The FIFA World Cup kicked off this week, but most of us weren't able to score a ticket to Brazil. CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports on the best ways to follow the soccer action from your computer or smartphone.

[MUSIC] For true soccer fans, downloading the free ESPN Watch app is a must. If you're already a cable subscriber you can catch every single game for free on your computer, tablet of smartphone through the app. The sports giant has also launched a specialty website ESPN FC for in depth analysis, scores and highlight videos. If you're rooting hard for team USA and want customized alerts when your favorite player boots the winning goal, download the free app, theScore. Sync the team's schedule to your calendar. Set alerts for game times, and easily follow all statistics. To really get into the World Cup spirit, plug into the sounds of Brazil through music channel Spotify Loves Football. That's spotify.com/us/football. Groove to the official playlist from FIFA and other favorites from international soccer fans like Shakira and Avicii. And finally, to feel like you're really in Rio, use Google Maps and street-view to explore the stadiums, and local neighborhoods. In San Francisco I'm Carlas Debois for cnet.com cnet news.
