Topstar Public Relations manager Joy Chula says as UEFA Euro 2020 is underway; Topstar is beaming all the matches live
Ms Chula says this weekend will be packed with exciting fixtures as match day 2 ends on Saturday and match day 3 begins on Sunday.
“That means a total of eight matches from Friday to Sunday, all broadcast live and in HD on TopStar’s World football channel as well as on streaming app StarTimes ON,” she said.
Friday will have Group D clashes with England facing off Scotland in Wembley Stadium at 21:00 CAT, England and Scotland have the oldest rivalry in football history.
England who are considered to be favorites of the tournament, are on a high after an impressive victory over Croatia but a defeat against their neighbours would rob them of much of the momentum they are looking to build.
The loss against Czech Republic 2-0 leaves Scotland likely needing a win here to escape the group stages.
Also in Group D, Croatia will battle against Czech Republic at 18:00 CAT, while in Group E Sweden vs. Slovakia will take place at 15:00 CAT.
And on Saturday, the Group of Death, Group F, will provide an exciting match with Portugal facing Germany at 18:00 CAT on ST World Football.
Portugal beat Hungary 3-0 in their opening game, with Raphael Guerreiro opening the scoring before Ronaldo scored twice to take his European Championship haul to an all-time record of 11 goals.
Germany lost their opening game against world champions France 1-0 but with nine players having won the UEFA Champions League over the last nine months (Neuer, Müller, Gnabry, Goretzka, Joshua Kimmich, and Niklas Süle with Bayern; Havertz, Werner and Antonio Rüdiger, with Chelsea), they remain a serious threat for Portugal.
On the same day, France will try to take the Group F lead against Hungary at 15:00 CAT while the Spain vs. Poland match will kick off at 21:00 CAT.
Italy became the first side to book their place in the last 16 of Euro 2020 after a 3-0 win against Switzerland.
Wales took a significant step towards qualifying for the knock-out stages after prevailing 2-0 against Turkey.
They will seek a win against Italy on Sunday to secure the second qualifying spot in Group A, after drawing 1-1 with the Swiss in their opening game.
The game between Italy and Wales will be on Sunday 18:00 CAT.
And later on, the Switzerland will take on Turkey at 20:00 CAT.
