SuperSport’s Seven-Day International Football Bonanza On DStv

With league action taking a hiatus for the internationals break, football continues on the World of Champions with over 30 key fixtures which include Afcon 2017 and 2018 World Cup qualifiers and other high profile friendlies.

Over the next seven days, the Afcon qualification campaign will start to take shape with a host of nations in prime position to secure their spots at the Gabon showpiece next year.

SuperSport’s pick of match day three and four action includes the titanic battle between Nigeria and Egypt; South Africa’s do-or-die encounter with Cameroon; Kenya’s run-in with Guinea-Bissau; Zambia’s tussle with Congo for Group E’s top spot; Swaziland’s wrestle with Zimbabwe to lead Group L and Ghana’s quest for early finals qualification at Mozambique’s expense.

In South America, the road to Russia 2018 is surprisingly being led by unfancied Ecuador with the number one ranked team on the continent, Argentina, languishing in sixth, a position which has them missing out on qualification. Five-time world champions Brazil have also had an indifferent start to the qualification campaign and lie in third spot, two points off sixth, a spot which would also see them missing out on the finals. A World Cup without Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr? Now that’s unfathomable.

Match day five and six of the CONMEBOL fixtures are all live on SuperSport.

Italy’s third meeting with Spain since that fateful day almost four years ago in Kiev headlines the high profile friendlies being broadcast on SuperSport. Since the 4-0 humbling at the Euro 2012 final, the Azzuri have acquitted themselves well against La Furia Roja, playing out a nil-all draw and losing 1-0.

Other friendlies include Germany’s 30th meeting with England, as well as Netherlands hosting France.
