FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 live on ITV

0

ITV and ITV4 will bring viewers extensive live coverage of every match from the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia as the country steps up its preparations for next year’s World Cup.

Featuring eight of the best international teams from across the globe, the tournament kicks off on 17 June and will be played across four cities in the host country, with the final taking place at Krestovsky Stadium, St Petersburg, on 2 July.

Russia qualified automatically as hosts and are joined by six winners of FIFA regional championships across the world including Euro 2016 winners Portugal, Africa Cup of Nations victors Cameroon, Copa America winners Chile, plus Australia, Mexico and New Zealand, along with 2014 World Cup winners Germany.

Portugal are out to make it back-to-back tournament triumphs after Euro 2016 glory in France and coach Fernando Santos has selected a strong squad to complete that task, including talisman Cristiano Ronaldo.

Meanwhile the reigning world champions Germany have selected an inexperienced side for the competition, with only six of the squad having played at Euro 2016 last summer and just three from the 2014 success in Brazil.

Away from the European contenders, Chile look to be the strongest challengers with Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal set to lead their side, but the Copa America champions’ recent poor record away from home may count against them.

The eight-nation tournament rarely makes too many headlines in the UK, but ITV will have live coverage of every match, providing fans with some free-to-air summer football entertainment.

Follow the entire tournament from 17 June to 2 July with every match live across ITV, ITV4 and ITV.com. Scroll down for further details about ITV’s coverage, as well as an overview of the TV schedule and kick off times.
