World Cup 2018: How to Watch Germany vs Mexico

Germany begins its defense of the World Cup title

Stream Online: Hulu with Live TV or fuboTV (Try for free)

Germany is heading to Russia to defend its 2014 World Cup win in Brazil, and it's one of the favorites to win the tournament this year. Germany absolutely blew through all the World Cup qualifiers in 2016 and 2017, winning all of its 10 matches. It hasn't had much luck in the friendly games that followed, dropping two, tying three, and winning a single game, so it's a good thing those matches don't count. Mexico has qualified for the last six World Cups, but was eliminated in the round of 16 each time, so it'll be hoping to improve this year. It's the only team representing North America, with the United States failing to qualify (Canada has only qualified for a single World Cup tournament).

The game at Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow, starts at 6 p.m. local time, or 11 a.m. Eastern (8 a.m. Pacific). You can watch it live on FS1 in English, or in Spanish on Telemundo and NBC Universo through your cable company. If you don't have cable you can stream it via Hulu with Live TV, or fuboTV. If you can't watch the game live, fuboTV provides access to all of the games for up to 72 hours after the original airing.

Germany, Mexico, Sweden and South Korea compete in Group F. It would be a massive upset if Germany didn't move on to the knockout stage beginning June 30th.
