A full slate of World Cup warm-up games will air this weekend as many teams are days away from packing up and heading to Brazil.
For U.S. Men’s National Team fans, the weekend will include games featuring all four members of the “Group of Death”. Germany is the first to kick-off, playing Armenia at 2:45pm on Friday, shortly followed by Portugal vs. Mexico at Gillette Stadium. Saturday, the USMNT takes on Nigeria at 6pm and on Monday night Ghana will take on South Korea in Miami.
Among the other important games this weekend, World Cup host Brazil, perennial contenders Argentina and current champions Spain will all be in action.
MLS fans will also be excited to see big match ups in both conferences. In a battle of surprising play-off contenders D.C.
