2018 World Cup: Time, TV schedule and how to watch Belgium vs. Panama online

Welcome to the World Cup, Panama!

The 2018 World Cup is bringing us some intrigue so far—Iceland tying Argentina? Mexico beating Germany? Switzerland tying Brazil?? That 3-3 between Portugal and Spain??? There’s no time to catch your breath, though. Group F wraps up its first games today with Sweden against South Korea, then you’ve got Group G on deck with potential contenders Belgium taking on first-timers Panama, and you’ll end your afternoon with Tunisia against England. Will there be intrigue? You bet there will! (Probably.)

Sweden vs. South Korea

What to watch for: If you caught the Germany/Mexico game yesterday, then you may be wondering how Group F is going to shake out. Neither Sweden nor South Korea are powerhouses, but if one of them grabs a win, it’s going to put some pressure on Germany to get things together. Sweden is also here to answer the “How are they without Zlatan?” question.

Location: Nizhny Novgorod Stadium (Nizhny Novgorod)

Kickoff time: 8:00am Eastern

Available TV: Fox Sports 1, Telemundo

Available streaming: Fox Sports Go, Telemundo (direct link, friends, just click it!)

Belgium vs. Panama

What to watch for: This is Panama’s first World Cup, which is 1) adorable, and 2) probably a little terrifying for their fans and maybe the players themselves. They have to face Belgium in their first game of the tournament, a daunting prospect given that some are tagging the Belgians to win the whole thing. It’s easy to think Belgium will cruise here, but we’ve already seen that there are no guarantees in the World Cup.

Location: Fisht Olympic Stadium (Sochi)

Kickoff time: 11:00 am Eastern

Tunisia vs. England

What to watch for: England seems to have a love/hate relationship with big tournaments—their fans want so much, and the team never really delivers. They have to put the sting of Round of 16 exits behind them (bye, World Cup 2014 and Euro 2016), and perhaps luckily, they’re up against Tunisia first. I know, I know, anything can happen. But like...England is probably going to win? My apologies to Tunisia, for whom I wish only the best.

Location: Volgograd Arena (Volgograd)

Kickoff time: 2:00pm Eastern
