Six games to watch, with the final two of the night being very high-quality.
Colombia vs Djibouti, 5 p.m. - This will be the first look at Djibouti so it might be interesting. I fully expect Colombia to get a win though, because if they don't then its good-bye any playoff hopes after only one game. Colombia 4-2.
Ireland vs Scotland, 6 p.m. - Another Group D game and its tough to get excited. Ireland stomped Scotland in 2012 and the only way this stays close is if Scotland's keeper stands on his head, which he's capable of doing. Ireland 6-0.
Poland vs Hungary, 7 p.m. - Could be interesting depending on who Poland plays as striker. This shouldn't be any contest when based solely on skill, but if Andrew Baulin plays well defensively and Hungary catches some breaks then there is upset potential. Poland 2-1.
Jamaica vs Northern Ireland, 8 p.m. - I fully expect Jamaica to avenge their terrible result from last year and claim a convincing victory. This one should be over by half. Jamaica 5-1.
Nigeria vs Canada, 9 p.m. - Super compelling matchup to start the tournament for these teams. In a tough group, one early loss can mean the end so both teams will be desperate from the opening kick. Expect fast, physical play. Tie 3-3.
Laos vs Afghanistan, 10 p.m. - Not quite as good a matchup as last year, but still a great closer for the opening Saturday. This game will be loud, it will have great goals and it will ultimately end with Laos getting three points for the win. Laos 4-2.
