    Unfortunately This Handy Schedule Is Fixed In UTC-3.

    For Me UTC+1 Would Be The Real Deal.

    Some Bugs: 'Match 62' Was Not Corrected Yet.

    I Tried To Correct It, But I Lost The Ability To Edit WIKIPEDIA - I Do Not Know Why.

      Another vote for One Football. Interesting. We cannot support anyone watching copyrighted streams online, and remind you that these websites may be breaking the law where you live.

    It says above: "Have your say"

    Here is what I wish to say.

    I understand that many millions of people have a love for their favorite sport(s). I have no problem with them enjoying what they love. Let them rejoice when their team wins, scores points, and cry and moan when their team loses or fails in some way.

    However, there are still millions of us out here who do not comprehend the appeal of sporting events.

    So, in short, in direct reply to your query: "We want to know, The 2014 World Cup: What Websites & Apps Do You Recommend? "

    Thank you and have a great day.

      Is There A Thing Called Love ?

      Has It Touched You Ever ?

      On SUNDAY, JULY 1 1979, I Was Lucky To Be At Home And Watching The Last Laps Of FRANCE 1979, On An Old Black And White TV - I Was 22.

      Until Then XOANDRE Could Just As Easily Be My Name - After That Day, Not In A Million Years.

      Cheers.

      You're entitled to you opinion, but then so are those who love sports and wish to talk about them online and off. We wouldn't normally cover a sporting event in this way, but the World Cup is unique in the spread and scope of its appeal around the world.

    I would be refering to the website http://www.onefootball.com/ and as I am using the Lumia 630, I would be using their app itself. The have designed the app for all the popular OS like iOS, Android, WP OS, Blackberry and Windows 8.

    It Provides :

    All teams - customise your experience and follow your favourite team anytime and anywhere.
    All news - get the breaking news and latest videos on all 32 teams in 15 languages.
    All matches - don't miss a kick. Get up-to-the-minute live commentary, highlights and statistics for every match.
    All players - The most comprehensive statistics on your favourite players from any team.

    Very comprehensive and my choice of app and website for the FIFA World Cup Football at Brasil for the Yera 2014. :) And I just hope Brasil winds it too. :P
