Sunday Afternoon Open Thread

Come watch soccer and chat with the folks at Cartilage Free Captain.

There's plenty of football on this afternoon. There were already three matches in the U-20 World Cup this morning and now the England U-20 team are getting ready to take on the Iraq U-20 team. It's the first ever meeting between the two sides. Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane makes the starting XI for England. His Spurs colleague, Alex Pritchard, is on the bench. In the US, thisgame can be seen on ESPNU.

There's also the final matches of the Confederations Cup group stages this afternoon. Spain takes on Nigeria and Tahiti take on Uruguay. Tahiti are coming of a 10-goal drubbing at the hands of Spain and will be hoping to, at the very least, make this match more respectable. Nigeria face a big task against Spain, but the Super Eagles need a victory in order to ensure their advancement, as Uruguay are almost certain to win as well. Both matches kickoff at 3:00pm and can be seen on ESPN and ESPN2 respectively.

So, enjoy the football, chat it up, and have an excellent Sunday.
