Lionel Messi and Argentina are one of the favorites to win the 2014 World Cup and today will offer our last chance to see them in action before the big tournament gets underway on Wednesday.
Argentina faces Slovenia in one of the day’s tune-up matches for world powers as Messi, Sergio Aguero and Argentina’s other stars look to avoid the recent injury bug plaguing world soccer stars.
Defending champion Spain is also in action, taking on El Salvador. The reigning World Cup champs should have a good chance to flash their trademark skill against an overmatched El Salvador side still rebuilding after having several national team players banned for match-fixing.
Looking for a match-up featuring two World Cup teams? Look no further than today’s England-Honduras clash. The Catrachos haven’t had the best run of form leading up to the World Cup, and they will look to knock off an England side looking for a good test to get them ready for their eventual World Cup group stage clash against Costa Rica.
