No less than 11 networks will carry World Cup 2014 qualifying matches on Friday: four ESPN networks, three Univision networks and two Fox and beIN Sport networks.

In addition, ESPN3 will carry 19 other games exclusively online, while two other will air exclusively on beIN Sport Play.

The USA-Jamaica game in Kansas City will air on ESPN, beginning with pre-game coverage at 6 p.m. ET. Kickoff is scheduled for approximately 6:38 p.m. ET. (Friday college football at 9 p.m. ET necessitated the early kickoff.)

Fans wishing to watch Mexico-Panama in Mexico City afterwards will have the choice of three networks: ESPN News, UniMas and Univision Deportes (9:15 pm ET).

World Cup qualifying coverage continues through the weekend with four African qualifiers (two Saturday and two Sunday) on BeIN Sport and beIN Sport en Espanol.

As with the other road U.S. matches except the game at Mexico, its game at Panama on Tuesday will air on beIN Sport. Coverage at 9:30 p.m. ET will conclude a big day of qualifying play on beIN Sport that also includes Ghana-Egypt (noon ET) and Uruguay-Argentina (7:20 p.m. ET).
