"To see" is used when you witness (see) something. You're not 'seeing' intently. You may not even want to see the object. Examples: "I saw the car drive away." "I saw the dog bite the mailman." "To look" is used when you go out of your way to see something. Examples: "I turned to look at the sign." "I looked in the closet for my clothes". "To watch" is used when you are intently 'seeing' something. Examples: "I watch FIFA on TV." "I watched the dog play in the yard."

Watch the FIFA on the TV: you concentrate on the FiFA games, you fix attention on it. "I'm watching FIFA football game on TV. " Look the FIFA on the TV: it's just have a look, glance at it, but not concentrate on it. "Hey, look at the FIFA game on TV, is it Kaka? " See the FIFA on the TV: it's also you see without attention and purpose, just witness it. " I saw the FIFA game is on now."
