Morocco vs Croatia
10am - ITV
Live coverage presented by Seema Jaswal, of both sides' opening Group F match from Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor, Qatar.

Commentary by Joe Cole, Nadia Nadim and Nigel de Jong, and commentary by Jon Champion and John Hartson.
Germany vs Japan
1pm - ITV
Mark Pougatch hosts live coverage as Group E gets under way with this clash at Khalifa International Stadium in Doha, Qatar.

Spain vs Costa Rica
4pm - ITV
Presented by Laura Woods, commentary by Eni Aluko, Gary Neville and Graeme Souness, and commentary by Clive Tyldesley and Lee Dixon with all the action from both teams' opening match of Group E, held at Al Thumama Stadium in Doha, Qatar. Spain finished four points clear of runners-up Sweden in their qualifying group to reach the tournament, and will now bid to emulate their sole triumph in 2010, having disappointed by going out in the group stage in 2014 and the last 16 four years ago.
Belgium vs Canada
7pm - BBC
Gary Lineker introduces live coverage as Canada contest their first World Cup game for 36 years, taking on a talented Belgian side who finished third at the 2018 tournament. Commentary comes from Steve Wilson and Jermaine Jenas.
The Canadians’ last World Cup appearance was in 1986, when they lost all three group games without scoring a single goal, but they will be hopeful of a more competitive showing this time around.
They beat both Mexico and the USA to top the final round of Concacaf qualifying, and a number of their squad play in top European leagues, such as Bayern Munich left-back Alphonso Davies and Lille striker Jonathan David.
