Club football takes a recess on Wednesday November 17 on DStv as Fifa friendlies take centre stage on SuperSport. In the clash of the night, world champions, Spain take on Portugal in a repeat of the last 16 round of the recently concluded World Cup. Spain emerged victorious in that encounter thanks to a 63rd minute David Villa strike, paving the way to world cup glory.

Since their landmark victory against Holland in the World Cup finals, the European Champions have lost and drawn once and won three times. Fernando Torres seem to have found his scoring boots again while Davivd Villa and Fernando Llorente are slowly but surely ascending La Liga’s scoring charts.

Portugal’s form after their World Cup exit has been patchy, to say the least, drawing 4-4 to lowly Cyprus and sustaining a defeat to Norway in the Euro 2012 qualifiers. Victories over Norway and Iceland have, however, got their Euro qualifying campaigner back on track.

Christiano Ronaldo’s sizzling form and Nani’s electrifying pace should be a major worry for the duo of Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique in the Spanish defence.

Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta are finally clicking again post-World Cup and should out-pass the Portuguese all night. The mouth-watering tie is live on DStv on SuperSport 7 and SuperSport Maximo respectively, kicking off at 23:00 CAT.

In an earlier kick-off at 22:00 CAT, England take on France live on SuperSport 3. France has a new man at the helm in Laurent Blanc after their disastrous 2010 World Cup campaigner under Raymond Domench. The 1998 World Cup winner has gone about restoring French pride, righting Domench’s wrongs and rebuilding the national team with an influx of young players.

A win against the Three Lions will get the French nation once again believing in their team and an important step forward in Blanc’s rebuilding process. England are facing a crisis with the lack of young talent coming through the development ranks. Fabio Capello has resorted to calling up ageing strikers like Kevin Davies, who at 33 recently made his international debut against Montenegro. The call up of 28-year-old Jay Bothroyd from Championship outfit Cardiff City is also testament of the crisis Capello finds himself in.

DStv viewers can tune in for England take on France on Wednesday November 17 at 22:00 CAT live on SuperSport 3 and for the match between Spain and Portugal on SuperSport 7 and SuperSport Maximo respectively, kicking off at 23:00 CAT.
