The Under-20 World Cup quarterfinals will get your Saturday morning kicked off right, with a healthy dose of MLS action to follow in the evening.
France will square-off with Uzbekistan to get the U20 World Cup quarterfinals underway, with Uruguay vs. Spain immediately following, in the marquee matchup of the weekend.
Neither France nor Uzbekistan have lit the tournament on fire thus far, with both squads earning only four points in the group stage of the tournament. The winner will progress on only their second victory of the tournament, a stark contrast to the Spanish side who mowed through the group stages, winning all three of their matches.
An entertaining spectacle will follow later in the day, when Messi and friends face the World All-Stars in a charity match televised live on ESPN.
