Australia is playing its second, and arguably most important, group stage match at World Cup 2022 at 9pm on Saturday.

It’s one of the few times a Socceroos World Cup match is scheduled at a convenient hour for Australian audiences and venues across the country will be welcoming fans for the key fixture.

The Socceroos will need to defeat Tunisia at Donha’s Al Janoub stadium, if they are to find a way out of the group stage for the first time since 2006.

Here’s where you can watch all the action:
