While I’m not a rabid soccer (football) fan I enjoy following the various soccer teams and the 2014 World Cup is no exception. The tournament is scheduled to kick off tomorrow in Brazil, although there’s been some dissent by the country’s citizens around the cost of the event. The United States along with Germany (ranked #1), Portugal, and Ghana are playing in Group G which has been referred to by many as the Group of Death.
Portugal faced off against Ireland this past week at Metlife Stadium in New Jersey and while I didn’t get an opportunity to attend the match I read that Cristiano Ronaldo looked very good in that game against the Irish. There’s also been a lot of debate around Jurgen Klinsmann cutting Landon Donovan from the US team. I’m not sure who will have the last word but today we learned that Landon Donovan will be a commentator for EPSN.
Watching online? Here in the United States you can watch all the games online via the WatchESPN or WatchABC website or mobile apps, you’ll need to be a cable subscriber to watch the games from EPSN or ABC.
Who will you be cheering for?
