World Cup playoffs live: How to watch, stream, start time

Joe Prince-Wright, Nick Mendola and Andy Edwards look into their crystal ball for the upcoming Premier League season one day after Championship Sunday.

The final spot for the 2022 World Cup will be decided Tuesday, as the World Cup playoffs take center stage in Qatar.

Australia got the first spot when substitute goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne played hero in penalties to defy Peru a spot in Qatar. Now Costa Rica vs New Zealand will decide team No. 32 at the 2022 World Cup.

The final intercontinental playoffs may be just as epic, as an intense 90 minutes (or longer) awaits us.

Costa Rica will be the favorite but New Zealand is looking to make just a third-ever appearance -- their other two were in 1982 and 2010 -- at the tournament.

Los Ticos finished fourth in CONCACAF qualifying (just one place below the USMNT, with whom they finished level on points) and are ranked 31st in the world, 70 places higher than New Zealand.

Based on their world ranking alone, this should be a walk in the park for Costa Rica. But we all know it doesn’t work like that. At all.

Below are full details on how to watch the World Cup playoffs live on Telemundo Deportes, the official Spanish language home of the 2022 World Cup in the United States of America.
