How to watch and stream Spain vs Costa Rica on TV and online in the United States, United Kingdom & India.

Spain will take on Costa Rica in their first Group E match at the 2022 World Cup on Wednesday at the Al Thumama Stadium. Luis Enrique's team is set to begin their 12th consecutive World Cup campaign but face fixtures in a tricky Group E alongside Germany, Japan and Costa Rica.

La Roja edged Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal to top their Nations League group earlier this year but will want to deliver a much more dominant performance on the biggest international stage. Costa Rica are unlikely to cause too much trouble for their opponents but their five-match unbeaten run will give them hope to pull off a shock result.

GOAL brings you details on where to watch the game on TV in the U.S., UK and India as well as how to stream live online.
