Egypt takes on Belgium this weekend in a pre-World Cup friendly

Tick, tock, World Cup: As the world prepares for the biggest fixture on the global football calendar, the participating teams are warming up with a few friendlies before the real action kicks off. There are a few games to keep an eye on this weekend, starting with Jordan v Spain at 6pm this evening, followed by Portugal v Nigeria at 8.45pm.

On Friday at 5pm, our national team will be going up against Belgium. The match will take place in Kuwait, and the Pharaohs have landed there already.

The real deal kicks off next week: Qatar and Ecuador will get the 2022 World Cup underway on Sunday. The two teams will kick off at the 60k-capacity Al Bayt Stadium at 18:00 CLT after the opening ceremony (17:00 CLT), kicking off the tournament that will clog all of our sports feeds (and the EnterprisePM sports section) for the next four weeks.

** Keep your eyes on your inboxes tomorrow: We’ll be out with our guide to the tournament when we publish this month’s Your Wealth at the appointed hour on Friday morning.
