USA v New Zealand: Women's Football - Olympics: Day -2 Photo by Pedro Vilela/Getty Images

Lots of games to keep an eye on tonight, here’s what I’ll be watching:

  • USWNT vs. France, 4:00 p.m., NBCSN: The second game of the Olympics should be a much tougher test for the U.S. against the up and coming French.
  • Cruz Azul vs. Xolos, 6:00 p.m., Univision Deportes: Atlanta United’s Hector Villalba made the trip with Tijuana to Mexico City for tonight’s match against Cruz Azul, so you would expect he is at least in the 18.
  • Colorado vs. Vancouver, 9:00 p.m., MLS Live: I’ll be keeping an eye on all of tonight’s MLS matches, but this one is the most intriguing. Vancouver is playing their third straight game on the road and desperately need points to secure their playoff positioning with Portland on the heels. Colorado will be trying to bounce back from their worst loss of the season, a 5-1 drubbing at NYCFC.

I’ll miss the International Champions Cup match at Wembley between Liverpool and Barcelona, that one kicks off at noon on ESPN.

Let us know what you’ll be watching in the comments with your thoughts and predictions.
