The FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 is just a bit over a month before it begins! The world’s greatest sporting event will bring excitement, happiness, and unity, as well as pain and sadness. The cup which will begin June 12, and set to end on July 13, will have a total of 64 games that will include 32 teams from 5 continents. Among those 32 finalists, the Mexican National Team will attempt to create history, and you, the viewer, will have the chance to catch it all on your nearest TV set, computer, or mobile device here in the United States.
The team coached by Miguel ‘Piojo’ Herrera was drawn into the difficult Group A along with Cameroon, Brazil, and Croatia. While all 64 games will be shown throughout the ESPN and Univision networks, Mexico’s games must be taken note of as they will undoubtedly be memorable.
The ‘tricolor’ plays Cameroon on June 13 in Natal, Brazil on June 17 in Fortaleza, and Croatia on June 23 in Recife. The first match against Cameroon will be shown on ESPN2, while the last two will be on ESPN. If on the road, or on the job, you will also be able to catch the games live on your mobile device on WatchESPN.com.
For those wanting to watch it in Spanish or do not have cable service, all three games will be available on the Univision sister channels (Univision, Univision Deportes, and UniMas). It has not yet been confirmed on which channels they will be on, but expect to have detailed pre-game, game, and post-match analysis for Mexico’s games in that network.
If Mexico wins Group A they will play in the Round-of-16 against the second place of Group B on June 28 in Belo Horizonte. If they finish in second of Group A, then they will play against the winner of Group B in Fortaleza on June 29.
