How To Stream The USA vs. Japan Women's World Cup Final, Because You Won't Watch To Miss This Legendary Meeting Of Rivals
Get ready to extend your patriotic plans from the 4th of July into the 5th, because this Sunday, the United States' Women's National Team (USWNT) takes on Japan in the final of the FIFA World Cup. If you haven't been keeping up, shame on you! Only kidding, but you should certainly support the US team on Sunday, July 5 at 7 PM E.T. It's bound to be an exciting match, not only as the final but as two longtime rivals meet again: the US team and Japan have a long, historic rivalry that goes back to 2011. In a nail-biting match, the US team sadly lost to Japan in the final during a penalty shootout. Now, the USNWT is back, and they're on fire, looking to secure their third cup title. Lenny Kravitz would agree: these American women are dangerous in the best way. But if you're confused about where you can watch the final match between the USA and Japan, don't worry: we've got you covered.
Luckily, we live in the digital age, baby, and while everyone might not have cable, there are a number of options online where you can catch all the excitement of the final, so you've got no excuse to miss it. It's of course being televised on Fox 1, but here's where you can get down with all the goals online:
Your Cable Provider
If you do happen to have a cable subscription (or, you know, your parents or roommate's parents do), you can stream the FIFA final through your cable provider. Comcast and COX Cable have streaming options, for instance.
Fox Sports Go
Fox Sports has incredible coverage of the World Cup this year, and if you have a cable subscription, you can access their Fox Sports Go app. It's available for iOs and Android in their respective app stores, and besides streaming the games, you can get plenty of supplementary coverage and play-by-play commentaries.
Fox Soccer 2Go
If you don't have cable, not to worry! Fox has a soccer option just for you—Fox Soccer 2Go has all the FIFA games available for streaming, and rugby matches too, if you're into that sort of thing. A monthly subscription is available for $19.99, and split between friends, it's well worth the cost.
Luckily—or strategically—PlayStation rolled out their streaming service earlier this year, PlayStation Vue. Fox Soccer Plus is one of the channels available, so your PlayStation can now be more than just your DVD player—it can also be your FIFA headquarters.
Telemundo offers very comprehensive soccer (futbol) coverage, and you can stream the Copa Mundial through their website.
Other options include, of course, hitting up your favorite local bars to watch the game—but no matter where you watch the final match, make sure you have a beer in hand and plenty of good vibes for those amazing, kickass US women.
