First on the schedule is the clash between Israel and Portugal, with Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo looking to fire his country up the table in Group F of the Europe standings.
Another team hoping to secure a victory on the road is England, and although Roy Hodgson’s team is struggling to find defenders, the Three Lions should have little problems beating a San Marino side which sits last in Group H – losing all their games and have a 0-16 goal scoring record.
Lots of attention will also be on World champion Spain who will take on Finland in a home tie in Group I. France, which sit behind the group leaders on seven points as well, face third place Georgia in the group’s other game on the night.
Manchester United forward Robin van Persie will try to end his goal scoring doubt when he suits up for the Netherlands against Estonia.
In South America World Cup qualifiers, Uruguay and Colombia will be looking to keep the pressure on standing leaders Argentina who will play Venezuela in the later game.
United State, Mexico and Jamaica are all done for action in the CONCACAF final round.
