The final leg of the 2014 World Cup group stage has arrived! Some squads’ fates have already been sealed (sorry Spain!) but others like Brazil and Mexico will still be fighting for a spot in the Round of 16. So hunker down and catch all the action by tuning into the live stream below!
Many of you might be feeling a little depressed by Team USA’s heartbreaking tie against Portugal yesterday, June 22, but the 2014 World Cup is raging on — so cheer up and check out the huge games on tap today, as the Netherlands looks to go 3-0 in the group stage and home squad Brazil vies for a spot in the Round of 16.

Here are the four games you can live stream on June 23:
12:00 p.m. ET — Australia Vs. Spain
With both of these teams losing their first two games (Spain, WTF happened!?), this tilt literally means nothing — both teams have already been eliminated. But it will be interesting to see if Spain can show a little pride and register a win before leaving Brazil.
12:00 p.m. ET — Netherlands Vs. Chile
Both of these squads have already qualified for the next round, but the result of this game will determine who wins Group B and who merely moves on. The Netherlands have looked like one of the strongest teams in the field so far, but then again, nobody thought Chile was going to beat Spain last week. Let the battle begin!
4:00 p.m. ET — Cameroon Vs. Brazil
After two straight losses, Cameroon has nothing to play for. Brazil on the other hand will be looking for a resounding result. Sitting atop Group A with 4 points (and playing the worst team in group, Cameroon), Brazil is in a pretty good spot, but a loss would put the host country in quite a precarious position. The chances of the Brazilians not making it out of Group A are extremely minuscule though, which makes me think that the second late game of the day will be the most important…
4:00 p.m. ET — Croatia Vs. Mexico
Both these teams are still playing for a spot in the knockout stage — Mexico has 4 points so far, Croatia has 3. The terms are all pretty simple though — if Mexico wins or ties this game, they’ll make it through. But if Croatia wins, Mexico will be down and out, unless Brazil gets beaten by a much larger margin in their game against Cameroon (again, highly unlikely). This is our first de facto elimination game in the 2014 World Cup, and boy does it feel good.
So, which game are you looking forward to the most today? Let us know and don’t forget to check out the live stream above (Note: to stream the World Cup on ESPN, you must have a cable subscription).
