Qatar vs. Ecuador free live stream: How to watch World Cup inaugural game online without cable

The 2022 FIFA World Cup has arrived as host nation Qatar will open the tournament as per tradition. The inaugural match comes against fellow Group A team Ecuador.

Qatar will look to benefit from the “host bump” which has seen every host nation but one qualify for the knockout stage in modern World Cup history. Only South Africa in 2010 did not qualify, and even then they performed above expectations, only missing out on goal differential despite victory over France in the final group stage match.

Ecuador, meanwhile, enter the tournament with the summer’s controversy behind them. The South American nation weathered challenges to their World Cup eligibility, and will now look to defend their fourth-place finish in CONMEBOL qualification.

Fans in the United States can catch a free live stream of the match on fuboTV thanks to a free trial available for new users.
