For Germany, this is their last chance to make it onto the next round. Costa Rica has a bit of a better chance at making it, but it will also depend on what happens in the Spain vs Japan match, which takes place at the same time.

Germany currently sits in last place in Group E with just a single point. While Costa Rica is currently tied with Japan for second place with 3 points. This is the last game for both teams in the group stage. With the top teams moving onto the knockout stage, starting on Friday.

Here’s how you can watch this all important Germany vs Costa Rica match from Qatar.

What time does Spain vs Japan kickoff?

Germany vs Costa Rica will kickoff at 2PM ET or 11AM PT if you’re on the West Coast.

It’ll be taking place at the Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor, Qatar. This is the biggest stadium in Qatar for the World Cup, with a 68,000-seat capacity available. It’s also where the opening ceremony was held.

How to watch Spain vs Japan

Much like every other World Cup game, Germany vs Costa Rica is available on FOX in the US. And it’ll start at 2PM ET/11AM PT in the US.

Fox is an OTA channel, so you can watch it without paying for anything. But you will need an antenna, if you don’t already have one.

If you’re looking to stream the World Cup, you can do so with Sling TV, YouTube TV, FuboTV and a few others out there. Or you can just head over to foxsports.com and watch it for free. You will get a one-hour free pass on Fox’s website, otherwise, you’ll need to login with a TV provider.

Sling TV

Sling TV is probably the cheapest way to watch the World Cup, if you’re looking to stream. It’s currently $40 per month for Sling Blue, which has Fox included. However you can get your first month for half off. You’ll also be able to DVR the World Cup, with 50 hours of DVR included here. Sling TV also offers 3 device streams with the Blue package.

Important to keep in mind that Fox is not available everywhere with Sling TV, as it only has some affiliates.

You can sign up for Sling TV here. It no longer offers a free trial, instead it knocks 50% off of your first month.

FuboTV is a bit more expensive, but it is also the best streaming service for sports, particularly Soccer. That’s because it does offer a ton of sports channels. But in reference to the World Cup, it does have Fox in almost every market. So you can watch every World Cup game on FuboTV.

FuboTV does have a free trial, which is about a week long. After that, you’ll be paying $69.99 per month for its Pro plan. Or up to $99 per month for its Ultimate plan. You can sign up for FuboTV by clicking here.

Hulu + Live TV

Like some of the others here, Hulu + Live TV does also offer up Fox in almost every market in the US. So you’ll be able to watch the World Cup on Hulu + Live TV. It is one of the more expensive services on here, at $69.99, but it does also include the Disney+ bundle for that price. So definitely not a bad bundle here.

YouTube TV

YouTube TV is definitely our favorite streaming service, and a big reason for that is the unlimited cloud DVR. So you could record every World Cup match, and not worry about storage at all. You can also share it with up to five family members. Which gives them their own library, recommendations and more.

YouTube TV is similar in price to FuboTV and Hulu + Live TV, at $65 per month. But it might seem like a much better price due to that unlimited cloud DVR that’s included here.
