Portugal enter this match in third place in Group E after following up an opening-round defeat to the Netherlands with an encouraging 2-0 victory over Vietnam. However, if they are to avoid an early exit, they will need to take at least a point against the reigning world champions and hope that the Netherlands suffer an unlikely defeat against Vietnam. That’s a tall order, but as the Dutch team proved last week, this USA side can be contained. However, Portugal a draw may not be enough. The European side will likely need all three points if they are to advance further. 

The USA currently top the group and will confirm their qualification for the first knockout with even just a draw. However, don’t expect them to play for a point, the USWNT will want to advance to the last 16 as group winners, which they can do with a win (and a better goal difference than the Netherlands). The USA have won the Women’s World Cup a record five times and reached the round of 16 at every single iteration of the competition since its inception, don’t expect that impressive record to be broken at this year's tournament as they are in a prime position to progress.    

The Portgual vs USA live stream should be a thrilling game, as Portgual cannot afford to lose, and the USWNT are always a joy to watch.

How to watch Portugal vs USA anywhere

Portugal vs USA live streams will be shown on many different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual service?

The answer is to use a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN will let you tune into your home coverage from wherever you are — meaning that if you're abroad, you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live as if you were in your lounge.

Our favorite right now is ExpressVPN, thanks to its combination of superb speed, great customer service and excellent device support. It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could check it out without having to sign up long-term.


Speed, security and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. In our testing, we were impressed by its fast connection times and by its ability to access more than 3,000 services in 160 locations across 94 countries. A 30-day money-back guarantee is another bonus.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you'd select U.S. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to Sling or another service and watch the game.
