The Socceroos World Cup campaign is on the line on Wednesday morning when they take on Peru in the final match of the group stage. This is The Roar’s guide to streaming the match online or watching it on TV.

The match is set to be played at the Fisht Olympic Stadium in Sochi, with kick-off scheduled for 12am (AEST) on Wednesday, June 27.

Australia must beat the Peruvians if they are any chance of progressing through to the Round of 16. After going down by one goal to France in the first round, the Socceroos put in an improved performance in their one-all draw with Denmark.

This time, a draw will not be enough, with the Danes currently sitting three points ahead of Australia in second position.

How to watch the game on TV

If you want to see whether the Socceroos can keep their World Cup hopes alive, you can tune in to the live broadcast on SBS. The free-to-air broadcaster will begin their coverage at 11pm (AEST) as they analyse Australia’s chances of victory in Wednesday’s must-win game.

For the best viewing experience, you can watch the game on SBS in high definition on Channel 30. Otherwise, the match is also being broadcast in standard definition on Channel 31.
