How to watch the FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 on live streaming

The FIFA World Cup 2018 is just around the corner, but before that, you can see the champions of each Football Confederation compete amongst each other.

If you don't know what to watch on television in the next few days, we suggest the FIFA Confederations Cup 2017. Why bother to watch a between-competition event? Because any excuse is a good excuse when you can watch Cristiano Ronaldo and Alexis Sanchez do battle on the field or see Germany playing.

If you love football, these names aren't unknown and their quality is unquestionable. Cristiano Ronaldo is notching up records, step-by-step, and this year he became the UEFA Champions League all-time top goal scorer, with 105 goals. We don't have any doubt that Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best players in the world.

Alexis Sanchez won the Golden Ball of the Copa America Centenario. A respected striker in the Premier League, and a world class player, he has an excellent technical ability, agility, flair and acceleration, which has made him one of the most feared strikers of this competition.

Germany doesn't need any introduction: it's the World Champion. Or to be precise: it's four times World Champion (1954, 1974, 1990 and 2014) and three times European Champion (1972, 1980 and 1996). Germany’s team is one of the most successful national sides in international competitions.

What is the FIFA Confederations Cup?

The FIFA Confederations Cup is a tournament where the champions of each of the six international football associations (UEFA, CONMEBOL, CONCACAF, CAF, AFC, OFC), along with the FIFA World Cup holder and the host nation, compete for one more trophy.

It all began in late 1992 when Saudi Arabia decided to organize an international competition where the champions of each Confederation were invited. This proto-FIFA Confederations Cup was entitled the King Fahd Cup and there was only one more competition with this name.

In 1997, FIFA took over the organization of this cup and renamed it the FIFA Confederations Cup. Retroactively, the King Fahd Cup was recognized as a Confederations Cup competition.

Since then, it has been played every two years, until 2005. From this year the format changed to every four years, one year before the FIFA World Cup and is hosted in the same country as the World Cup is to be held (like a test for the organization and for FIFA).
