Today Is Officially The Greatest Day Of International Fixtures EVER

For many of us reading this article, the international break is a time of boredom. You find yourself waiting around for the club season to get back up and running, but today's fixture list well and truly breaks that tradition.


In one of the most packed schedules we've seen in some time, Gareth Southagate's England will try and build on their win against Holland last week with another positive performance against Italy, who won't feature in the World Cup this summer.

Then in arguably the tie of the day, Brazil will seek revenge over Germany after that infamous 7-1 defeat in the 2014 World Cup semi-final.

Joachim Low's side were 5-0 up after 29 minutes thanks to goals from Thomas Muller, Toni Kroos, Sami Khedira and Miroslav Klose, but it most certainly will be different this time around.

The massive games don't stop there. Spain will host Argentina at the Wanda Metropolitano this evening as Lionel Messi looks set to return to the fold after missing out against Germany, while France take on World Cup hosts Russia.

Didier Deschamps named his 24-man squad for the pair of friendly matches against Colombia and Russia this month and many suggested that they have the strongest squad at the tournament.

Nigeria will wear their wonderful new kit against Serbia at League Two side Barnet's stadium, and finally, Colombia will face Australia in the final mouthwatering game of the evening.

Let your mate know that the international break is actually producing gold rather than stale, boring fixtures.

I know what I'm doing tonight.
