ESPN Getting it Done

Once again, the Worldwide Leader in Sports has come through for U.S. fans. After much effort to work the schedule, the USA-Costa Rica qualifier will be shown live on ESPN on June 3 at 10 p.m. ET.

ESPN also announced the full broadcast for the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup. ESPN and ESPN2 will combine to televise all matches of the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup from June 14-28 And to go one step better, all the matches will be available in High Definition.

ESPN will televise the the match between the United States and 2006 FIFA World Cup champion Italy (June 15, 2:25 p.m. ET), while ESPN2 will carry the match against Brazil (June 18, 9:55 a.m. ET) and Egypt (June 21, 2:25 p.m. ET).

and the list goes on....

If anything, ESPN is the number one thing keeping back the growth of soccer in this country. For every game they show they spend equal, if not greater, time paying pundits to trash on the sport.
