The final two quarterfinal berths will come out of Group D, and the winner here will take one (with France likely for, but not guaranteed, the other). A draw is good enough for England, which can finally field Wayne Rooney. Replay: ESPN Deportes, 5 p.m.
Also

Copa Libertadores Sub-20

COPA LIBERTADORES
Santos (Brazil) at Corinthians (Brazil)
Fox Deportes, 5:30 p.m.

Corinthians is one step from the title series after winning its road leg as the semifinals began last week, with Emerson Sheik's first-half goal providing a 1-0 triumph. Hold on at home, and Boca Juniors or Universidad de Chile await next week.

MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER
Galaxy at Real Salt Lake
KDOC/Channel 56 and KWHY/Channel 22, 6 p.m.

Everything finally clicked for L.A. on Sunday, but Real Salt Lake is a very different prospect than were the Portland Timbers, especially at Rio Tinto Stadium. RSL is atop the Western Conference and Supporters' Shield standings, with more than double (32-14) the Galaxy's points.
Also
Toronto FC at Houston Dynamo, MLS Direct Kick, 6 p.m.
San Jose Earthquakes at Colorado Rapids, MLS Direct Kick, 6:30 p.m.
Sporting Kansas City at Seattle Sounders, MLS Direct Kick, 7 p.m.
Montreal Impact at Chivas USA, Prime Ticket, 7:30 and 11 p.m.
New York Red Bulls at Vancouver Whitecaps, MLS Direct Kick, 8 p.m.

L.A. Misioneros at Southern California Seahorses
Maranatha High School (Pasadena), 7 p.m.

The struggling Seahorses head north from their La Mirada base for a game in the San Gabriel Valley, and against a local rival.

MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER
Montreal Impact at Chivas USA
Home Depot Center (Carson), 7:30 p.m.

Former Goats captain Jesse Marsch brings the expansion Impact to Home Depot Center for the first time, and they're coming off a blowout win over Seattle. Chivas has been shut out five times in eight home games, including last weekend's loss to Real Salt Lake.
