If you pay for Showmax Pro, you’ll be delighted to know you will be able to stream all the 64 games of this year’s World Cup. The games kick off in November, marking the first time the tournament is held at the end of the year. It will also be the first time the games are played in the Middle East.
The games will take place at eight stadiums across five cities in Qatar: Lusall, Al Khor, Al Rayyan, Al Wakrah and Doha.
Showmax Pro streams of the matches will be with English Commentary straight from November 20th to December 18th. Viewers will also get the SuperSport studio presentations, half-time chats, and wraps of the day.
Africa will be represented by the national teams of Ghana, Senegal, Cameroon, Tunisia and Morocco. Ghana’s Black Stars, who were infamously knocked out by Uruguay in the quarter-finals in South Africa in 2010, will be led by captain Andre Ayew, who will be playing in his third World Cup having featured in 2010 and 2014. The Black Stars clinched their spot in Qatar by defeating Nigeria in a play-off in March of this year.
Reigning champions France will return, hoping to retain their title spearheaded by another PSG star in Kylian Mbappe: the 23-year-old netted four goals during their triumph in 2018. England will be hoping to improve on their second-place finish in last year’s UEFA European Football Championship, while eventual winners Italy will feel disappointed after failing to qualify for this year’s World Cup.
Brazil, the most successful team in the tournament’s history, will be closely watched as they hope to go back to the glory days. The number-one ranked nation according to the latest FIFA World rankings released on 31 March will look to add to their five titles led by an array of superstars including PSG’s Neymar Jr, Arsenal’s Gabriel Jesus and Real Madrid’s Vincius Jr, among others.
