Ever since the USMNT stunned Ghana on June 16, every American has been dying to see the boys in red, white and blue get back on the pitch. The day has finally arrived — USA faces off against Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal on June 22, and you can watch that game and more by live streaming the World Cup below.
“I believe that we will win!” That’s what you’ll hear ringing out from every bar in the United States at 6 p.m. ET on June 22 when the US Men’s National Team squares off against Portugal. But even before the U.S. takes on Cristiano Ronaldo and company, you can watch two more World Cup games to prepare yourself — and you can do it all by tuning into the live stream below.
World Cup 2014 Live Stream — Watch USA Vs. Portugal
Here’s what’s on tap for Day 11 of the World Cup:
12:00 p.m. ET — Belgium Vs. Russia
Both of these teams needed late goals to reverse their fortunes in their first games. Belgium roared back late to fight off the upset and beat Algeria 2-1, while Russia scored late to salvage a tie with South Korea. After this game, we’ll see which of these teams is for real, and which one’s likely not making it to the knockout phase.
3:oo p.m. ET — South Korea Vs. Algeria
Sorry, but this one strikes me as a bit of a snooze fest. Unfortunately it seems like we might be in store for one of those infamous 0-0 ties. But don’t worry, because the best is yet to come…
6:00 p.m. ET — United States Vs. Portugal
With the USMNT grabbing a victory in the last minutes against Ghana on June 16, soccer hype has never been bigger in the States — they’re one-third of the way through the Group of Death and they couldn’t be in a better position. But there’s still a ton of work left to be done. First up — Portugal, who is ranked 4th in the world. A sign of hope for the Americans though is that Portugal actually got walloped by Germany in their first game, and star forward Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t exactly healthy. If you thought nationalism was at an all-time high after the Ghana game, just wait to see what’ll happen if the U.S. beats Portugal and advances out of the group stage.
The anticipation is killing me — I’m sure it’s killing you. But when the time comes, don’t miss a second of the action by live streaming the games above (Note: to stream the World Cup on ESPN, you must have a cable subscription).
