FIFA (International Federation of Association Football) is the governing body of soccer for the entire world, and they certainly put their hat in the ring for this World Cup.

This covers the World Cup, but just with not as many features as those mentioned above. Although it gives a more in-depth look at the locations of tournament, it is a more limited app overall.
ESPN FC Soccer & World Cup
Being the world’s biggest and greatest sports company, ESPN was destined to get in on the action for this World Cup.
