Preview – World Cup: Day 4

Germany Mexico

The current World Cup champions, Germany, begin their defence of the title this afternoon.

The Germans take on Mexico, and both sides are on good form. Germany were unbeaten in qualifying, while the Mexicans lost just one of their qualifiers. In the last World Cup, Germany famously knocked-out host nation Brazil 7-1 in the semi-finals. The Brazilians will be trying to put that behind them as they begin their campaign against the Swiss this evening.

Before all this there is also another match, with Costa Rica taking on Serbia.

Costa Rica v Serbia is on ITV at 12.30 (kick-off 13.00).

Germany v Mexico is on BBC One at 15.30 (kick-off 16.00).

Brazil v Switzerland is on ITV at 18.30 (kick-off 19.00).
