Euro 2008: 73 days to go...

Tonight's a big night if you're an international side preparing to do battle in this summer's Euro 2008 Finals. There's just 73 days to go until things begin in earnest in Austria and Switzerland, so tonight's friendlies will be a good chance for players to cement their place in the squad of their choice. Let's see who's playing who this evening...

(Euro 2008 competitors shown in capitals, times shown in GMT)

Denmark v CZECH REPUBLIC (7.15 pm)
Belarus v TURKEY (6.00 pm)
Scotland v CROATIA (8.00 pm)
POLAND v United States (7.30 pm)
FRANCE v England (8.00 pm)
SPAIN v ITALY (9.00 pm)
ROMANIA v RUSSIA (6.30 pm)
SWEDEN v Brazil (7.45 pm)

A nice easy one for Sweden at the end there...

Some interesting ties tonight, especially bearing in mind that infamous 'Group of Death' which features France, Italy, the Netherlands and Romania. Italy obviously think that they need to test their metal against a strong team and have plumped for Spain, France similarly have gone for England as their opponents tonight and Romania have arranged a test against Russia, but the Netherlands feel that Austria will be plenty tough enough in what can only be described as a 'gentle warm-up'. Perhaps the local school teams in Amsterdam were unavailable at short notice...
