This Weekend's Soccer on TV

As another wave of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches take place across the world this weekend, one coach looks to solidify his position at the help while another hopes to simply hang onto it.

Gareth Southgate will attempt to guide England to its second win in three matches under his management, but to do so would come at the expense of Gordon Strachan and Scotland on Friday. Southgate, who was put in charge for four matches following Sam Allardyce’s unceremonious dismissal in late September, has helped the Three Lions beat Malta, 2-0, before drawing Slovenia, 0-0. Scotland, on the other hand, has won just three games in nine tries since January of 2015 under Strachan. The two sides’ clash at Wembley Stadium will surely carry plenty of implication on both coaches’ future.

Other European powerhouses like France and Germany will take on Sweden and San Marino, respectively, while Italy visits Liechtenstein and Spain hosts Macedonia. The most competitive match according to FIFA World Rankings, however, will be a clash between Croatia (No. 16) and Iceland (No. 21).

In CONCACAF action, apart from the highly anticipated match between the U.S. and Mexico, Honduras will be in action against Panama while Costa Rica travels to face Trinidad and Tobago.

On the women’s side, the U.S. will host an international friendly against Romania, while the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup will start in Papua New Guinea.

Back home in the states, the NASL season comes to a close with the championship match between the New York Cosmos and the Indy Eleven.
