It's the final nobody saw coming. Going into the FIBA World Cup, for most experts it was a case of Team USA vs who? in the final. And the "who" was expected to be Serbia. But in the end, those two powerhouse sides were left to battle it out for the minor placings. It was Spain, Argentina, France and Australia muscling their way into the top four.

Sadly, for Australia, the Boomers suffered a heartbreaking extra time loss to Span in the semi-finals. The side will now play France for the bronze medal play-off, a rematch of a group stage game the Boomers won. You can catch that game at 5.50pm AEST on 15 September, and we have a full guide to Australia vs France here.

Spain vs Argentina FIBA World Cup final preview

Regardless of what pundits expected going into the FIBA World Cup, both Spain and Argentina have got to the final on merit. While it's true neither team ended up having to get past Team USA, the American powerhouse has been far from formidable of late.

Spain and Argentina are evenly matched, and while the European side is the better ranked of the two, its FIBA World Cup campaign has been the more torrid. The vast majority of Spain's matches have been won by only a handful of baskets. Argentina, on the other hand, has been super consistent, relying on strong defence to keep opposition to low scores for some relatively comfortable victories.

Spain will be looking for big games from their tournament's best, Ricky Rubio and Marc Gasol. Whereas Argentina will be hoping Luis Scola, Facundo Campazzo and Patricio Garino can continue to sink threes from waaayyyy downtown.

How to watch Spain vs Argentina live in Australia

Like every match before it, the two best ways to watch matches from the FIBA World Cup are through Foxtel or Kayo Sports. Those of you who already have a Foxtel IQ (the set-top box experience) or Foxtel Now (the streaming app service) subscription can add the Sports pack and enjoy the World Cup Final. On both services, it will cost you $29 and you'll get access for a month.

However, Kayo Sports is the more compelling option. If you have a mobile phone number and a credit card, you can sign up and start watching in minutes. Plus, if you use this 14-day free trial, you can watch the Spain vs Argentina FIBA World Cup final – as well as the Boomers bronze medal play-off and replays of previous games – without spending a cent.

Kayo Sports is a dedicated sports streaming app. It takes all the best content from Foxtel (over 50 sports live and on demand), and delivers it through its own standalone experience. Because it is sport focused, it comes with a stack of great features made specifically for armchair coaches, including SplitView (four sports at once on one screen), Interactive Stats, highlight Minis packages, gameday hub pages, a Key Moments timeline so you can jump to the best bits, choose your own camera, picture-in-picture mode and more. Our full review goes deeper into all the details.

The service works a treat and at $25 a month is a far cheaper option than Foxtel if you only want sport. Kayo Sports can be accessed on PC and Mac via a browser or on iOS or Android smartphones and tablets through an app. You can also watch Kayo Sports on TV using ChromeCast, Apple TV, Android TV or Telstra TV.
