Because everyone loves a pointless friendly, and because an expanded Euro 2016 field means that even the qualifies for that tournament are more or less pointless friendlies (seriously, look at the qualification criteria and tell me why an expanded Euros was a good idea, or why they even bother qualifying teams - almost everyone gets in).
But still, there are games being played, and I'm sure many of you will watch some of them, so here's a conversation bucket for you to drip your collective wisdom into. It's also kind of a catch-all open thread, so feel free to talk about whatever, within the rules of course.
Broadcast info for all these games is on livesoccer.tv.
