World Cup qualifying action continues today across two continents as Africa joins the party.

Here's how to watch Chelsea players in international action on Saturday, November, 12, 2016.

NIGERIA vs. Algeria (World Cup 2018 qualifier)

When:  16:00 GMT; 11am EST
Where:  Godswill Akpabio International Stadium Stadium, Uyo, Nigeria
Who:  Mikel John Obi (77), Kenneth Omeruo (33), Victor Moses (26)
How: beIN Sports (USA); elsewhere

Why: Two heavyweights in good form; must win for either, especially for Nigeria.

Cape Verde vs. BURKINA FASO (World Cup 2018 qualifier)

When:  19:45 GMT; 2:45pm EST
Where:  Estádio Nacional de Cabo Verde Stadium, Praia, Cape Varde
Who:  Bertrand Traoré (30)
How:  beIN Sports Connect (USA); elsewhere

Why: The island nation have scored just one goal in their last five games (four losses).  The Stallions of Thousand Upper Volta should have this one no problems.

SPAIN vs. Macedonia (World Cup 2018 qualifier)

When:  19:45 GMT; 2:45pm EST
Where:  Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes Stadium. Granada, Spain
Who:  César Azpilicueta (17)
How:  Sky Sports Red Button (UK); ESPN3 (USA); elsewhere

Why: Sorry, Macedonia...  (With Costa sent home, Azpilicueta is the only Chelsea representative left standing.)

Wales vs. SERBIA (World Cup 2018 qualifier)

When:  19:45 GMT; 2:45pm EST
Where:  Cardiff City Stadium, Cardiff, Wales
Who:  Branislav Ivanović (90), Nemanja Matić (29)
How:  Sky Sports 1 (UK); ESPN3 (USA); elsewhere

Why: Every game is crucial in Group D as Serbia, Wales, Ireland, and Austria all vie for the top spot.  Serbia are in first place at the moment thanks to a drastic and long-awaited turnaround in their fortunes.

Morocco vs. IVORY COAST (World Cup 2018 qualifier)

When:  20:00 GMT; 3pm EST
Where:  Stade de Marrakech. Marrakech, Morocco
Who:  Victorien Angban (4)
How:  none (UK/USA); elsewhere

Why: Still not much is known about mystery-man Victorien Angban, and the sketchy TV situation of this game will probably keep it the lid on things for a bit while longer.
