The international break provided a chance for Africa’s top football countries to get back to trading hard tackles on the pitch this week for the first time since the CAF Africa Cup of Nations in Cote d’Ivoire.
From spectacular friendlies against South American opposition to the start of the new FIFA Series, it’s an opportunity for several of the continent’s Big Boys to get back on the grind.

Newly-crowned African champions Cote d’Ivoire lead the way with two eye-catching fixtures lined up in France.

The Elephants open their March doings against Benin in Amiens on the 23rd, before a game against Uruguay and their flashy coach Marcelo Bielsa awaits in Lens three days later.
It promises to be an epic test against the two-time World Cup champs as the Ivorians begin preparations for June’s World Cup qualifiers.
Fellow West African giants Senegal are also in friendly action in Amiens, taking on Gabon on the 22nd and Benin again four days later.
Former African Player of the Year, Sadio Mane, and his Teranga Lions teammates will be bouncing back from a disappointing CAF AFCON tourney.
Nigeria’s Super Eagles get into the international window when they face Ghana in Marrakech on March 22nd.
The Super Eagles were beaten in last month’s AFCON final by Cote d’Ivoire and will be eager to gain revenge over their great rivals following Ghana’s World Cup playoff win last year.
Elsewhere, Africa’s representatives in the new FIFA Series competition get underway, with Algeria hosting Bolivia and South Africa in Algiers.
New Fennecs coach Vladimir Petkovic takes charge of his first matches as he looks to galvanize the recent underachievers.
Morocco is also in friendly action on home soil, with Angola and Mauritania the visitors to Agadir later this month.
After an abundance of drama at the AFCON, the international schedule offers Africa’s elite another chance to strut their stuff on the global stage.
