Argentina vs. Germany: 7/13/14 3 p.m. ET 

The 2014 World Cup final is down to Argentina and Germany. The former dispatched the Netherlands in the penalty kick round in the semifinals 4-2, while the latter completely destroyed Brazil 7-1 in their semi game.In all, Germany has put on an offensive show throughout the 2014 World Cup, scoring 17 goals in six games, while only giving up four. It’s worth noting that one of those was a garbage time goal against Brazil when the game was already in hand.Argentina has been no slouch either, forcing 8 goals in total, while only giving up three scores, not counting any penalty kick rounds.These two teams have a chance to solidify an undying legacy as World Cup champions. Lionel Messi, already a megastar, could become a legend with a great game tomorrow. On the other hand, Miroslav Klose, who is already the World Cup’s all time leading scorer (he passed Brazil legend Ronaldo in Germany’s semifinal game), could become a soccer deity in his own right by adding a World Cup victory to his resume.Thankfully, we won’t have to wait too long to see who emerges as the ultimate winner of the 2014 World Cup. Everything is at stake, and the loser of this game will be left wondering what was, and what could’ve been. Considering that this tournament is only held once every four years, the pain of losing such a monumental game will no doubt burn all the way through until the 2018 World Cup, and who knows if the teams that are participating in tomorrow’s final will be able to get back to this point four years from now.

For players like Miroslav Klose, who is 36 years of age, this may very much be a “now or never” game. Lionel Messi, on the other hand, who is 27 years old, has at least one, possibly two more World Cups in him, barring injury. Nevertheless, these stars will no doubt want to get the victory now, as opposed to having to wait another four years just for another chance to get back to this point.

Brazil vs. Netherlands:  Though the Netherlands almost advanced to tomorrow’s final, they came up short against Argentina in the penalty kick around, falling 4-2.While Brazil looks to be on equal footing with the Netherlands on paper based on the fact that they’ve also reached the third place game, they went down a completely different path on the way to this point in the tournament. Brazil was thoroughly embarrassed by Germany in the semifinal round, falling 7-1.Brazil can regain some measure of pride today by putting on a solid performance against the Netherlands, despite the fact that they have been knocked out of contention. After being thrashed by the Germans, Brazil almost needs to perform well today to save some face after being dismantled in their last game.

Network sites

ABC OnlineThough ESPN is championing the bulk of World Cup coverage, its sister station ABC plans to stream games during the weekends. The Watch ABC site isn’t available everywhere, but it takes just a few seconds to check your availability through the site. If offered, you’ll have access to the same video feed, announcers, and matchups airing on ABC on Saturdays and Sundays.

WatchESPNESPN, ESPN 2, and ABC will stream all 64 matches of the World Cup for unprecedented coverage. Cable subscribers have access to all 64 of the matches through ESPN’s streaming service Watch ESPN. ESPN’s streaming content is accessible via smartphones, tablets, Xbox Live (with an Xbox Live Gold membership), Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and Chromecast. To top it all off, the legendary Ian Darke is ESPN’s head game-caller for the entire tournament.

Univision Live StreamWhile ABC/ESPN have the English-language broadcast rights in the United States, Univision owns the Spanish-language broadcast rights for all the World Cup games. It’s showing 56 live matches, and has 24-hour content rolling out to viewers the day the tournament starts. Though the content streams in Spanish, Univision is delivering more content out of Brazil than any other domestic network except for ESPN and ABC. Fans have unlimited access to Univision’s content until the final rounds when you’ll need a paid subscription to continue viewing.

In order to open a Univision World Cup game stream, click on the link labeled “Univision Live Stream” above, and today’s schedule of games will be displayed on the right, with “Ver Partido en Vivo” next to each game. Click on that text next to whichever game you want to watch, and that will open up a free live stream which will start broadcasting a few minutes before that game kicks off.

BBC Sport and ITV PlayerBoth ITV and BBC are European based services though each site offers a wealth of World Cup content. BBC Sport features a wide variety of videos and coverage, though to no surprise it’s mainly themed around England’s national team. In addition to the planned 31 streamed games, BBC also offers a slew of live coverage and highlights. ITV Player is like Hulu for the UK though it does require a proper UK zip code to watch. It plans on streaming 34 total World Cup matches including 20 group stage games and 14 knockout stage matches.
