Top games to watch in world soccer this week

Top games to watch in world soccer this week:

Monday

10 p.m., Argentina vs. Chile, Fox Sports 1: That these two are in same group in the Copa America Centenario is a shame. Chile is the reigning Copa America champ led by Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal. Argentina is one of the favorites with a roster featuring Sergio Aguero, Angel di Maria and Javier Mascherano, to name a few.

Tuesday

8 p.m., U.S. vs. Costa Rica, Fox Sports 1: Thanks to the draw between Paraguay and Costa Rica on Saturday, a win by the U.S. will vault it right back into a place of potential advancement in the group in the Copa America Centenario. However, it must get much better performances from its midfielders to make that happen.

10:30 p.m., Colombia vs. Paraguay, Fox Sports 1: A Colombia win and it can already book a place in the next round of the Centenario.

Wednesday

7:30 p.m., Brazil vs. Haiti, Fox Sports 1: Brazil are among the favorites to win the Centenario because of a roster that's loaded with some of the world's best players at their positions Haiti shouldn't provide much of a challenge. However, Brazil looked mostly toothless – and should have lost 1-0 to Ecuador if not for a horrible referring decision — while Haiti had a chance to tie its first game on the game's last touch.

Thursday

7:30 p.m., Uruguay vs. Venezuela, Fox Sports 1: Uruguay, which lost 3-1 to Mexico in its first game, may be without striker Luiz Suarez, arguably the world's best striker, but should have enough to defeat Venezuela.

10 p.m., Mexico vs. Jamaica, Fox Sports 1: Next to Argentina vs. Chile, this should be one of the better games in all of the group stages of the Centenario. Jamaica is arguably the second-best team in CONCACAF right now, just behind "El Tri." Mexico is coming off an impressive 3-1 win over Uruguay.

Friday

3 p.m., France vs. Romania, ESPN: The Euros kick off with host country France hosting Romania.

7 p.m., Chile vs. Bolivia, Fox: Should Chile not win its first game, it must throw players forward to get three points in this game, which should make for some entertainment.

9:30 p.m., Argentina vs. Panama, Fox: The same is true of Argentina in this one.

Saturday

3 p.m.: England vs. Russia, ESPN: This may be England's best chance in ages to at least play for a title. It has all the pieces to do so. It just needs the confidence. That starts here against Russia.

7 p.m., U.S. vs. Paraguay, Fox Sports 1: The U.S. should go for all three points in this game regardless of what happens against Costa Rica because it needs the confidence.

9 p.m.: Colombia vs. Costa Rica, Fox Sports 2: Colombia should be on cruise control in this game while Costa Rica may be fighting to secure a spot in the knockout stages.

Sunday

9 a.m., Turkey vs. Croatia, ESPN: Croatia are darkhorses to win the Euros because of roster that includes Luka Modric, Ivan Strinic, Ivan Perisic, Mario Mandzukic and Ivan Rakitic, to name a few.

3 p.m., Germany vs. Ukraine, ESPN: Germany should be considered the favorite to win the Euros because it is the regining World Cup champs.

8:30 p.m., Brazil vs. Peru, Fox Sports 1: Dunga's reign as Brazil's manager could end with this game if his team doesn't advance to the Centenario's knockout stages.
