Tips on how to Watch the U.S. on the World Cup: Where to Stream and What to Expect


4 years ago, American fans watched the World Cup with heavy hearts since the U.S. men had shockingly didn’t qualify. However the eight-year wait is over. The US is back, and after a gap 1-1 draw against Wales it has two more huge games in Qatar (and, U.S. fans hope, perhaps greater than that).

All games shall be broadcast on Fox or its FS1 cable channel. Telecasts in Spanish will mostly be on Telemundo, but when two games are played concurrently, Universo will pick one up.

Peacock will stream the Spanish-language broadcasts, and the primary 12 games won’t require a subscription. (After that, Peacock Premium is $5 a month.)

To stream the English-language Fox Sports broadcasts, you’ll need a subscription to a streaming package that features Fox, like YouTube TV, Hulu, SlingTV or Fubo. (Some offer free trials.) Tubi will stream the games without spending a dime, but only as replays, after the games are over.

Friday, Nov. 25: England vs. United States. 2 p.m. Eastern. Fox, Telemundo, Peacock.

Tuesday, Nov. 29: Iran vs. United States. 2 p.m. Eastern. Fox, Telemundo, Peacock.

That is the eleventh World Cup for the U.S. men. The team’s best performance got here in the primary World Cup in 1930, held in Uruguay, when it made the semifinals. That tournament was missing several top teams from Europe, nevertheless. One of the best recent performance was a quarterfinal berth in 2002. (The U.S. women have won the World Cup 4 times.)

Within the opening games, Wales and america drew and England crushed Iran. So the second qualifying spot from the group may go to whichever of america and Wales can manage a draw or perhaps a win against England.

If each america and Wales lose to England, the qualifying spot could possibly be determined by which one beats Iran by more goals. (On Tuesday, the ultimate day of the Group B games, Wales shall be playing England similtaneously america plays Iran.)

Should america advance, it could face a game within the round of 16 on Dec. 3 or 4, quite possibly against the Netherlands, a tournament contender. A quarterfinal opponent could possibly be Argentina or Denmark. And it could only get tougher from there.

Bookmakers offered roughly 150-to-1 odds on america lifting the World Cup.

The US men’s soccer team has a median age of 25 years 214 days; they shall be the second-youngest of the 32 World Cup squads, based on Nielsen’s Gracenote, a knowledge provider. Only Ghana, with a median of 25 years 108 days, has a younger 26-man squad.
