Where to watch the Qatar vs Ecuador World Cup opener in the United Kingdom, Unites States, India and more.

The first match of theFIFA World Cup kicks off with Qatar hosting Ecuador at the Al Bayt Stadium on Sunday. It is the gulf country's first appearance on the biggest stage while the South American nation will be playing in its fourth World Cup.

Qatar have played four friendlies since October and boast a perfect record. They are the reigning Asian champions and it will be a mistake to take them lightly. Making the most of the home conditions, the Maroons will be looking to get three points on the board, with the fixtures thereafter seeing them face Senegal and Netherlands.

Ecuador have progressed to the knockouts just once, in 2006, where they won the first game in the group. They are a tough nut to crack and have had six consecutive clean sheets since June. They have, however, lacked a cutting edge in attack and have scored just twice in the same period. They are only six places above Qatar in the FIFA rankings (44th), which should make for an interesting battle.
