With the journey to Russia 2018 resuming around the globe this week, a clash of titans is the headline act in the Confederations of African Football (CAF) qualification campaign.
 
African football giants Nigeria and Cameroon will resume an age-old rivalry stretching back over 50 years when they face-off on Friday in the first match of a double-header fixture, with the second scheduled for Monday next week.  
 
The Super Eagles-Indomitable Lions rivalry is one of African football’s most iconic encounters and was at the peak of continental football during the 1980s when they played out countless classics, including the 1984 Afcon final.   
 
The upcoming double-header is definitely the most anticipated fixture of round three and four of the World Cup qualifiers as the continent has been starved of this match; the two nations having faced off just three times in the last 17 years. Both fixtures, along with a selection of other CAF qualifiers, will be broadcast live on SuperSport.
 
South Africa, currently sitting second in Group D behind Burkina Faso on goal difference, will be looking to keep up the pressure on the log-leaders when they travel to Cape Verde on Friday. Bafana Bafana will then be hoping to ride some momentum into the second-leg tie at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban next Tuesday.

The continent’s other World Cup hopefuls continue their quest for qualification as Ghana take on the Congo, Uganda play Egypt and Zambia go up against Algeria.

Meanwhile, the highlight of the South American fixtures sees bitter rivals Uruguay and Argentina battle it out on Friday at 12.55am, but not before Chile host Paraguay at 12.15am.
