  1. Donaldinho says:

    Thanks for listing these. I notice the France-Ukraine 2nd leg is missing from Nov. 19. Is this on ESPN3 as well?

    • Christopher Harris says:

      It’s not confirmed yet. Hopefully yes. But I’ll update it as soon as I get the confirmation.

      • DaveM says:

        According to the WatchESPN website, the 2nd leg of France-Ukraine is scheduled for EPSN3.

        Also the Sweden-Portugal 2nd leg is scheduled for ESPN2.

        ESPN has been known to switch things around on their website, but as of now that is what it is showing.

        In addition beIN has been advertising they will be showing all the African qualifiers as they did the first legs.

        • Christopher Harris says:

          Awesome. Thanks Dave!

          As soon as I get official confirmation from ESPN, I’ll update the schedule accordingly (if there are any more changes).

  2. R.O says:

    What a load of crap (not your post Chris). Portugal-Sweden on ESPN Deportes! What the? (Yes I know it’s on ESPN3 for all those lowers of watching things on smart phones, tablets and internet vs on TV).

    Only those that have Spanish Pkg can see deportes. But ESPN will have crap Mexico game for all.

    Ukraine – France only on ESPN3?

    Big playoff games getting out of the main line coverage. Typically for the US.

  3. San Fransiscan says:

    What? No Jordan vs. Uruguay?

    • Christopher Harris says:

      Nothing yet. Hopefully someone will pick up the first leg between now and Wednesday.

      • San Fransiscan says:

        Hopefully that’s the case or how would we know if Suarez dived his way to the World Cup.

      • DaveM says:

        The first leg on 11/13 will be shown on One World Sports. I am not sure other than Dish who carries it but you you can stream the match through their website without a subscription.

        The 2nd leg on 11/20 I have not seen confirmed yet for any broadcaster.

        • Christopher Harris says:

          Thanks for the heads-up Dave about One World Sports. I updated the listing for that. And I just found out that the 2nd leg between Uruguay-Jordan will be shown live on beIN SPORT, so I’ve updated the list accordingly.

  4. Porque? says:

    Kickoff time for Mexico vs New Zealand on November 13 should be 3:30pm ET/12:30pm PT (2:30pm CT in Mexico City).

  5. Ivan says:

    Awful awful awful job by ESPN in “promoting” the upcoming World Cup.

    How could they have the rights to some top-notch mathups and only put those games online? No excuses! Absolutely awful!

    Show the Ukraine-France game on ESPN or ESPNNews, for Christ’s sake; what is wrong with this network???

    Why is Sweden-Portugal on ESPN Deportes, a channel that noone gets without a Spanish language package…

    • Christopher Harris says:

      Let’s hold off until we get the final list of games from ESPN Schedules are subject to change, but the above list is correct as of press time.

      • Porque? says:

        France vs Ukraine on November 19 should be live on Univision Deportes Network, TO BE CONFIRMED.

        • Porque? says:

          France v Ukraine on November 19 is now confirmed to be LIVE on Univision Deportes Network (UDN), as we have expected all along.

          Televisa has Spanish-language rights to all France home games in both Mexico and the U.S. through May 2014. Televisa owns 45% of Univision.

  6. TiLoBrown says:

    A US game on NBCSN. I wonder if they’ll use the MLS set up or the EPL one with an actual studio

  7. Porque? says:

    FYI to DIRECTV subs:

    DIRECTV now offers a $4.99/month DIRECTV Deportes add-on package which includes ESPN Deportes, FOX Deportes, beIN Sport en Espanol, TyC Sports (USA), and GOLTV.

    This package is much cheaper than the $14.99/month en Espanol add-on package.

  8. maetzing says:

    Thanks for the post, Chris. Have you come across anything for the Germany/Italy friendly on Friday?

    • Christopher Harris says:

      Thanks for the question. I’ve updated the list to include the Italy vs Germany game. It’ll be on Univision Deportes and RAI International.

  9. John says:

    Thanks, needed the reminder. Portugal v Sweden and England v Germany now recording.
