Live on TV Channels

Following television channels are going to bring the live action of the match from South Africa for their viewers in various parts of the world:

Brazil: Rede Globo, Rede Bandeirantes, SporTV, BandSports, ESPN Brasil; Ivory Coast: SuperSport 3; USA: ESPN, ABC; South Asia (India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan and Maldives): ESPN Star; United Kingdom (England, Ireland, Scotland and Northern Ireland): BBC and ITV; Australia: SBS.

On the back of a goalless draw against Portugal, Ivory Coast now needs 3 points in what would them bring very close to qualify for the round of 16. Captain Didier Drogba would most probably be in their starting line up as the Chelsea striker is getting over from his arm injury.

Brazil, on the other hand, had a winning start in the tournament, but their tepid 2-1 victory over North Korea could not impress their fans. They may have won the match, but their weak points were badly exposed in the course of the match. However, they have quality players like Kaka, Robinho and Fabiano, and any of them can pull the string for Brazil.

Football fans are expecting that the Samba kings would return with their beautiful attacking style of football, while their African opponents would be inspired by Didier Drogba to perform at their best. So, it seems that an exciting affair is coming up next for the fans.
