Malta v. Denmark
Friday, September 6th
7:00PM BST/2:00PM EST

It's win or go home time for Denmark, as nothing less than nine points in their final four matches seem likely to be good enough if they hope to leapfrog the surprising Bulgarians for second in Group B. And with one of those remaining four games against leaders Italy, there's no room to slip up against minnows Malta.

Bosnia and Herzegovina v. Slovakia
Friday, September 6th
7:15PM BST/2:15PM EST

Fit again—and to the surprise of many still a Liverpool player—Martin Skrtel will wear the armband for Slovakia against surprise Group G leaders Bosnia and Herzegovina as they attempt to narrow the gap on second place Greece. The names involved may not seem much of a draw, but given the way the group has shaken out makes for a surprisingly appealing match.

England v. Moldova
Friday, September 6th
8:00PM BST/3:00PM EST

For many, the day's headliner will be England hosting Moldova—though that status has very little to do with Moldova. Currently second in Group H, England need a win before Tuesday's much more difficult match against Ukraine. Steven Gerrard will captain, with Raheem Sterling on the bench. Daniel Sturridge and Glen Johnson are out injured.
