South Africa can still qualify for the knockout stages of the men's football tournament at the Rio Olympics if they beat Iraq at Arena Corinthians in Sao Paulo.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 2am BST. The game will be broadcast live on the BBC. Scroll down for the list of channels showing the game outside the UK.


All four teams in Group A can still qualify for the knockout stages going into the final round of fixtures, despite South Africa being the only team to suffer a defeat. Realistically, the Bafana Bafana need to beat Iraq by two goals to reverse their negative goal difference and hope Brazil beat Denmark in the other Group A match to qualify for the quarter-finals.

Iraq held much-fancied hosts Brazil to a goalless draw and will progress to the last eight stage by beating South Africa. A draw will leave the Asian team reliant on Denmark getting a result against the Selecao.

Iraq's biggest attacking threat comes from their left flank, where both Ali Adnan and Rizespor's Dhurgham Ismail operate.
