June 5/6: What to watch, where to go

TUESDAY, JUNE 5

  • 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

ESPN Classic, 2 p.m.

Only two days until Euro 2012 kicks off, so ESPN Classic is presenting all four quarterfinal games -- this one was the best -- and following up Thursday with both semifinals, the title game and the best match from group play.

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.
