USA-Mexico, Germany-Brazil among several international friendlies Wednesday

Major European leagues have either begun or are about to begin. The last thing on any player’s mind is rejoining the national team. So of course, FIFA scheduled a fixture date. No World Cup or European qualifiers, just friendlies. (Okay, so the Faroe Islands are visiting Northern Ireland in a Euro match.) Here’s what you can watch — or ignore (all times are Eastern):

Lithuania-Armenia in Kaunas noon

Latvia-Finland in Riga 12:30 p.m.

Norway-Czech Republic in Oslo 2 p.m.

Ukraine-Sweden in Kharkov 2 p.m.

Germany-Brazil in Stuttgart 2:30 p.m. ESPN Classic, ESPN Deportes,

For more.....

Austria-Slovakia in Klagenfurt 2:30 p.m.

Wales-Australia in Cardiff 2:45 p.m.

Ireland-Croatia in Dublin 2:45 p.m.

Northern Ireland-Faroe Islands in Belfast 2:45 p.m.

France-Chile in Montpellier 3 p.m. (tape at 5 on ESPN Deportes)

USA-Mexico in Philadelphia 9 p.m. ESPN2, Univision,,

Others of interest (but apparently not televised in the States): Japan-South Korea, Scotland-Denmark, Russia-Serbia and, best of all, Italy-Spain.
