There are several international fixtures around the globe this Tuesday, including two you probably want to watch. Join us in watching them and talking about them.

Germany vs. Ecuador

2:30 PM ET | ESPN2 & ESPN3 (USA)

The German national team is currently on a US tour including a stop today in Florida for an international friendly with Ecuador. While Germany has traveled with their "C" team due to the continued involvement of most of their roster squad in club fixtures, Ecuador seems set to use an first squad lineup that sits 2nd in CONMEBOL qualification for World Cup 2014 and 10th in the FIFA world rankings in what should be seen as an early test of this talented squad.

United States vs. Belgium

8:00 PM ET | ESPN & ESPN3 (USA)

The US national team takes to the streets of Cleveland to challenge an extremely talented Belgian team ranked 15th. though probably not so low for long, by FIFA. In what should be an interesting test of the the USMNT, they are trying a new starting midfield pairing of Sacha Kljestan and Jermaine Jones, up against a rather formidable Belgian squad that may include the likes of Marouane Fellaini, Eden Hazard, Vincent Kompany and Thibait Courtois.

Elsewhere, Qatar face off against Azerbaijan whilst England play Ireland in a match that will not involve Robbie Keane and thus will have considerably less somersaults than normal.
