beIN SPORT has acquired the US media rights to the African World Cup qualifiers including the massive two-leg playoff between Egypt, managed by former US coach Bob Bradley, and Ghana.
Under Bradley, Egypt has been on an incredible run but now face a formidable side, Ghana. Having the matches shown live on English-speaking US television is a huge plus for soccer fans in the United States, many of whom will be cheering on Egypt to see if the remarkable story of a country overcoming riots and league shutdowns can make it all the way to Brazil 2014.
Of course, Egypt versus Ghana is just one of many Africa World Cup Qualifiers that will be televised.
