JOHANNESBURG - Gugu Mhlungu speaks to Christophe Bongo, football analyst & African Pride podcast host. We have been counting the sleeps and it is finally here! The 2018 Fifa World Cup kicks off today in Russia.

Bongo says he will be watching the tournament closely and he thinks an African team can pull a surprise at the tournament, particularly Senegal.

He says that gives them an advantage given that they have been there before, in 2002.

Bongo says this is going to be one of the most watched World Cups given the growth and strength of social media and the festivities surrounding the tournament.
