The League of Nations came to give us some life in these long international breaks where the leagues put the brakes on in pursuit of national team football. With an official competition that holds high-level matches, everything gets better. Tonight, Spain and Germany will focus the day's attention on a duel between European and World champions who collided at the top ten years ago. France, the current champion, and Croatia, silver in Russia, also play against Portugal, which defends the European throne.
On the other side of the Atlantic, the night is more than loaded. Brazil visits Uruguay and Argentina will 'go up' to Peru. In addition, Paraguay and Bolivia also play their place in the World Cup. If you prefer something in the middle of the afternoon, the U21 in their last test against Israel is their thing. The very young footballers of Luis de la Fuente play it before the Euro Cup in March.
Today's Games, November 17
Spain-Germany (20:45 – La1)
Luis Enrique's Red is playing a hole in the final four of the League of Nations. After failing on the first date, which Portugal took, Spain wants to fight to sign up for this new 'inter-tournament' competition. To get there, you need to win over Germany, not an easy task. Those of Joachim Löw, also in reconstruction, need only a draw to enter. All or nothing match that can be seen on La 1 de TVE, that can be tuned in for free through DTT.
U21: Spain-Israel (18:45, Four)
Luis de la Fuente's La Rojita finishes the qualifying phase against Israel. The Under-21 European Championship will be played in March, out of date and in the middle of the season, due to the coronavirus. Thus, in such an unusual season, several players will take advantage of this final exam in November to earn a place on the final list. You can follow this game in four, which can be tune in for free through DTT.
Croatia-Portugal (20:45, UEFA TV)
The runner-up in the world against the European champion. If that is not enough incentive, there is Cristiano Ronaldo and also Diogo Jota, the new Liverpool signing who shone at Wolves and is taking the leap to the next level. Portugal plays with a net and without haste, Croatia needs the points to get out of third place in the group. A match of the highest level that can be followed through UEFA TV, the UEFA application that can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play which, after registering, allows you to follow the entire day of the Nations League.
Peru-Argentina (01:30 – Movistar Champions League)
The Argentine team will go up to the National Stadium in Lima to face a Peruvian team in need of points after just one draw in their first three games. Messi will have to lead his team in a not easy match for an Argentina that has better records than feelings. Two points behind Brazil, who play Uruguay, it seems a favorable appointment to add and tighten those of Neymar, who stayed out this time. This game can be enjoyed in the Movistar Champions League, a channel that can be hired through this telephone company and its television offer.
