2018 FIFA WORLD CUP
June 14, 2018  | By David Bianculli

Fox, 11:00 a.m. ET

 

Russia is the host of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which begins this morning, with matches in this hugely popular international men’s tournament (hugely popular internationally, anyway) televised by either Fox or Fox Sports. The USA men’s team will not be taking part in the competition – not because our country is protesting Russia’s meddling in our election process, but because the USA team failed to make the cut of the world’s best 32 teams. The Korea Republic did, though, and so did Iran and Serbia, and Saudi Arabia and Senegal. America last! Today’s opening game, shown on Fox at 11 a.m. ET, has Russia, the host country, playing Saudi Arabia. Expect Russia to aggressively invade the other team’s territory.
