Where are you from? In Europe most the world cup will be free to watch. Otherwise TF1 is watchable via a vpn, and I think ITV might be too.

Yeah then vpn through uk and watch BBC/ITV depending on the match. I think they alternate but they broadcast them all. It should work.

Edit: although, apparently the bbc has banned vpn users (from some vpn providers) from watching iplayer :/

Great start by the hosts, but my word, Saudi Arabia were absolutely awful.

Lol, what a pathetic player Ronaldo is. Look at the direction he kicks the ball and then where he runs. So obvious he was 100% looking for contact. Unbelievable that the referee falls for it.

Just looked at two things about the technique to make the trophy and how they clean it!!! It's over 13 pounds of 18 karat gold...est value between 12-20 million dollars... Italian craftsmanship

Have to disagree. Only watched the first half but Morocco have some very technically gifted players (ziyech, harit, amrabat, belhanda) and produced some very good football. Iran defended very well, not allowing many spaces. It was far, far better quality than Egypt and Uruguay. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Iran pulled out a 0-0 draw against portugal or spain, or morocco drew or even beat those teams either.

excellent match, isco keeps becoming incredible whenever he plays for spain and ronaldo had by far his best ever match at a major tournament. Interestingly, half his world cup goals came today.

Mr Hat Trick Man is also Mr Tax Avoider -
https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/cristiano-ronaldo-accepts-two-year-12714662
Ronaldo denied the alleged tax evasion when he appeared in court last summer but the case has still not been settled.

His initial offer was reportedly rejected last month but El Mundo claim (see http://www.elmundo.es/deportes/football-leaks/2018/06/15/5b23a57e22601dcf128b4609.html ) he has accepted a prison sentence and admitted his guilt, in exchange for a reduced charge.

He will also pay a sum amounting to exactly €18.8m (£16.4m).

Morocco-Iran (and the Saudi team too) and the issues of cramp within 90 minutes and the soporific pace as the game drew towards a conclusion may also have been affected by the fact that Eid al-Fitr was yesterday, so their preparation will have been affected by Ramadan.

I also though the same whilst watching the latter stages, it was also pretty obvious that Egypt were starting to tire drastically in the final 15 minutes, it just can’t help that they aren’t able to take in food and water during daylight hours whilst trying to compete at the top level. Whereas in the case of Saudi Arabia I think they were just absolutely woeful, and no surprise to see they are on of the lowest ranked sides at the tournament.

As for today, an absolute feast of action with 4 games in 11 hours. All of them look like decent fixtures, too.

France scrape past Australia (they'll be better against sides that play to them - they're so quick on the counter but don't have someone who is able to create something out of nothing and unlock a good defence).

Iceland draw against Argentina. Argentina had 80% of the ball but created remarkably little, and that's down to Iceland's brilliant defence. Halldorsson is a beast.

Scrappy football so far today - not surprising with first games. Hope Croatia - Nigeria raises the level.
