INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLY
Ukraine at Austria
ESPN Deportes, 11:25 a.m.

The Ukrainians are wrapping up preparations for Euro 2012, for which they are a co-host, and they're striving to maintain focus amid warnings that the racism in their country and Poland is so bad that fans who are not white should not attend the tournament, a charge their government has attacked as unfair and inaccurate.

  • TELEVISION
INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLY
Belgium at England

The English have high hopes for a title run at Euro 2012, but they always have high hopes -- usually unrealistic hopes -- and always falter. Maybe this time will be different. A final prep, with the nation's “centurions” -- David Beckham included -- to be honored at halftime.
