The FIFA World Cup Qatar quarter-finals continue with a tense bout between England and France this Saturday, December 10 at 2:00 PM EST. Watch all the action for free when you geo-shift your IP address to the UK with ExpressVPN.

If you’ve been keeping up with the global competition between the world’s best soccer teams, you know that catching each game in the United States hasn’t been cheap or easy. FOX has exclusive rights to broadcast the World Cup in the U.S., meaning viewers have had to either subscribe to a cable package or a streaming service that includes FOX networks, like FuboTV. Unless, of course, you’re sly enough to sign up for ExpressVPN and stream the games via free British streaming services.

The game between France vs. England is slated to be streamed on ITV1, a free-to-air British broadcast channel. While ITV1 won’t cost you a penny, you typically need to be located in the United Kingdom and provide an appropriate postal code in order to access it. However, ExpressVPN offers a clever workaround, letting you alter your digital location (among other perks) to make the streaming service think you’re in the U.K. By using ExpressVPN, you’re able to register for ITV1 and enjoy access to FIFA’s France vs. England quarter-finals match and any subsequent games.

While ExpressVPN is a paid service, the company offers a 30-day money-back guarantee. You can sign up for a one-month plan for $12.95 or save on an annual at just $8.32 per month. All ExpressVPN options include the 30-day money-back guarantee to test out the premium VPN service completely risk-free.
