Another international show will take over this weekend, with a healthy spread of the under-20 World Cup and Confederations Cup.

The Under-20 World Cup kicks off the weekend today, with a match between the United States and Spain stealing the show. On Saturday, Mexico will face Greece live on ESPN, with England playing Iraq on Sunday.

This weekend will also feature the last two matchdays of the Confederations Cup group stage, with Italy and Brazil clashing in the early afternoon on Saturday. Both teams having already clinched a ticket to the knockout rounds, but the match carries importance because the loser will have to face Spain in the semifinals.

On Sunday, Group B will be in action to decide which squads move on to the knockout rounds. Spain is essentially a lock to move on, with a +11 goal differential in the tournament so far. If Nigeria don’t manage to beat Spain, and Uruguay beats Tahiti like everyone is expecting, then Nigeria will fail to advance to the next round.
