The World's biggest sporting event is back as the 2018 World Cup begins on Thursday (June 14th).  Russia is the host this year. With the U.S.A out, will you still watch?

The 2018 World Cup is in Russia and begins on Thursday with the host nation taking on Saudi Arabia.   The cup will run until a champion is crowned on July 15th.

One team missing from the cup this year is the United States National Team.  They did not qualify and will miss out on this year's action.

With the U.S. out of the tournament, will you still watch any of the games?

There should still be some great games featured one that i will try to watch is the match between Germany and Mexico on Sunday, June 17th Father's Day. Portugal and Spain should be another great group stage match up. That match takes place on Friday, June 15th.

Fox Sports is scheduled to air all of the matches and all they are all set to be broadcast on either Fox or Fox Sports 1.   Due to the cup being in Russia, the game times are all scheduled to be aired in the morning and in the afternoon.

It will be hard to get into the cup with the U.S.A out of it, but it will still be worth it to catch a few of the matches.

Fox Sports has put together a great fan guide on the entire 2018 World Cup.  You can get a full schedule of games for the 2018 World Cup here.
