Good news: We're down to 17 days until FIFA World Cup 2010 kicks off in South Africa.

Better news: You can watch the USA play the first of three international friendly warm-up matches tonight at 5:30 p.m. on ESPN and Galavision. The U.S. men's team will take on Czech Republic in East Hartford, Conn. in this first match.

Then, on May 29 (noon Mountain time on ESPN2 and Galavision), the U.S. will face Turkey in Philadelphia, Pa., to be followed by a match against Australia on June 5 (6:30 a.m. Mountain time on ESPN2) in South Africa.

The U.S. enters this year's World Cup currently ranked #14 by FIFA; unsurprisingly, Brazil is ranked #1.

As for group C, in which the U.S. has been placed for round one, England is ranked #8, Algeria #31 and Slovenia #23.
