As 2010 nears an end, and the memories of the World Cup in South Africa grow more distant, international teams around the world are gathering together for one final run out this year. Forty-seven friendlies are on the schedule, including the U.S. national teams clash against South Africa (2pm, ESPN2).

Perhaps no other game has a higher profile than Brazil and Argentina, as the two sides meet in Doha, Qatar (12pm, ESPN2). Brazils side is light on players from the failed World Cup campaign, and features the likes of Ronaldinho, Coutinho and Neymar. Theyll go up against Argentine stars suchs as Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria, Gonzalo Higuain and Diego Milito.

Two sets of European rivals will also clash, with England hosts France at Wembley. Fabio Capello is set to go with a very experimental lineup against Les Bleus. World Cup winner Spain travels to Lisbon to face Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal, while Sweden takes on Germany.
