Where to watch the international football this weekend

by Steve

So, the league programme gets interrupted again by an international break. This weekend sees the first legs of the play-offs to decide the final spots for next year’s World Cup finals. Plus, a fair few meaningless friendlies, including Brazil versus England in Qatar in an exercise to make as much money as possible, and annoy as many players, managers and fans as possible too, by the looks of things.

Here we go with Saturday’s international sport on television for those in the UK…

  • New Zealand vs Bahrain starts at 7am on British Eurosport for all you early risers
  • Wales vs Scotland is at 3pm on Sky Sports 1
  • Russia vs Slovenia is on ESPN from 4pm
  • Brazil vs England kicks off at 5pm on ITV1
  • Northern Ireland vs Serbia is at 5.30pm on Sky Sports 1
  • Republic of Ireland vs France is at 8pm on Sky Sports 1

Plenty of footy then this weekend..fill your boots!
