Tuesday kickaround: Boskovic at Wembley, Fire vs. Wizards, Maryland and Virginia matches, Iraqi soccer movie

*D.C. United's Branko Boskovic and his upstart Montenegro teammates are at Wembley today for a meeting of unbeaten nations in a 2012 European Championship qualifier (3 p.m. ET, Fox Soccer Plus). Other tasty matchups: Scotland-Spain, Netherlands-Sweden, Italy-Serbia and Slovakia-Ireland. I will post the complete TV/online viewing options at noon.

*The MLS playoff race, which typically isn't decided until the final days, will come to an undramatic end tonight if the Kansas City Wizards do not defeat the already eliminated Chicago Fire at Toyota Park (8:30 p.m., Direct Kick).

*The Maryland Terrapins, who have outscored opponents 19-2 during a 6-1-0 run, will visit Lehigh in a nonconference match tonight. Reigning NCAA champion Virginia, which has won five of its past six outings, faces a difficult test against James Madison.

*"Kick Off," an award-winning film revolving around soccer in Iraq, is coming to Filmfest DC. Watch the trailer:

During my time at JMU, I found we knew nothing of difficult tests unless they were of the STD or pregnancy type
