friendly of their own as they travel to New Zealand.

Stateside, the lone MLS game will carry on between the Houston Dynamo and the Colorado Rapids on Saturday, but the NWSL final on Sunday between the Washington Spirit and the Western New York Flash should provide a little extra fireworks.

Here is a rundown of all the soccer action on TV this weekend, with all times Eastern:

    US U17 women need a win against defending champ Japan to make it out of their group. Japan is likely through already as Ghana would need to make up a 14 goal difference. US would need to win 3-0 to win their group. A loss or a tie could still see the US through if Paraguay beats Ghana, baring Paraguay winning by 15 goals.
