After a thrilling three games of pool play, The U.S. Men's National Team (USMNT) has advanced to the knockout round of the World Cup and will face The Netherlands 

FOX 2 is airing many of the biggest matchups including the U.S. men’s team on Saturday, Dec. 3, while FOX Sports will air other thrilling World Cup matches live across FOX and FS1, with every match livestreaming on the FOX Sports App.

Here are the ways you can watch World Cup matches:

How to watch on FOX 2

On Saturday, Dec. 3, USMNT will face Netherlands in the first game of the knockout stage of the World Cup. The stakes are simple: win and advance. Lose? You go home. 

FOX Sports is carrying the game and you can watch it for free on FOX 2.

But if you're not near a TV or like to watch things on your tablet or phone, you can stream it snap on the FOX Sports App, provided you have a cable or satellite TV subscription.

You can also watch the game on YouTube TV or Hulu Live, but those require a subscription to watch.

USMNT got through to the knockout stage after surviving pool play with England, Wales, and Iran. After going 0-0 against both England and Wales, the United States needed a win over Iran to advance and they got it thanks to a gutsy play by Christian Pulisic, who crashed headfirst into Iran's goalkeeper in the 38th minute.

Pulisic promises to do everything he can to be ready to play the Netherlands on Saturday and the U.S. will need him. In five matches, the U.S. is 1-4 against the Netherlands, all friendlies, overcoming a two-goal deficit to win 4-3 at Amsterdam in 2015.
