Though Thursday’s World Cup Qualifier between Germany and Northern Ireland isn’t likely to have a large impact–unless something drastic happens, Germany will ultimately qualify for Russia and Northern Ireland will head to the second-round playoffs–but it should still be an entertaining affair between the Group C leaders in Belfast.

In the United States, the match will start at 2:45 p.m. ET and be broadcast on Fox Soccer Plus (English), Univision Deportes and UniMas (Spanish). If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can watch a live stream via one of the following cable-free, live-TV services:
