World Cup qualifying springs back into action on Friday, with no less than 34 matches to be played around the world.

Many of the big powers in European soccer face some of the minnows, including England hosting Moldova, France visiting Georgia, and the Netherlands visiting Estonia. However, there are a few intriguing matchups on tap, with Scotland hosting Belgium, Germany facing their neighbors Austria, and Finland, who drew Spain, 1-1 in Gijon, hosting La Roja.

In South America, Argentina get the matchday off but that doesn’t mean there aren’t good games to watch. AS Monaco duo Radamel Falcao and James Rodriguez look to take Colombia joint top of the table when they face Ecuador at home while Luis Suarez plays his first competitive match since the Confederations Cup, due to his suspension with Liverpool.

Later in the evening, CONCACAF draws the spotlight, especially with a crucial match between Mexico and Honduras at Estadio Azteca, with Honduras threatening to become the first team to beat El Tri in a World Cup qualifier in the famous stadium.
