June 11/12: What to watch, where to go

MONDAY, JUNE 11

  • TELEVISION

2012 EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP

France vs. England

ESPN and ESPN Deportes, 8:45 a.m.

Are the French back? They come into Euro 2012 with a 21-game unbeaten streak, and there's no arguing with their talent. England starts off with Wayne Rooney on suspension (and several important figures hurt), but a pragmatic approach might lead to success. Replay: ESPN Deportes, 6 p.m.

Also

Ukraine vs. Sweden, ESPN and ESPN Deportes, 11:30 a.m.

2014 WORLD CUP QUALIFYING

Panama at Honduras

ESPN Deportes, 4 p.m.

One of Saturday's marquee matches to start the semifinal round of CONCACAF qualifying makes it to the tube on a two-day delay.

Also

El Salvador at Costa Rica, ESPN Deportes, 6:30 a.m.

Brazilian Brasileirão

Coritiba at Flamengo, ESPN Deportes, 4:30 a.m.

Corinthians at Gremio, GolTV, 10 a.m.

TUESDAY, JUNE 12

  • TELEVISION

2012 EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP

Russia at Poland

ESPN and ESPN Deportes, 11:30 a.m.

Poland started crisply, then watched it all fall apart, then held on for a draw in their Group A opener against Greece. Russia's another matter, clearly the class of the quartet. Replays: ESPN2, 5 p.m.; ESPN Deportes, 1 a.m.

Also

Greece vs. Czech Republic, ESPN and ESPN Deportes, 8:45 a.m.

2014 WORLD CUP QUALIFYING

Mexico at El Salvador

Telemundo (KVEA/Channel 52), 6:30 p.m.

Mexico cruised in its CONCACAF qualifying opener, with a little more magic from Giovani Dos Santos, although the scoreline (3-1 over Guyana) hardly satisfied. The Salvadorans will put up a fight at home. Replay: 9:30 p.m.

Also

Cuba at Panama, ESPN Deportes, 6 p.m.

2014 WORLD CUP QUALIFYING

United States at Guatemala

Pay-Per-View, 7 p.m.

The Americans did what they needed to do in their qualifying opener Friday night, but impress? Hardly. They'll require more spark to deal with the conditions in Guatemala, where no game is simple. The situation at left back could be key.
