Cameroon take a break from their Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers when they square off against Uzbekistan at the Goyang Stadium in a friendly clash on Friday.

The Turanians, on the other hand, head into the weekend on a run of six consecutive victories across all competitions and will be looking to march on in the same vein.

We say: Cameroon 2-1 Uzbekistan

Uzbekistan head into the weekend firing on all cylinders, having won each of their last seven outings. However, with their AFCON success fresh in their memory, Cameroon will take to the pitch full of confidence. We predict a thrilling contest on Friday with the Indomitable Lions grinding out a narrow win.

In the final international break before the 2022 World Cup, South Korea will welcome Costa Rica to the Deokyang Eoulim Nuri Stadium for their latest fixture.

Both teams have the chance to create some momentum, while each manager could also use this fixture as a chance to get a look at a variety of squad members ahead of the upcoming tournament.

We say: South Korea 3-1 Costa Rica

Both of these teams will want to build as much momentum as possible heading into the World Cup, and because they are each going to Qatar, this will likely be a tense friendly.

South Korea should take advantage of the fact they are playing at home though, and their attacking qualities will likely be enough to see them through in this one.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

We are less than two months away from the start of the World Cup, as Japan and the USA square off at Merkur Spiel-Arena in Dusseldorf on Friday.

It will only be the third time that these nations meet in an international encounter, with the Yanks winning the previous friendly 3-2 in 2006, while the Samurai Blue took home the first fixture 3-1 at the 1993 Kirin Cup.

We say: Japan 1-1 USA

Even though the Americans are ranked 10 places higher than Japan according to FIFA, we do not believe on paper that the US are that much better, especially seeing as they have played primarily against teams from CONCACAF over the past few years.

There is quality and creativity on both sides, and they each have plenty of experience with top European clubs, but we expect defensively that each team will be able to keep the scoring chances to a minimum.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Both looking to ramp up their preparations for the upcoming World Cup in Qatar, Iran and Uruguay will do battle in an International Friendly in Austria on Friday.

The two nations each did enough to progress to the global competition without going through an Inter-Confederation playoff and will aim to build further momentum ahead of the beginning of the group stage in two months.

We say: Iran 1-2 Uruguay

Both sides will be full of confidence and looking to build momentum with plenty of star men on show, and we see La Celeste’s squad as slightly stronger all round and back them to triumph and continue an unbeaten run under the refreshing new management of Alonso.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Paraguay and United Arab Emirates will meet for an International Friendly in Austria on Friday.

Both nations fell short of reaching the upcoming World Cup, with Paraguay finishing ninth in the South American Qualifying group and their opponents losing to Australia in a knockout tie.

We say: Paraguay 2-1 United Arab Emirates

We anticipate a tight encounter but put Paraguay’s squad just above that of their opponents and lean just towards them for the result, in a game which could well be separated by a single goal.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Qatar and Canada will meet for the first time on Friday at Generali Arena in Austria in a pre-tournament friendly ahead of the World Cup in November.

The Maroon come into this encounter unbeaten in seven successive matches in all competitions, while the Canucks have dropped two of their previous three fixtures.

We say: Canada 2-1 Qatar

Friday’s fixture could tell us a lot about how these teams are looking heading into the World Cup, and they should be a good match for one another.

Both know how to buckle down and hold a lead, but we are giving the Canadians an edge because they have more proven attacking talent who have performed consistently well both internationally and in some of the most competitive leagues in Europe.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

With the 2022 World Cup right around the corner, both Saudi Arabia and Ecuador will have the chance to build some momentum before Qatar when they compete on Friday at Estadio Nueva Condomina.

The two teams come into the match in contrasting form, with the hosts looking to get back to winning ways, while the visitors are pushing for a continuation of their recent results.

We say: Saudi Arabia 0-1 Ecuador

This is a game between two teams that certainly need to improve their attacking qualities before the World Cup begins as they are each struggling for goals.

However, the fact that Ecuador have been able to make up for that with great defensive performances, they should be able to take a victory here in what will likely be a close game.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Egypt and Niger take a break from their 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers when they lock horns at the Borg El Arab Stadium in a thrilling friendly on Friday.

Jean-Michel Cavalli’s side head into the weekend fresh off the back of ending a run of six consecutive games without a win and will be looking to keep the juggernaut rolling.

We say: Egypt 2-0 Niger

While Niger will be looking to build on their victory over Togo, they face the stern challenge of taking on an Egypt side, who have won their last eight games on home turf. Given the gulf in class and quality between the two sides, we predict the Pharaohs will claim a comfortable win in front of their home fans once again.

Brazil take on Ghana in an international friendly on Friday.

The match will be played at Stade Oceane in Le Havre, France, helping reduce travel time for the majority of both nations’ European-based players.

We say: Brazil 2-0 Ghana

Ghana should be boosted by the addition of a few top quality fresh faces, but we still expect Brazil to have too much for them on Friday.

Despite leaving Jesus at home, Tite has a scary array of attacking quality to select from while generally keeping his side well-stocked in terms of numbers behind the ball.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

On the back of a winning start to Africa Cup of Nations Qualifying and with the World Cup looming, Morocco will aim to continue building momentum when they take on Chile in an International Friendly in Spain on Friday.

The Atlas Lions have seen a pair of qualifying games against Zimbabwe postponed, meaning their two upcoming friendlies are their last scheduled outings before travelling to Qatar in November.

We say: Morocco 2-1 Chile

Morocco may boast a slightly stronger and fresher squad than their opponents, and with the added motivation of the looming World Cup, we back them to scrape a narrow victory on Friday.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Argentina take on Honduras in an international friendly at Hard Rock Stadium in Florida, USA, on Friday evening local time.

The match will provide crucial preparation for the South American side ahead of the forthcoming winter World Cup in Qatar.

We say: Argentina 3-0 Honduras

We expect Argentina to be far too strong for Honduras, who endured a dreadful World Cup qualifying campaign.

La Albiceleste are a more solid unit under Scaloni, and Messi will want to continue his supreme form for Paris Saint-Germain into his nation’s upcoming friendlies.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.
