Wednesday is a busy day for Americans throughout both Europe and Mexico.

Two U.S. Men’s National Team regulars combine in the headlining match of the day, which comes in German DFB-Pokal action. A spot in the competition’s semifinal is on the line on Wednesday as Bobby Wood and Hamburg face off with Fabian Johnson and Borussia Dortmund for the right to join Timmy Chandler and Eintracht Frankfurt in the next stage.

In England, another cup competition continues on Wednesday featuring an American manager. David Wagner’s Huddersfield Town faces a massive test as they look to overcome Manchester City in a replay of their FA Cup clash. In the first leg, the Championship club scraped out a 0-0 draw, but Wagner and co. now face a trip to the Etihad as they look to keep their cup run alive.

Elsewhere, Jose Torres and Tigres face CONCACAF Champions League action, Emerson Hyndman and Perry Kitchen headline the Scottish schedule and Matt Miazga faces a cup clash of his own in the Dutch Cup.
