Brazil won in 2009 - will they do it again?

It's the Confederations Cup 2013 Final; Meath meet Wexford, Kildare meet Dublin and Michael Bublé takes a day off.

The Confederations Cup 2013: The Final
10.45pm, RTÉ Two

Darragh Maloney is joined by Richie Sadlier and Ronnie Whelan for live coverage from Rio de Janeiro of the Confederations Cup Final. Commentary from George Hamilton and Ray Houghton, kick-off 11.00pm. The tournament has been getting good ratings - in excess of 50 million people worldwide tuned in to watch the Brazil-Italy game alone. Of course, it has not been without its controversy, with, on one day alone, two million Brazilians taking to the streets, 300,000 in Rio. There have been clashes with police too in cities hosting the Confederations Cup. Among the myriad of grievances is the fact that $12 billion is being spent on next year’s World Cup, which will be hosted by Brazil.

The Sunday Game Live
1.30pm, RTÉ Two

Michael Lyster is joined by Joe Brolly and Pat Spillane for a Leinster Senior Football Championship live double-header from Croke Park.

This is followed by Dublin v Kildare in the second semi-final, throw-in 4.00pm, commentary from Marty Morrissey and Martin Carney. Then watch The Sunday Game at 8.30pm on RTÉ Two, where Des Cahill will be joined by Eamonn O’Hara, Ger Loughnane, Kevin McStay and Tomás Mulcahy for a look back at the weekend’s action.


Michael Bublé’s Day Off
8.00pm, ITV

In this intimate portrait, Michael Bublé takes a day off in his hometown of Vancouver to spend time with his family and friends before he finally heads off unannounced to his 20th High School Reunion. Bublé's all-time favourite movie is Ferris Bueller's Day Off and ahead of his upcoming world tour, he decides to spend a day hanging out doing his favourite things. He drops by to have a coffee with his 86-year-old grandpa, meets his friends at the local McDonald's and prepares lunch with his sisters. During the show he also gives exclusive performances of World on a String, Come Dance with Me, Young at Heart, and, of course, Home. Bublé is pictured below with his wife, Luisana Lopilato.
