Can 2018 really be the year when football comes home? Panama is the next team standing in England's way at the Russia 2018 World Cup, and the flashes of brilliance against Tunisia have given some Three Lions fans a little hope of glory. We'll tell you how to watch England vs Panama at the World Cup – absolutely free – wherever in the world you are.
It took a Harry Kane brace to secure victory in England's first World Cup game of Russia 2018, after being 1-1 for the majority of the match. Gareth Southgate's men will take heart from the 3-0 thumping that Belgium gave Panama and will have in the back of their minds that a win here would pretty much secure their passage to the last 16.
Below we'll tell you when and where you can tune into England vs Panama. And if you happen to be out of the country but still want to get hold of the UK broadcast coverage of the World Cup encounter, we can tell you a nifty, legal trick that will allow you to live stream the England vs Panama match even if you find yourself region-blocked.
Live stream England vs Panama for free from anywhere in the world
Live stream the World Cup with a VPN
If the country where you are either isn't showing today's Engand vs Panama match or is making you pay, then there's a very simple way to get hold of the UK free live stream. The trick is to download and install a VPN, which then allows you to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location. We've tested hundreds of VPNs and can recommend Express VPN as the best option currently available:
Express VPN (comes with a 30 day money back guarantee) and is the #1 rated best VPN in the world right now. You can watch on many devices at once including Smart TVs, Fire TV Stick, PC, Mac, iPhone, Android phone, iPads, tablets etc. Check out Express VPN
Once it's been downloaded and installed, open the app and select a UK server location (it's super easy) and then head over to the TVPlayer.com (a reliable, free and legal streaming site) from 7pm BST in time for kick-off.
How to watch England vs Panama in the UK
BBC is the place to be for England vs Panama if you're going to be watching in the UK. Kick-off is at 1pm BST (so 8am ET, 5am PT, 10PM AEST and 2pm in most mainland European countries) and you can watch the World Cup group G game on your TV, streaming device, online or via the iPlayer app for mobiles and tablets.
If your TV is rocking a 4K UHD picture, there may still be an opportunity to get 4K footage from the BBC either on the iPlayer app (on a first come first served basis) or via your PlayStation Pro. And if you fancy going th whole hog and watching the game in VR, the BBC is offering a PlayStation VR watching experience, too.
Not in the UK but still want to catch the coverage? Then you can always use a VPN as described above.
Where else has an England vs Panama final live stream?
Most countries around the world are showing the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia - but in some territories it's on paid-for subscription TV rather than free-to-air networks. If you've missed a lot of the World Cup already because you're a cord cutter and the country you're in only has cable coverage, then going down the VPN route as described above is a brilliant alternative.
But if you are already subscribed to certain paid-for services and cable options elsewhere, we can tell you who else is broadcasting the football in your corner of the world:
Watch the World Cup in the US
Watch the World Cup in Canada
It's TSN and RDS in Canada if you want the local coverage of Panama vs England.
Watch the World Cup in Australia
This one's a freebie. It wasn't originally meant to be, as subscription service Optus had the rights to most games. But it made such a foul up of the early games, free-to-air broadcaster SBS stepped in and is now showing every single group game free of charge.
