FINAL COUNTDOWN TO BRAZIL 2014 EXCLUSIVELY LIVE ON DStv’s SUPERSPORT
In the next seven days, the final pieces still missing in the 32-piece puzzle that is the 2014 FIFA World Cup will fall into place.
Twenty one nations, including hosts Brazil, have all booked their place in next year’s football extravaganza. Twenty two will battle it out for the 11 spots still up for grabs, to be broadcast exclusively live on SuperSport. The World of Champions will broadcast all 15 of the final play-off matches live.
On the continent, Ghana looks to have snatched one of the spots after blacking out Egypt’s campaign 6-1 in Kumasi in the first leg. The second leg should be all but a formality barring a miracle. The Ivory Coast is in a similar position having swatted aside a lacklustre Senegal 3-1. There’s still everything to play for in the three other fixtures: Nigeria and Burkina Faso hold slender leads against Ethiopia and Algeria respectively while there’s nothing separating Cameroon and Tunisia going into the second leg.

It should be an emotional return for Andres Iniesta, scorer of the winning goal that brought La Furia Roja glory, and 14 other members of the 23-man squad travelling to South Africa, who were all part of the 2010 team. The match is the highlight of the World of Champions’ 10-match international friendly broadcast which will be kicked off by South Africa’s trip to neighbours Swaziland on Friday, live on SS4HD, SS4 and Select (Chanel 229) from (20:15 CAT).
