El Tri were held to a draw by Wales in Pasadena, California, and have just a few chances left to get their tactics in order. One more friendly against Denmark will follow before their World Cup opener against defending champions Germany on June 17.

Here is a look at Saturday’s friendly:

Time: 2 a.m. BST (Sunday)/9 p.m. ET

Venue: Estadio Azteca, Mexico City

TV Info/Live Stream: BBC Scotland, Fox Sports 1


El Tri Need Attacking Boost

Mexico weren’t bad in their scoreless draw against Wales, but they certainly weren’t good, either. Against a Welsh team that didn’t have the threat of Gareth Bale in attack, the Mexicans were able to attack relentlessly and for the full 90 minutes.

That all those attacks didn’t lead to a single goal is worrying, to say the least:

Fortunately, this was just a friendly, and as the team spends more time together in preparation for the World Cup, they should find some much-needed chemistry.

Home-field advantage should come in handy, and perhaps a single good result against the Scots is all El Tri need.

The Azteca is expected to be as loud as it can get on Saturday, per football writer Tom Marshall:

An attack led by the talented Hirving Lozano, with Javier Hernandez and Carlos Vela also in the mix, should be able to score against the Scots in such circumstances.


Sloppy Scotland and a Lack of Focus

Scotland can be forgiven for travelling to South America with their focus at less than 100 per cent. For the fifth straight edition of the World Cup, the team failed to qualify, and the players with the squad are likely just counting down the days until they can start their summer break.

It showed against Peru, where the side came undone due to a couple of silly mental errors. Here is a look at the goals from that 2-0 loss―both of which should have been avoided:

On paper, Mexico’s attack is superior to that of Peru, and El Tri will punish those kinds of mistakes just as severely at home. If the Scots want to avoid an embarrassment―and give their coefficient a boost, which could come in handy for the next qualifying draw―they have to find their focus and execute much better.


Prediction: Mexico 3-0 Scotland

It remains to be seen if Gareth Southgate will take the opportunity to experiment against Nigeria, though it is more likely that he will begin to lay the groundwork for his starting XI in Russia.

Phil Jones, a defender Southgate is understood to rate highly, could be given the day off as his partner is due to give birth, while Nick Pope has expressed his hope that he will be given a chance to shine.

Match Preview

England qualified for the World Cup with ease – sailing through a group also featuring Scotland, Slovakia and Slovenia unbeaten – and, as such, this encounter with Nigeria is an intriguing one.

The Super Eagles have strength in depth, and a core comprising a number of Premier League players, and they will be no pushovers.

They, too, topped their group, beating out Zambia, Cameroon and Algeria, who drew with England at the 2010 tournament, to punch their ticket to Russia.

Austria vs Germany Live

Austria vs. Germany: Time, Live Stream and TV Schedule

Austria welcome world champions Germany to the Worthersee Stadion in Klagenfurt on Saturday as both teams continue their preparations for the FIFA 2018 World Cup.

Germany will head to Russia as one of the favourites to lift the trophy, and manager Joachim Low has a star-studded squad of players available to him.

Austria missed out on qualifying for the World Cup after a poor campaign. The team finished in fourth place behind Serbia, Republic of Ireland and Wales with just four wins from 10 matches.

Here’s a look at how you can watch the match.

Date: Saturday, June 2

Time: 5 p.m. BST/12 p.m. ET

TV Info: BT Sport 2 (UK), ESPN 3 (U.S.)

Live Stream: BT Sport Live (UK)

Neuer on the comeback trail

Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer missed almost the entire season after breaking a foot in September 2017, but he is set to make his long-awaited return to action against Austria.

Goalkeeping coach Andreas Kopke has already confirmed the Bayern Munich goalkeeper will feature in the match.

Germany showed how impressive he’s looked in training:

Germany team manager Oliver Bierhoff has said that Neuer will be the team’s first-choice stopper at the World Cup, despite his lengthy lay-off, per BBC Sport.

Neuer is widely regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in the world, and his return to fitness will be a big boost to Germany. The Bayern star is also the Germany captain, and his leadership will be needed in Russia.

Marko Arnautovic was reportedly scouted by Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho on Wednesday as Austria beat World Cup hosts Russia 1-0.

The Red Devils boss took in the action as he is interested in signing the West Ham United forward, according to James Ducker at the Telegraph.

Arnautovic said it was a “great honour” to have Mourinho watching the team, per Kurier (h/t Metro).

Mourinho will have watched Arnautovic set up Alessandro Schopf for Austria’s winner, and another impressive performance against Germany may strengthen Mourinho’s interest.

South Africa vs England Live Rugby

Siya Kolisi to make history by becoming South Africa’s first black captain

Flanker to captain Springboks in three Tests against England
Siya is a good leader,’ says South Africa coach Rassie Erasmus

Siya Kolisi will become South Africa’s first black captain after being handed the role for the Test series against England next month.

The 26-year-old flanker was the vice-captain to Eben Etzebeth last year and temporarily took over when the second-row was off the field but has been awarded the role on a full-time basis for the three-Test series.

Chiliboy Ralepelle was the captain of a South Africa team against a World XV in 2006 but, with Etzebeth and Warren Whiteley injured, Kolisi will be the first black player to captain the Springboks in a Test in their 127-year history.

The appointment comes two days after Rassie Erasmus named a squad which includes five overseas-based players – Sale’s Faf de Klerk, Willie le Roux of Wasps as well as Duane Vermeulen, Bismarck du Plessis and Francois Steyn.

Erasmus has wasted little time in making changes since taking over from Allister Coetzee but the former Munster director of rugby denied Kolisi, who captains the Stormers, has been appointed out of tokenism.

South Africa’s stated aim is for 50% of the World Cup squad next year to be black players as part of transformation goals but Erasmus said: “I know Siya is a good leader and I am excited about what he can offer us. I have always understood the transformation issues and that they are part of the way we are heading and I have bought into that.

“We are trying to fix all the wrong things that were done in the past. The recent things that happened did not have a bearing on this decision because my contract was signed long before. The players we have in this squad deserve to be here and I am not trying to fabricate things.”

Kolisi will not be considered for selection against Wales in Washington DC on Saturday so Pieter-Steph du Toit has been named as the captain for that match.

Australia vs Ireland Rugby

Australia v Ireland: Wallabies name five uncapped players in 32-man squad

Australia coach Michael Cheika has named five uncapped players in a 32-man squad for the three-Test series against Grand-Slam winning Ireland in June.

Brumbies duo Folau Fainga’a and Tom Banks, Rebels full-back Jack Maddocks and Reds forwards Brandon Paenga-Amosa and Caleb Timu are all included.

Melbourne-born loose forward Pete Samu could be a late addition if released from his New Zealand Rugby contract.

“At this point we can’t select him but there is a spot for him,” Cheika said.

Samu, 26, plays for Super Rugby champions Canterbury Crusaders.

“At this point, it’s in others’ hands,” Cheika added. “I’m not really involved in that part of it but I’m hoping there will be some more clarity on that on Thursday.”

In Samu’s absence, Timu is in line for a maiden Test appearance, slotting into a back row alongside David Pocock and captain Michael Hooper.

With former captain Stephen Moore retired and Tatafu Polota-Nau rested, the Wallabies will field a rookie hooker, with Paenga-Amosa and Fainga’a seeking Test debuts behind the twice-capped Jordan Uelese.

Blindside flanker Ned Hanigan has been named but will miss at least the first Test as he recovers from a knee injury.

Cheika was cagey about his favoured back-row combination and which position veteran ball-poacher Pocock will play.

The Australia coach added: “Whether he wears seven, six or eight, he will have his standard floating role so he can do exactly what he does best – he’s always straight into his strong points.”

Two uncapped players in Ireland squad
Ireland series will measure Wallaby progress – Cheika

Pocock’s speedy Brumbies team-mate Banks has a chance to make his Test debut in the back three, along with Maddocks.

With Super Rugby scheduled this weekend, the Wallabies will have less than a week to prepare for the 9 June opener in Brisbane against the Six Nations champions, who are riding a 12-match winning streak and bidding for their first Test and series victory in Australia since 1979.

The Canberra-based Brumbies have refused a request from Cheika and Rugby Australia to rest three of their Wallabies – Pocock, and props Allan Alaalatoa and Scott Sio – from Sunday’s home match against the Sunwolves.

“Common sense will tell you that a six-day preparation for a Test match is not ideal,” Cheika said. “I’m hoping we can work it out together.”

Meanwhile, Rebels scrum-half Will Genia has been named in the squad despite missing a month of Super Rugby with a knee injury.
Australia squad

Forwards: Allan Alaalatoa, Rory Arnold, Adam Coleman, Folau Fainga’a, Ned Hanigan, Michael Hooper, Sekope Kepu, Brandon Paenga-Amosa, David Pocock, Tom Robertson, Rob Simmons, Scott Sio, Izack Rodda, Caleb Timu, Lukhan Tui, Taniela Tupou, Jordan Uelese.

Backs: Tom Banks, Kurtley Beale, Israel Folau, Bernard Foley, Will Genia, Dane Haylett-Petty, Reece Hodge, Samu Kerevi, Marika Koroibete, Tevita Kuridrani, Jack Maddocks, Sefanaia Naivalu, Nick Phipps, Joe Powell, Curtis Rona.

