Argentina v Uruguay in Montevideo (WCQ Americas; CONSUR A)
Croatia v Lithuania in Vilnius (WCQ Europe R3; ENC 2A)
The Asia Five Nations/World Cup Qualifying fixtures continue this weekend. Japan faces Hong Kong away whilst Korea travels to the Middle East to play United Arab Emirates. This will be Korea’s first game in the competition for 2013, Japan and Hong Kong already registering wins last weekend.
Another World Cup Qualifying series gets underway this weekend as well. Although Argentina has already qualified there is a repechage position up for grans for the side that comes second. That side will play the loser of the USA-Canada series. And that side goes to the World Cup finals in 2015. So there is plenty to play for between Chile, Uruguay and Brazil.
Finally Croatia plays Lithuania in one of the final European Nations Cup matches for the 2012-13 season. The result has no bearing on the fact that the Netherlands has won the ENC 2A section.
