BELGIUM V COLOMBIA
Fifa ranking: Belgium 5th and Colombia 4th
Useful facts: In this interesting international friendly, Belgium take on Colombia in what could be an exciting clash in Brussels. Belgium are very strong at home and Colombia could be slight underdogs in this encounter.
Calvin Marlin: Belgium should win at home.
ITALY V GERMANY
Fifa ranking: Italy 8th and Germany 2nd
Useful facts: In more international friendly action, Euro 2012 finalists, Italy, welcome the visit of Germany to Giuseppe Meazza Stadium. The Germans are in imperious form and have won four of their last five matches played.
Calvin Marlin: Germany win.
PORTUGAL V SWEDEN
Fifa ranking: Portugal 14th and Sweden 25th
Useful facts: In this World Cup qualifying playoff encounter, Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s Sweden travel to Lisbon to take on Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal. It could prove to be an interesting two-legged tie as it will decide which superstar will get to strut his talents at the 2014 World Cup.
Calvin Marlin: Wow! I’ll give the win to Portugal.
ENGLAND V CHILE
Fifa ranking: England 10th and Chile 12th
Useful facts: In this World Cup friendly, England take on Chile at home. Roy Hodgson’s men have been in good form of late and are buoyed after qualifying for the World Cup in Brazil. Expect an attractive and open encounter at Wembley Stadium.
Calvin Marlin: England to win at Wembley.
SCOTLAND V USA
Fifa ranking: Scotland 35th and USA 13th
Useful facts: Scottish football has been on the decline for a number of years and it’s unclear when the team will qualify for a major tournament again. In an earlier era it would be almost unthinkable for Scotland to be ranked lower than the USA. This means the Tartan Terriers will be slight underdogs at home.
Calvin Marlin: USA win. Scotland aren’t very good.
SWAZILAND V SOUTH AFRICA
Fifa ranking: Swaziland 183rd and South Africa 61st
Useful facts: Minnows Swaziland will feel a great deal of excitement in taking on Gordon Igesund’s Bafana Bafana in this international friendly. Bafana should be firm favourites and ought to win this clash at a canter.
Calvin Marlin: A draw. Ha, ha! You never know with Bafana and their bag of tricks.
