How can I watch the World Cup matches in the US?
All matches will be broadcast on Fox or its FS1 channel. TV shows will be mostly in Spanish on Telemundo, but if two games are being played simultaneously, Universo will choose one.
Peacock will broadcast the broadcast in Spanish, and the first 12 games will not require a subscription. (After that, Peacock Premium is $5 per month.)
To stream Fox Sports broadcasts in English, you’ll need a subscription to a streaming package that includes Fox, YouTube TV, Hulu, SlingTV, or Fubo. (Some offer free trials.) Tubi will stream games for free, but only as a replay after the games are over.
When will the United States play their matches in the group stage?
Monday: United States v. Wales. 11 am Pacific. Fox, Telemundo, Peacock (Free).
Friday: England versus the United States. 11 am Pacific. Fox, Telemundo, Peacock.
November 29: Iran versus the United States. 11 am Pacific. Fox, Telemundo, Peacock.
How did the Americans in the past?
This is the 11th US Men’s World Cup. The team’s best performance came in the first World Cup in 1930, held in Uruguay, when it reached the semi-finals. But that tournament was missing many top teams from Europe. The best recent performance was a quarter-final berth in 2002. (American women have won the World Cup four times.)
How will they do this time?
England are the comfortable favorites in the Americans’ group, from which two teams qualify. But the United States is generally considered the second favorite, just ahead of Wales. Iran is the intruder.
The opening match is decisive. If the Americans beat Wales, they will be in a strong position to advance. But the loss meant they might have to beat England for second place.
Should the United States advance, they will face a round-of-16 match on December 3 or December 4, very likely against the Netherlands, tournament contenders. The opponent in the quarter-finals could be Argentina or Denmark. It will only get more difficult from there.
Bookmakers are offering approximately 150-1 odds on the United States winning the World Cup.
Who is on the final list?
The average age of the United States men’s soccer team is 25 years, 214 days; They will be the second youngest of the 32 World Cup teams, according to Nielsen’s Gracenote, the data provider. Only Ghana, with an average age of 25 years and 108 days, has a squad younger than 26 players.
