This Group B game sees Portugal vs Spain at the Fisht Olympic Stadium in Sochi.

The game will kick-off at 7pm BST, 2pm ET, 11am PT, 4am AEST, 7pm Lisbon, 8pm Madrid.

This Group B game sees rivals Spain and Portugal clash at the Fischt Olympic Stadium in Russia's Sochi. Spain are the 2010 World Cup champions putting them among the favourites to win this year. Spain vs Portugal is set to be one of the most interesting clashes of the World Cup 2018 group stages in Russia.

Spain began training fives days ahead of their first game with intense training sessions in Krasnodar, but their preparations turned to shambles after the decision was made to sack Julen Lopetegui just one day before the World Cup started. Their Iberian rivals, Portugal, have beaten Spain twice and lost three times in their last meetings. In the last 36 games against each other Spain have taken 18 victories.

Use a VPN to watch the World Cup 2018 from anywhere for FREE

You don't have to miss a single minute of World Cup soccer - even if the country where you are isn't broadcasting certain games. Because every second of action is being shown somewhere (the UK, for example, is televising every game for free - see below), you can simply use a VPN to login to a region that is broadcasting the game. And it's really easy to do:

1. Download and install a VPN
We've tested all of the major VPN services and we rate ExpressVPN as the absolute best. It's compatible with all of your devices, supports most streaming services and ranks amongst the fastest. You can even install it on devices like an Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Xbox and PlayStation.
