    No USA- Trinidad match on FS1 or ESPN?

    Bulgaria vs. France switched from FS2 to Fox Sports Go & replaced by a blow out college football game & then back to the match!

    Looks like they aren’t going to put Wales on FS2 Gaffer.

      I know! It sucks. It’s on FOX Deportes, so I’ve been watching it there since Noon ET.

    Moldova vs Republic of Ireland is also being aired on tape delay at 2.45pm Eastern on ESPN Deportes.

      Hi Joel, actually it’ll be live at 2:45pm ET on ESPN Deportes, ESPN3 and Sling Orange, not on tape delay.

    The Syria-Australia AFC Playoff is scheduled for 8:30 AM Eastern time on ESPN3 and not at Noon.

      Thanks for the update Gonzalo. ESPN had the time listed incorrectly at first, so I’ve updated the article with the correct kickoff time.
