Yesterday, my TV was tuned to soccer for about 12 hours. It was both glorious and degenerate at the same time. To be fair, I wasn’t actively watching anywhere close to every minute of that, but it was still a borderline-unhealthy amount of soccer. And I’m ready to do it again today. Oh, and I also watched the U.S. Olympic Trials.

Today’s matches:

Sweden vs. Slovakia, 9 am ET, ESPN
Croatia vs. Czech Republic, 12 pm ET, ESPN
England vs. Scotland, 3 pm ET, ESPN

Chile vs. Bolivia, 5 pm ET, ESPN
Argentina vs. Uruguay, 8 pm ET, ESPN

In yesterday’s tilts, Ukraine bested North Macedonia 2-1 in a fun, but perhaps lacking in a bit of quality, match. Belgium came from behind to beat Denmark 2-1 — turns out bringing Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard, and Axel Witsel on a substitutes is pretty darn good. And the Netherlands beat Austria 2-0 — dominating performance from the Oranje and a disappointing one from Austria.

Colombia and Venezuela played to a 0-0 draw, which considering the COVID-19 difficulties that Venezuela are navigating (something like half their original squad and staff tested positive), is an impressive result. Brazil smashed Peru 4-0 and looks to be a clear favorite to win the tournament.

The Euro 2020 matches will be streamed stateside on ESPN+ and FuboTV. The Copa America matches are on Fox Sports Live and FuboTV.
