Today’s soccer action will feature the Confederations Cup on ESPN, with Mexico kicking the afternoon off when they face Italy.
Mexico has been in poor form this year, winning only a single match out of seven so far. Good production from star striker Javier Hernandez, who has only scored twice for his national team so far this year, is critical if Mexico have any hope at winning the tournament.
Later in the afternoon, Spain will face Uruguay in a very high-profile Confederations Cup matchup.
Spain will look to continue their 25-match unbeaten streak in competitive matches, with hopes of finally winning the Confederations Cup, the only major competition left that has escaped their grasp. Luis Suarez returns from suspension to face the world champions, a big boost for a Uruguayan side who has struggled immensely through World Cup qualifying so far.
