William Hill TV - international previews

We've got a feast of top quality international football games for you on Wednesday night featuring four World Cup winners, the European champions and the best of the action from the CONCACAF.

You've got a choice of two games at 17:00 - Azerbaijan v Germany and the Faroe Islands v France

The Germans are top of their qualifying group, with five wins and a draw from their six games, Russia are pushing them all the way though and currently sit just a point behind Joachim Löw's team.

Germany are certainties to beat the 33/1 Azeri's and at odds of 1/10 it actually offers fairly decent value (the draw is 7/1), but to get more for your money why not try one of our other markets on offer - Germany/Germany on the double result (a winner in four out of five of Germany's victories) is priced at 2/5, and a big score of 5-0 available at 11/1.

In action at the same time as Germany are France, who have a lot of work to do if they're to make it to South Africa next year.

Raymond Domenech's team are eight points behind Serbia in 2nd place so a win against the Faroe Islands is a must if they're to catch the runaway leaders, they're hefty odds-on shots at 1/40 to claim the three points but you're best getting involved in the correct score market to get a good return for your money - a 4-0 win for Les Bleus is a much more attractive looking price at 11/2.

The Faroes are a massive 66/1 to cause an almighty shock and win the match, the draw is 12/1.

Estonia v Brazil

We break away from the qualifiers at 18:15 to bring you this friendly clash from Tallinn.

Brazil are in pole position to qualify for next year's World Cup but that won't mean that they'll take it easy against Estonia.

With the likes of Kaká, Robinho and Luís Fabiano about you can be sure of goals, the Brazilians are 1/6 to win the game and 6/1 to win 3-0. The draw is an 11/2 chance while the hosts can be backed at a whopping 18/1. In the double result market Brazil/Brazil at 8/15 looks tempting.

Switzerland v Italy

Another international friendly here with Ottmar Hitzfeld's Swiss side entertaining Italy.

It looks to be a close game in the betting with Switzerland priced at 23/10, the draw at 21/10 and the Italians are a cracking price at 13/10 - a close game here is suggested by odds of 8/1 on a 2-1 success for Italy.

It promises to be a special night for one person regardless of the outcome, Italy's World Cup winning captain Fabio Cannavaro is set to break Paolo Maldini's record of 126 international caps.

The Azzurri are top of their qualifying group, typically grinding out results rather than thrashing teams, and look set to defend their World Cup title in South Africa next year.

Macedonia v Spain

European champions Spain may have lost their long unbeaten run recently but they should still have enough quality in them to see off Macedonia in the final friendly action of the night on William Hill TV.

Unfortunately for the Spaniards though their minds won't be on this friendly clash as the squad is still coming to terms with the tragic death of Espanyol captain Daniel Jarque, the centre back passed away at just 26 years old from a heart attack suffered at the weekend.

If the classy Spanish team are at their best they will make a mockery of their 4/11 price, particularly if David Villa (3/1 to open the scoring) and Fernando Torres (7/2) can keep up their outstanding form that saw them go on that incredible run of 35 games undefeated.

The Macedonians are 17/2 to claim a surprise win and the draw is a 10/3 shot.

We go back to the competitive stuff at 21:00 with an exciting looking game between Mexico and USA.

Revenge will be on the cards for the Americans as they suffered an almighty beating against Mexico in the recent CONCACAF Gold Cup final - losing 5-0 in their own back yard.

Bob Bradley's team are 11/4 to win this qualifier at the Azteca, the draw is an 11/5 chance and the hosts Mexico are 5/6 jollies to claim the points and kick-start their campaign.

Off to the Caribbean for the penultimate game of the night with Trinidad & Tobago taking on El Salvador in the CONCACAF qualifying section.

Russell Latapy's team are really struggling in the group - only picking up two points from their first five games, a win here is a must if they're to have any chance of making it to South Africa next year, the hosts are 4/5 to get the three points, with the draw a 9/4 shot and El Salvador priced at 14/5.

We finish proceedings in Honduras, where Costa Rica are the visitors.

The hosts are well positioned to reach only their 2nd ever World Cup finals and can really enhance their chances by beating Costa Rica, it won't be easy though as Rodrigo Kenton's team currently top the group.

Los Catrachos are 23/20 to win the match, the draw is 11/5 while Costa Rica - who've won their last three group games - are a good price at 15/8.

Make sure you join us from 17:00 to bet in-play on a wide range of markets.
