    "Great for watching live streams of the Rusia World Cup! So far so good - I'm not sure if once we move out of the groups stage they'll still be offering live stream of matches, but up til now its been great. All (and I mean all) games have been streamed in real time, HD. The match narrators are a bit dull, but its the BBC so you know what you're getting. Aside from the live streams you get pretty good team info, match analysis, statistics, etc. I've yet to try the official FIFA app, but for now BBC Sports has delivered. :D"

    "This is a good solution. I have 4 options for watching the world cup. I can watch it on the website, on my mobile, and on YouTube. The only hitch is that I gotta pay for these services. That said, for a spectacle like the World Cup, I would gladly cough up the dough. "

    "@Louis Bradley I dunno man, I find the Fox match narrators pretty annoying. Did you watch England vs Panama through them? I mean, c'mon, narators are supposed to be professional and they were basically mocking the Panamanian team the whole time. I know it was a 6-1 for England, but still the commentators should be less biased and respect all the teams that are playing on the World Cup. And you gotta admit that the lone Panama goal by Baloy was pretty sweet. BTW Go Colombia!!!!!"

    "While SofaScore does indeed cover soccer matches (football for you from the other side of the world), it doesn't really stream the games. It only provides live updates on standings and stats. If you wanna watch the world cup, there are other apps than this. But if you just want to follow the World Cup and other sporting events, this app is suitable."

    "This is a serviceable app. I use the FIFA Official App to check on the match statistics. And for a person as busy as I am, I find that this app suits my need. Official Apps are always the most reliable ones. Not necessarily the best, but reliable."

    "This is not what it seems. Its a pretty amateruish app that loaded with ads, that gives you useless info about the World Cup groups, matches, players etc, that you can find anywhere else. There are no live streams of the matches so for me its a misleading cash grab made so that you look at a few ads before uninstalling. Don't bother."

    "I can't believe Germany has been eliminated during the group stage!!!! The champ curse is definitely real. And to lose to South Korea for christ sake. I mean, no disrespect intended but lets not forget that during the qualifying rounds they had lost to both Qatar and China. Oh well. I hope they finally oust Jogi Löw after this fiasco."
