There's not much of a bigger downer following a Super Bowl than a FIFA international break. Soccer fans in the United States will have to withstand two whole days without any live games this midweek. That's OK, though, as the United States Men's National Team will play a World Cup qualifier, and there will also be several international friendlies on TV. Don't forget ESPN3/Watch ESPN, which will again shows multiple matches that won't be on television during the week.
All times listed below are ET
