ESPN International sports NFL vets in Super Bowl XLVI coverage

INDIANAPOLIS — The NFL and Super Bowl fan base continues to grow rapidly outside the United States, and so does ESPN International’s presence in our comprehensive coverage during the week.

In the videos above and below, our International talent hailing from Australia, Brazil, Mexico and Bristol, Conn. reflect on how they’re presenting Super Bowl XLVI from Lucas Oil Stadium.

Current Dallas Cowboys punter Mat McBriar is pictured above right with ESPN Australia SportsCenter anchor Jason Bennett. McBriar is a two-time Pro Bowl punter who hails from Melbourne, Australia. He and Bennett have provided information and analysis not only for ESPN Australia viewers but for those watching in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

In the video below, meet former NFL placekicker Raul Allegre. The ESPN Deportes NFL analyst won two Super Bowls with the New York Giants (1986 and 1990) and also played for the Indianapolis Colts in the 1980s.

After Allegre, meet journalist Andre Kfouri and Everaldo Marques as they reflect on the growing interest in the NFL in Brazil. Marques and Paulo Antunes will provide the play-by-play and analysis for ESPN in Brazil viewers.

This year, ESPN International will air Super Bowl XLVI live to more than 68 million households in 162 countries and territories throughout Latin America, the Caribbean, Brazil, Africa, the Middle East, Israel, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the Pacific Rim, and much of Europe. Commentary and analysis will be provided in English, French, Portuguese and Spanish.
