Excitement is building for the Costa Rica and Peru World Cup playoffs scheduled for June 13-14. As a consequence, FOX Sports are televising the upcoming World Cup qualifiers that determine the final two teams at Qatar 2022.
The final two places feature teams from CONCACAF, Oceania, Asia and CONMEBOL battling it out. First, Peru plays Australia on June 13. Second, Costa Rica faces New Zealand on June 14. Both games are available in English-language via FOX Sports. As reported by World Soccer Talk last month, the games are also available on Spanish-language TV.
Costa Rica and Peru World Cup playoffs on TV
In summary, the matches between Peru versus Australia and Costa Rica against New Zealand are FIFA Inter-Confederation Playoffs. As a result, here are where you can watch the games:
Monday, June 13
Peru vs. Australia, 2PM ET; FS1, Telemundo, Universo and fuboTV
Tuesday, June 14
Costa Rica vs. New Zealand, 2PM ET; FS2, Telemundo, Universo and fuboTV
In regards to the Costa Rica and Peru World Cup playoffs, why is Costa Rica-New Zealand on FS2 instead of FS1? That’s because FS1 is featuring the UEFA Nations League match between Germany and Italy that afternoon.
FIFA controversy about Peru’s place in the World Cup
In World Cup qualifying, accusations that Ecuador fielded an ineligible player could hold the South American side from playing in the 2022 World Cup. As a result, that may have an impact on Peru.
The Chilean Soccer Federation filed a complaint that Byron Castillo used a false birth certificate and nationality. Therefore, the 23-year-old defender should not have been allowed to play in CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifying. After 18 games, Ecuador finished in fourth. Chile finished seventh, seven point behind the Ecuadorians.
A potential shakeup in the standings could see Peru receive an automatic spot. As the 22nd-ranked team in the world, it would be an automatic qualifier as a pot three team.
