It's the biggest tournament for the biggest sport in the world, and it comes only once every four years. The 201

8 FIFA World Cup ™ will feature 32 teams and 64 games in four glorious action weeks in Russia. In the US, Fox and FS1 games will be broadcast in English, and Telemundo and NBC Universo will broadcast games in Spanish. Here's what you need to know to catch the entire World Cup this summer.

Which countries are playing?

Wait, the US has not qualified?

No, the US national team has not made it for the first time since 1986. But do not let the USMNT's absence ruin the summer football fun. There are modern Viking heroes Iceland (and a number of other teams) that you can accept for the month.

Remind me who the best footballers are.

Sure, here's a short introduction:

  • Lionel Messi has done everything in his career – just before winning a World Cup for Argentina
  • Cristiano Ronaldo, fresh from his fifth UEFA Champions League win, hopes winning Portugal's first World Cup title
  • Neymar leads Brazil, which has not won the World Cup since 2002, and 16 years is considered a long-term losing streak for the players of The Beautiful Game

The above three players are well the biggest names in football, at least for the untrained eye of this American. These names will probably also be heard in summer during World Cup participation:

  • Gabriel Jesus, Brazil's Other Star
  • Timo Werner, defending champion Germany's brilliant young pilot
  • Toni Kroos, Germany's allround midfielder
  • Luis Suárez, Uruguay's top goalscorer and top scorer of all time
  • Francisco Román Alarcón Suárez, aka Isco, Spain's incredibly talented attacking midfielder

When does the knockout start?

The end of June is getting serious. The group phase lasts from June 14th to June 28th. Then, the knockout phase begins on Saturday, June 30, as winners advance and losers go home.

Only the final is important to me. When is the final?

The 2018 World Champion will be crowned on the 15th of July. The final will begin on Sunday, July 15, at 11:00 ET (8:00 PT) from the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. It will be aired on Fox.

Where can I see highlights?

Twitter and Snapchat have teamed up with Fox Sports to show highlights in the US. You can see every goal from every game just moments after it happened on Twitter. There will also be game previews, flashbacks and other live broadcasts from Moscow's Red Square with US football stars Landon Donovan and Alexi Lalas. Snapchat lets you watch videos of highlights and reactions from football fans around the world.
