Where can I watch the Brazil vs Mexico World Cup game?

After Brazil’s confident (and some would say controversial) entry into the 2014 World Cup, the host nation takes on Mexico at the Estádio Castelão, in Fortaleza. 

The upcoming Group A match will be broadcast live on BBC One in the UK at 8:00pm – not so late that you’ll need to stay up to the small hours to get every minute of the action. 

Should you need to set your Freeview, YouView, Sky+HD or Virgin Media TiVo box to record the match or you’re able to watch it live, here’s everything you need to know – plus how you can stream the game live online.
