One of the pretournament favorites get their campaign underway at the 2023 Women's World Cup on Saturday, as the much-fancied England take on underdogs Haiti in this Group D clash.

Having clinched the European Championship on home turf last summer, the Lionesses will be hoping to capitalise on that momentum.

Head coach Sarina Wiegman will, however, be without two key players from that triumph, with captain Leah Williamson and Chelsea star Fran Kirby both ruled out of the tournament because of knee injuries.

Ranked No. 53 in the world, Haiti are making their first appearance in a Women's World Cup, with this match also marking the first time these two nations have played each other.

Below, we'll outline the best live TV streaming services to use to watch England vs. Haiti, no matter where you are in the world.

England vs. Haiti: When and where?

This Group D clash takes place at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Saturday, July 22. 

Kick-off is set for 7:30 p.m. AEST local time in Australia, which makes it a 5:30 a.m. EDT or 2:30 a.m. PDT start in the US and Canada, and a 10:30 a.m. BST kick-off in the UK.

How to watch the FIFA Women's World Cup 2023 online from anywhere using a VPN

If you find yourself unable to view the tournament locally, you may need a different way to watch this match -- that's where using a VPN can come in handy. A VPN is also the best way to stop your ISP from throttling your speeds on game day by encrypting your traffic, and it's also a great idea if you're traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network, and you want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and logins.

With a VPN, you're able to virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to get access to the game. Most VPNs, like our Editors' Choice, ExpressVPN, make it really easy to do this.

Using a VPN to watch or stream sports is legal in any country where VPNs are legal, including the US, UK and Australia, as long as you have a legitimate subscription to the service you're streaming. You should be sure your VPN is set up correctly to prevent leaks: Even where VPNs are legal, the streaming service may terminate the account of anyone it deems to be circumventing correctly applied blackout restrictions.

Quick tips for streaming the 2023 Women's World Cup using a VPN

  • With four variables at play -- your ISP, browser, video streaming provider and VPN -- your experience and success when streaming the Women's World Cup action live may vary.
  • If you don't see your desired location as a default option for ExpressVPN, try using the "search for city or country" option.
  • If you're having trouble getting the game after you've turned on your VPN and set it to the correct viewing area, there are two things you can try for a quick fix. First, log into your streaming service subscription account and make sure the address registered for the account is an address in the correct viewing area. If not, you may need to change the physical address on file with your account. Second, some smart TVs -- like Roku -- don't have VPN apps you can install directly on the device itself. Instead, you'll have to install the VPN on your router or the mobile hotspot you're using (like your phone) so that any device on its Wi-Fi network now appears in the correct viewing location.
  • All of the VPN providers we recommend have helpful instructions on their main site for quickly installing the VPN on your router. In some cases with smart TV services, after you install a cable network's sports app, you'll be asked to verify a numeric code or click a link sent to your email address on file for your smart TV. This is where having a VPN on your router will also help, since both devices will appear to be in the correct location. 
  • And remember, browsers can often give away a location despite using a VPN, so be sure you're using a privacy-first browser to log into your services. We normally recommend Brave.
