  • TELEVISION

INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLY
Estonia at France
ESPN Deportes, 11:55 a.m.

The French are unbeaten in 20 games, since September 2010, and appear to be one of the favorites to win Euro 2012, given Spain's injuries. This game, in Le Mans, is their final prep for the European Championship and their opener next week against England.
Also
Serbia at Sweden, ESPN Deportes, 9:55 a.m.
Romania at Austria, ESPN Deportes, 2 p.m.

U.S. OPEN CUP
Cal FC at Seattle Sounders
Fox Soccer Channel, 7:30 p.m.
Eric Wynalda
and his band of undervalued prospects have been the story of the tournament, reeling off three victories, the last over Major League Soccer's Portland Timbers. Now Thousand Oaks' Cal FC takes on MLS's Sounders, the three-time defending champion, and the winner heads to the quarterfinals.

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 6
  • TELEVISION

2008 EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP
Portugal vs. Germany

Also
Croatia vs. Turkey, ESPN Classic, 7:30 a.m.
Spain vs. Italy, ESPN Classic, 10 a.m.
Netherlands vs. Russia, ESPN Classic, noon
Brazilian Brasileirão
São Paulo at Internacional, ESPN Deportes, 5:30 p.m.

  • ON LOCAL FIELDS

USL W-LEAGUE
Victoria Highlanders at Pali Blues
Palisades High School (Pacific Palisades), 7 p.m.

The Blues have won all four of their games and conceded just one goal, and the next week -- against the Canadians here, then on the trek to Colorado -- could determine whether they'll win the West.

USL PREMIER DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE
Ventura County Fusion at Southern California Seahorses
Barbour Field, Biola University (La Mirada), 7 p.m.
The Fusion, at this moment, might be the finest PDL club So Cal has seen: They're sprinting through the PDL's Southwest Division and coming off a fine U.S. Open Cup run. The Seahorses are known making things tough on superior sides.
Also
Pali Blues at L.A. Misioneros, Carver Middle School (Los Angeles), 7:30 p.m.
