Update: The Dutch pick apart Spain 5-1

Friday's World Cup slate features arguably the most highly anticipated group stage match of the entire tournament: The rematch of last World Cup's final between Spain and the Netherlands (3 p.m. ET, ESPN).

Spain are a little older this time around, but they still return the core of their championship team, and most of their stars are coming off solid seasons for Real Madrid and Barcelona. They're joined by newcomer Diego Costa, the Atlético Madrid star who switched from Brazil to Spain just before the World Cup.

The Netherlands are a different team this time around thanks to the tinkering of manager Louis van Gaal, who will move to Manchester United after the tournament. The versatility of his defenders and midfielders allows him to switch between a three and four-man defense with the same personnel, so it won't be easy to tell how they're going to counter Spain from their starting lineup.

If you live in America, there's more than one option for watching the game online. If you want to watch in English, ESPN is showing the match on their Watch ESPN service, if you have access through your television or Internet provider. ESPN will also have feeds with Portuguese audio, as well as a tactical camera. Prefer to watch La Roja in Spanish or don't get Watch ESPN? You have options. Univision also offers an online service called Univision En Vivo.

In the U.K., ITV is showing the game on ITV Player. In Canada, CBC Sports is showing the game through their live streaming service. You can check out listings for other countries as well at Live Soccer TV.
