With an off day at the Women’s World Cup, the other tournaments around the world take center stage, one of which kicks off Friday.
The 2019 African Cup of Nations joins the fray with host Egypt taking on Zimbabwe in Group A action. Look for Mo Salah and Egypt to make a big statement in the opener.
At the UEFA U21 tournament, France and England are heavy favorites, after the two teams played one of the best contests on this tournament season so far Tuesday. Expect both to win.
It is a light schedule at the Copa America, with just one match. Two-time defending champion Chile will look to tiptoe group with another win.
Finally, the Gold Cup will see Jamaica and El Salvador clash to see which team will move to the top of Group C. Both teams have three points, and will be looking to win the group.
