The top regional winners + 2014 World Cup hosts Brazil + Euro runner's up Italy = 8 fun teams in the warm-up for the World Cup next year (which is now officially less than 365 days away).

Anyone else watching these games?

I for one enjoyed the Italy v Mexico game... and hope the upcoming Spain v Uruguay game lives up to the hype.

Mexico Vs. Brazil up next, Mexico has very little chances, it would take a small miracle to win Vs. Brazil in their home turf, specially how badly Mexico has been playing lately

I predict a 3-1 Brazil win

Yeah, it's a sad story for Mexico right now - I'm sure they were hoping that the Confederations Cup would turn their fortunes around from their poor WCQ showing lately, but it's a tough matchup for them. I don't see Mexico escaping this game with a point. In the other match today (JPN vs ITA) I'm actually thinking Japan can pull off an upset. Either way, I'm looking forward to the games!

Is anyone enjoying watching teams beat up on Tahiti? Maybe FIFA should reconsider who qualifies for the Confederations Cup. I'm all for letting the little guy get a chance on the big stage, but these Tahiti games are no fun.

Well they are fun for the other team, like playing vs an amateur team

10-0 is a huge blowout...

Now Nigeria Vs. Uruguay is going to be interesting

Yesterday I enjoyed how Japan scared the hell out of Italy, they were winning 2-0 at one time, they also gave a free penalty kick to Italy

In about the 65th minute of the Nigeria Uruguay match the international audio feed was audible while the ESPN crew continued on.
