The summer of international soccer continues this weekend, as Copa America joins the FIFA U-17 World Cup and FIFA Women's World Cup among the on-going international tournaments.

Host Argentina and defending champion Brazil open their Copa America campaigns on Friday and Sunday against Bolivia and Venezuela, respectively.

Over in Germany, the U.S. women's national team looks to make more headway in reaching the knockout stage of the Women's World Cup by taking on Colombia for the first time ever in its second Group C game on Saturday.

There are plenty of quality MLS matches on the slate as well, as new-look D.C. United and the Philadelphia Union renew their regional rivalry, FC Dallas and Columbus meet in a battle of in-form teams and New York and San Jose square off in a rematch from the 2010 postseason.

    Any word on if Gulati is really making some kind of announcement today?

  2. Cereal Box says:

    I hope so, though I’ve heard from reports in Ireland it’s about BB, however I’ll have to say tuned to find out more, maybe the announcement is either later tonight or tomorrow.

  3. Cereal Box says:

    Best of Luck to the Women’s team (at least they can paly creative soccer).

  5. Ron says:

    Where is Friday Night game, MLS???

  6. Alex G says:

    stupid announcement, fire him and BB, it`s just a letter

  7. baquito alyeska says:

    Dammit, how am I supposed to DVR a youtube stream…

  8. ben says:

    you obviously have a loose definition of the term ‘creative’.

  9. Cabrito says:

    Ives, I was wondering where your “Top 10 Matches to Watch List” was. However, I looked at the list above of matches this weekend and I now know why.

  10. Cabrito says:

    I can’t wactch some of those WWC games for more than 5 minutes. Brutal.

  11. ben says:

    it’s some pretty bad soccer for the most part.

  12. Pie says:

    disagree…sometimes the women’s game seem more pure to me. The NZL/ENG game was exciting.

  13. not a hater says:

    Then don’t watch it! Personally I find it much more enjoyable than that horrible U17 tournament which doesn’t resemble soccer. FIFA should not have an official tournament for kids that young — it is obviously to sell players.

  14. Invicto says:

    The San Jose game would have been just right at 7:30 PT

  15. Invicto says:

    The U17 has some major talent also…You peeps are crazy

  16. Tainted Meat says:

    Turns out it was about the Belgium friendly.

    (False Fire Alarm. Everyone back to their rooms….nothing to see here!)

  17. Tainted Meat says:

    what makes it more pure?

    I used to hear that about the WNBA, too, now those same people aren’t even watching that league.

    Pure = polite way of saying lower skill level & more of an even playing-field?

    ^^ Kinda lame if thats the definition.
