Now that the group stage has ended and sent half the teams home, the crucial knockout stage is upon us. It really isn’t the time to be missing games because you’re out of the country. Watch the FIFA World Cup online anywhere you are with Le VPN, by connecting to an overseas IP address and connect to a broadcaster showing the matches.
A potentially great ending to one of the most exciting World Cup’s in recent history is a Brazil Argentina final. Not that either team has an easy path to the final, Brazil must overcome a tough Chile team with the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal. Many didn’t fancy Chile’s chances of making it out of their group with Spain, Netherlands and Australia, but this team is a far cry from the Chile that has been beaten by Brazil 5 times in the past 6 meetings. As for Argentina, Messi and co face Switzerland before coming up against either the Netherlands or Mexico in the Quarter Final. If both can reach the final, Neymar vs Messi is an exciting prospect to finish the tournament.
Elsewhere there have been a few surprises with teams not expected to make it out the group stage. USA were dealt a difficult group on paper against the likes of Germany, Portugal and Ghana, who made it to the Quarter Finals in South Africa back in 2010. But even without their key player Jozy Altidore, a respectable win and draw was all it took to edge out Ghana and Portugal to finish behind Germany. As for Portugal, the 2014 World Cup will be one to forget for the current Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo.
If you happen to be travelling whilst the World Cup is on and need to watch any of the games online, you might find you won’t be able to connect to your usual broadcaster from back home. If you’re from the US then sites such as ESPN and NBC have extensive coverage of the World Cup in Brazil, but you won’t be able to access this unless you are in the US. Likewise if you’re from the UK, BBC and ITV not only have all the games live but extra content such as classic games, analysis and highlights. Regional restrictions imposed by the broadcasters allow only those in the country to view them. By signing up to Le VPN, you can bypass this and watch any game and extra features as if you were back home.
