African champions, Cameroon will begin their quest to be the first team from the continent to win the Confederations Cup when they tackle Chile on Sunday.

Nigerian football fans can follow the competition on StarTimes World Football, according to the pay television outfit, which disclosed yesterday that it would be broadcast all the matches of the competition, including the African and South American challenge in the match day two of FIFA organized Confederation Cup at the Otkrytiye Arena, Moscow.

Cameroun, making a comeback 14 years later, will participate for the third time in its history of this competition. It was in 2003 that the Indomitable Lions gave their best performance by reaching the final against France. Mourning the tragic death of Marc-Vivien Foé, the Cameroonians also fell 0-1 to the European champions.


The African champions once again will be going into the challenge as outsiders hoping to make such a good course as in 2003.

The Chileans on the other hand are hoping to create a big surprise. By winning the Copa América in front of its public, the Chilean selection validated its ticket for the Confederations Cup in Russia. For this first participation, analysts believe the team led by Juan Antonio Pizzi will try to play cunningly its chance and surprise the planet football.

StarTimes has assured football viewers can enjoy the best of the World Cup and other thrilling sporting actions on its ST World Football Channels 244 and 254.