New Zealand vs France

Rugby: France name squad to tour New Zealand

France will bring plenty of experience in their squad of 32 to take on the All Blacks in three tests next month.

Halfback Morgan Parra, lock Yoann Maestri, outside back Maxime Medard and centre Wesley Fofana all return to offer a large dose of veteran leadership.

Guant Timaru-born prop Uini Atonio is also included, along with notorious midfielder Mathieu Bastareaud.

All Blacks teammates wage war of words
Whitelock named captain for France series

The first part of the French squad leave for New Zealand next week, but players involved in the Top 14 final won’t depart until the week of the first test on June 9.

Those players will play no part in the series-opener in Auckland.

At best, the national team will only have two players involved in that club final. The worst-case scenario would see Montpellier and Racing 92 advance, eliminating six players from for selection at Eden Park.

Coach Jacques Brunel said the tour provided the ideal chance to both take stock and challenge their players, with the Rugby World Cup in Japan on the horizon.

“This tour to NZ is the ultimate opportunity for us to make an effective review of our new players and integrate them into our squad a year out from the start of the World Cup,” Brunel said in a statement.

A tour skipper has yet to be named, although reports suggest it will be blockbusting midfield back Bastareaud, which would complete a remarkable redemption story.

In 2009, Bastareaud attracted international headlines when he falsified an account of an assault when in NZ. He later admitted his injuries were a result of a drunken fall.

After Auckland, the series shifts to Wellington for the second test on June 16, followed by Dunedin on June 23.

France squad to tour New Zealand

Forwards: Uini Atonio (La Rochelle), Cyril Baille (Toulouse), Eddy Ben Arous (Racing 92), Cedate Gomes Sa (Racing 92), Dany Priso (La Rochelle), Rabah Slimani (Clermont), Camille Chat (Racing 92), Pierre Bougarit (La Rochelle), Adrien Pélissié (Bordeaux-Bègles), Paul Gabrillagues (Stade Français), Felix Lambey (Lyon), Yoann Maestri (Toulouse), Bernard Le Roux (Racing 92), Mathieu Babillot (Castres), Kelian Galletier (Montpellier), Kevin Gourdon (La Rochelle), Alexandre Lapandry (Clermont), Fabien Sanconnie (Brive).

Halves: Morgan Parra (Clermont), Baptiste Serin (Bordeaux-Bègles), Anthony Belleau (Toulon), Jules Plisson (Stade Français).

Outside Backs: Mathieu Bastareaud (Toulon), Geoffrey Doumayrou (La Rochelle), Gael Fickou (Toulouse), Wesley Fofana (Clermont), Remi Lamerat (Clermont), Remy Grosso (Clermont), Teddy Thomas (Racing 92), Hugo Bonneval (Toulon), Benjamin Fall (Montpellier), Maxime Médard (Toulouse).


Japan vs Italy Rugby

Italy captain Sergio Parisse to sit out summer tour to Japan

Italy captain Sergio Parisse has been rested for next month’s tour of Japan, coach Conor O’Shea confirmed on Wednesday.

Irishman O’Shea named a 31-man squad with Treviso prop Cherif Traore getting a first call-up and centres Michele Campagnaro and Luca Morisi returning.

Parisse, 34, earned the unwanted record of a 100th Test defeat in Italy’s last-gasp 29-27 Six Nations loss to Scotland in March which gave the Azzurri a third consecutive wooden spoon.

“This tour is a great opportunity for the team to continue to progress with a view to the World Cup next year in Japan,” said O’Shea.

“But we also want to put the necessary pressure within the group to turn our good performances into results.”

Italy will challenge the Brave Blossoms, coached by New Zealander Jamie Joseph, on Saturday, June 9 in Oita and Saturday, June 16 in Kobe.

They will also play a warm-up match against Yamaha Jubilo, a Japanese first division club, on June 2 in Nagano.
Italy squad

The two nations have played six times with Italy winning on five occasions and Japan once – their most recent meeting in Tokyo on June 21, 2014.

The Tests will take place one year out from Japan hosting the Rugby World Cup from September 20 to November 2, 2019.

Italy tour squad:

Forwards: Simone Ferrari, Andrea Lovotti, Tiziano Pasquali, Cherif Traore, Federico Zani, Luca Bigi, Leonardo Ghiraldini, Oliviero Fabiani, George Biagi, Marco Fuser, Dean Budd, Federico Ruzza, Alessandro Zanni, Giovanni Licata, Jake Polledri, Sebastiani Negri, Abraham Steyn.

