Brazil has already qualified for the round of 16, and Cameroon can still advance with a win on Friday.
Brazil has won both of its games without allowing a goal heading into its final Group G game against Cameroon. The five-time World Cup winners have already qualified for the knockout rounds and can clinch the top spot in Group G with a win or tie against Cameroon. After a loss to Switzerland and draw against Serbia, Cameroon needs to upset Brazil and also get some help from Serbia in its match against Switzerland. (For the various tie breakers in Group G, check out all the World Cup group scenarios.)
The Brazil-Cameroon game starts on Friday, Dec. 2, at 2 p.m. ET (11 a.m. PT). The match will be shown nationwide in the US on Peacock and Fox, which is available on numerous live TV streaming services. Outside the US, World Cup matches are being carried by other streaming services, including ITV in the UK, SBS in Australia and TSN in Canada. But what if you're traveling outside your home country and want to enjoy the match, or just want an added layer of privacy for streaming? There is an option that doesn't require searching the internet for a sketchy website: You can use a VPN, or virtual private network.
Here's how you can watch the game, and the rest of the 2022 World Cup, from anywhere in the world with a VPN.
Brazil and Cameroon play at 2 p.m. ET (11 a.m. PT) on Friday, Dec. 2.
Elsewhere in the world, the match starts at 10 p.m. in Qatar, 7 p.m. in London, and on Friday, Dec. 2 at 4 a.m. in Tokyo and 6 a.m. in Sydney.
If you find yourself unable to view the match locally, 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 match day by encrypting your traffic, plus it's a great idea for when 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. So if your internet provider or mobile carrier has stuck you with an IP address that incorrectly shows your location in a blackout zone, a VPN can correct that problem by giving you an IP address in your correct, nonblackout area. 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 and Canada, as long as you've got 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.

The Brazil-Cameroon match is on Fox in the US, so you'll need a live TV streaming service that carries a Fox station that's broadcasting the game. The least expensive such service is Sling TV Blue.
Among the live TV streaming services that carry local Fox stations and FS1, the cheapest is Sling TV Blue at $40 per month. Note that Sling is currently running a promotion where the first month of service is half-price ($20) for new subscribers.
One important caveat: While FS1 is available everywhere in the US on Sling TV, Fox local affiliates will only be available if your billing address is in one of the 18 metropolitan areas covered in Sling's agreement. If you're outside of one of these areas, you're probably better off going with one of the alternate services listed below.
Numerous other live TV streaming services carry FS1 and local Fox stations as well, namely YouTube TV, Hulu Plus Live TV, DirecTV Stream and FuboTV. They all cost more than Sling TV, but they also carry more channels. Check out our live TV streaming channel guide for details.
For Spanish-speaking US residents Peacock is airing all of the World Cup games live in Spanish. The remaining games will stream on its $5-a-month Peacock Premium subscription package, not the service's free tier.
Fans in the UK can watch every match of the 2022 World Cup for free. Games are split between two channels, the BBC and ITV; the Brazil-Cameroon match is on ITV. If you're away from home in the UK, you can use a VPN like ExpressVPN to watch ITVX (formerly ITV Hub), the streaming service for ITV, from anywhere.
Fans in Australia can stream all 64 World Cup matches live for free using SBS On Demand, the streaming home of the country's free-to-air TV network. The service also offers full replays, mini-matches and highlights.
In addition to the services and countries listed above, numerous other local fixtures are carrying the World Cup 2022. They include:
