We are now over halfway through World Cup 2018's group games, but still none the wiser over who will win this summer's tournament with teams not finding their composure.

Brazil won late on in their game on Friday, a day after Argentina were defeated by Croatia. And Germany squeaked to a last-gasp win over Sweden on Saturday leaving them with a path to the last 16 and a credible defence of their world title.

With a busy schedule, here is our guide on how to watch every second of the action – a feast of pretty much non-stop football. 

The full World Cup 2018 fixture schedule is included below, with timings, venues and TV channels included.

All times BST. Local times are BST +2 apart from games played in Kaliningrad (+1), Samara (+3) and Ekaterinburg (+4).