Backs: Marcello Violi, Guglielmo Palazzani, Tito Tebaldi, Tomasso Allan, Carlo Canna, Mattia Bellini, Tomasso Benvenuti, Michele Campagnaro, Luca Morisi, Giulio Bisegni, Tomasso Castello, Jayden Hayward, Matteo Minozzi, Edoardo Padovani

South Africa vs Wales Live

What time does Wales v South Africa kick off and what about the Argentina tour matches

The normal rugby season may have finished but the international battles are only just beginning as Wales start their summer tour this weekend.

First up, it’s Wales v South Africa in the strange surroundings of Washington DC, before Warren Gatland’s men head to Argentina for two Tests against the Pumas.

Here’s all the timings and info you need for the next few weeks.

When does the tour start?

Warren Gatland’s squad face South Africa on Saturday, June 2 in Washington DC.

The squad will then head to South America to come up against Argentina on Saturday, June 9 before facing the Pumas again on Saturday, June 16.

What are the kick-off times?

There’s going to be a few late nights for Welsh rugby fans, particularly this coming weekend for the South Africa match, which kicks off at 10pm UK time.

Both clashes with Argentina kick off at 8.40pm UK time.

Will the games be on TV?

Yes. In a first for Welsh rugby, the matches will be shown live on Channel 4 with S4C showing match highlights of each game the following day.

It is the first time Wales rugby matches have ever been shown on the channel, which is not known for its rugby coverage.

Channel Four’s coverage starts at 9.20pm on Saturday night, with Sam Warburton, Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones, hooker Ken Owens and centre Jonathan Davies all thought to be giving their insights on the tour.

Former England winger and now accomplished broadcaster Ugo Monye is also set to be involved, along with ex-Wales skipper Ryan Jones and Springbok full-back Thinus Delport.

S4C’s highlights show will be on at 8pm on Sunday night, with coverage produced by the BBC Wales sports team.

The clash against the Springboks will be held on neutral ground at the Robert F Kennedy (RFK) Stadium in Washington DC, around two miles from the U.S. Capitol building.

After travelling to South America, the first Test against Argentina will be staged at the Estadio San Juan Del Bicentenario, in San Juan – 700 miles from Argentina’s capital city, Buenos Aires.

The last Test of the tour will be at the Estadio Brigadier Lopez, in Santa Fe – which is around 600 miles from San Juan.

Who’s in the squad?

Dragons lock Cory Hill and Cardiff Blues flanker Ellis Jenkins as co-captains for the tour, with the squad including just two Lions tourists from last summer .

Dragons-bound Ross Moriarty and Ospreys-bound George North left the Lions tour early with back and hamstring injuries respectively and the fact they’ve both missed chunks of this season with medical issues sees them make the trip.

But the likes of skipper Alun Wyn Jones, Taulupe Faletau, Liam Williams and Leigh Halfpenny are among those being rested, while Cardiff Blues scrum-half Tomos William is the sole uncapped player in the squad.

Worcester Warriors’ Josh Adams, Bath Rugby’s Luke Charteris and Exeter Chiefs’ Tomas Francis were initially named in the squad, but were then replaced by Dragons duo Ashton Hewitt and Aaron Wainwright and Ospreys prop Rhodri Jones after it emerged that the England-based trio would not be released by Premiership Rugby for the South Africa fixture, which falls outside of the June Test window.

Hewitt, however, has since withdrawn with injury, while the injured Aaron Shingler has been replaced by Josh Turnbull

Cardiff Blues’ Josh Navidi was also initially in the squad bit was later ruled out after dislocating his shoulder in the Challenge Cup final.

Wales squad: Forwards: Rob Evans (Scarlets); Wyn Jones (Scarlets); Nicky Smith (Ospreys); Elliot Dee (Dragons); Ryan Elias (Scarlets); Rhodri Jones (Ospreys); Samson Lee (Scarlets); Dillon Lewis (Cardiff Blues); Adam Beard (Ospreys); Bradley Davies (Ospreys); Seb Davies (Cardiff Blues); Cory Hill (Dragons, co-captain);James Davies (Scarlets); Ellis Jenkins (Cardiff Blues, co-captain); Ross Moriarty (Gloucester); Aaron Wainwright (Dragons); Josh Turnbull (Blues)

Backs: Aled Davies (Scarlets); Gareth Davies (Scarlets); Tomos Williams (Cardiff Blues); Gareth Anscombe (Cardiff Blues); Rhys Patchell (Scarlets); Hadleigh Parkes (Scarlets); Owen Watkin (Ospreys); Scott Williams (Scarlets); Hallam Amos (Dragons); Steff Evans (Scarlets); (Dragons); George North (Northampton Saints); Tom Prydie (Scarlets).
