There is a straightforward schedule on the official FIFA site, but Yahoo! Sports Singapore has a more useful schedule that links to the latest scores, team news and group table standings.

The English news sites, including BBC, The Guardian and The Telegraph also have previews, stats, team guides, live scores and most importantly live text commentaries for the times you’re heading out or home.

Can’t wait for the World Cup 2014 to start? ESPN FC (Soccernet) runs daily updates to recap 2010 and preview 2014. And this is probably when you read The New Paper most in the past four years.
