The Toulon Tournament starts today, with England taking on China in the opening match.

Free Sports TV has the rights to the Tournament in the UK, so check out their homepage to find out information about where to see the match on TV. The England v China match will start at 13.55 BST.

If you’re not in the UK, beIN Sports Connect has the match in much of the Middle East. It will also be streamed on beIN Sports Connect in the United States. In the Caribbean and parts of Latin America (including Mexico) it will be shown on ESPN Play Norte or ESPN Play Sur. Check Liversoccertv for other listings. I know I usually post information about how to stream or watch matches from New Zealand and Australia, but there are no listings for them that I found.

Anyway, if you have a some time to kill before the Championship play-off final and the Champions League, check out the England U21s.

On to the links.
