Monday 2014 FIFA World Cup (Round of 16) action gets underway with a clash between France (Francia) and Nigeria, which will be televised in English (TV schedule), Spanish (Español), and via free live stream in both languages online (en vivo) thanks to ESPN and Univision. As a FIFA June 30 report indicates, France would be wise not to take Nigeria lightly this afternoon.
Estádio Nacional de Brasilia in Brasília, Brazil, will be the site for this intercontinental showdown, scheduled to get underway at 12 p.m. Eastern Time (11 a.m. CT/10 a.m. MT/9 a.m. PT). As far as viewing options are concerned, needless to say that there are a number of ways to watch this match depending on language of choice.
English speaking soccer fans watching on television can simply tune to ESPN half-hour before the TV scheduled start time to watch the action as it happens live from Brazil. Meanwhile, Spanish-speaking futbol aficionados can tune to Univision at 11:30 a.m. ET to watch Francia vs. Nigeria (Copa Mundial FIFA Brasil 2014) en vivo y en Español.
The online viewing experience is very similar but with a few wrinkles, especially for soccer fans in the United States, Canada and Brazil. Those watching this match in Spanish can visit Univision Deportes at the aforementioned TV start time to stream the action live.
