England is a point away from cementing a place at the 2012 European championships, but the Three Lions will have to earn that point on the road at Montenegro.
That match is one of the few highlights among the day's European qualifiers, in addition to the anticipated matchup between Germany and Turkey. Italy-Serbia, Greek-Croatia and Czech Republic-Spain are all noteworthy games between quality sides.
CONCACAF World Cup qualifying continues as well, with teams looking to make more headway toward clinching a place in the third round. Favorites Canada, El Salvador and Guatemala are all in action, but they're all competing on the road, where points are more difficult to come by.
In South America, a few high-profile World Cup qualifying matches take place, including the Argentina-Chile bout that is sure to captivate its audience. The United States' opponent for Tuesday's friendly, Ecuador, is also in action, taking on Venezuela.
