Football lovers can look forward to more international football action on DStv and GOtv, as the group stage matches of the 2020/21 International Friendlies, UEFA Nations League and UEFA Euro Qualifiers 2020 air live on SuperSport.
Starting from today October 8 through Wednesday, September 14, 2020, SuperSport will provide coverage on no less than 10 international friendlies and no less than 32 UEFA Nations League (UNL) and Euro 2020 matches in the space of seven days.
The International Friendlies are headlined by a British derby between England and Wales. For the ‘Three Lions’, Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin will be hoping to make a major impact on his first call-up to Gareth Southgate’s team, having enjoyed a goal-laden start to the campaign with the Toffees.
Thursday also sees Belgium and New Zealand kick-off at 7:45pm on SuperSport Premier League.
Earlier in the day Russia and Sweden battle it out at 5:30pm on SuperSport Premier League.
