If you’re a soccer fan in the United States, you have a mammoth 29 live World Cup qualifying matches to choose from today, many of which have massive implications on what countries will be playing in the World Cup next summer.
First, if you want to watch Egypt, managed by Bob Bradley, take on Ghana today in the first leg of their World Cup qualifier, the match is being shown live on beIN SPORT. But if you don’t have access to beIN SPORT, there’s a new service called DishWorld (reviewed here) where you watch the network live via a desktop, Roku or smartphone for just $10/month.
If you’re at work, you can watch it from your desktop. Setup is a breeze.
Egypt are currently undefeated in World Cup qualifying, but face one of the toughest sides in Africa to get past. Will Bob Bradley get revenge for Ghana beating his US team in the 2010 World Cup, or will Ghana be victorious?
Second, tonight’s game between the US Men’s National Team and Panama is also only on beIN SPORT, so you can watch it live tonight with your subscription to DishWorld if you don’t have beIN SPORT on your cable or satellite system.
Third, there are so many other key matches today including England versus Poland, where a win for The Three Lions will guarantee them passage to World Cup 2014, as well as Costa Rica against Mexico where El Tri will be fighting for a win to try to qualify from the CONCACAF qualifying group.
