This is the weekend we all dread in football, the international break.

After being hyped up watching our favourite teams play, the momentum is crushed by the international break, when nations play boring friendlies and qualifiers.

It's not as if there won't be any football on Saturday countries slug it out on the pitch is not like watching your favourite club sweat it out for three valuable points in the race for the league title. 

 

International break weekends are usually downers, bars and viewing centres don't have the same ambiance and atmosphere during as club football weekends. They are mostly boring and lacklustre.

Despite the dull atmosphere, the weekend can still be salvaged by engaging in some cool activities when your favourite football stars are being patriotic.

1) Cinema

Instead of being stuck at home with nothing to do at home, you can go to the cinema and watch a movie or two. As a matter of fact, watching two or three movies in a row. Buy several popcorns and watch the two best movies the cinema is showing on Saturday and Sunday. This will help you forget about the no football action this weekend.

2)  Get together

If you are not the cinema going type, plan a get-together. Call a few friends over to your crib, buy a few drinks with small chops and make sure your playlist is lit. Have fun with your friends, talk, discuss and argue about everything. This would be a great way to spend the day and forget all about football.

3) Netflix and chill

So you don't feel like inviting a bunch of people over to your crib. That's cool. Another option for you is Netflix and chill or depending on where you get your TV series/movies from- hard drive and chill, USB and chill or Torrent and chill. Spending time and watching a new dope TV series with your bae or crush is a lovely way to spend the weekend during the international break.

4) Grab a book

If you are not into Netflix and Chill, you can kill time during the weekend by reading a book or two. Buy a book on Thursday and Friday. On Saturday morning start reading the book. You won't notice when the dry weekend will be over.

5) International football

If you must watch football this weekend, then give international football a shot. Hey, it might not be action packed like club football but at least it is still football. If that won't satisfy your hunger, go on YouTube and watch classic football matches till the weekend is over.
