This Weekend’s Soccer on TV

CONCACAF's two places in the women's soccer tournament at this summer's Olympics will be determined Friday night, as the U.S. women look to maintain their stretch of dominance and clinch a place in London with a win over Costa Rica. Canada and Mexico duel it out in the nightcap at BC Place, where one of the region's powers will end up missing out on the summer festivities.

FA Cup action dominates the slate in England, with Liverpool-Manchester United and Arsenal-Aston Villa being among the more attention-grabbing games of the weekend. The Queens Park Rangers-Chelsea bout will also be one to watch, as it pits Anton Ferdinand against John Terry for the first time since their incident that resulted in the latter being criminally charged with racial abuse.

Italy's top match of the weekend involves two top-three teams, as Juventus and Udinese tangle with major Serie A implications on the line. Real Madrid and Barcelona return to league action in Spain after their heated Copa del Rey encounter, and highlighting the action in Mexico, the American contingent at Tijuana goes up against Herculez Gomez and Santos Laguna.

    I wish GolTV showing Hoffenheim this week, Gyau may finally be joining Johnson and Williams on the first team.

  2. Brad Friedel says:

    I could be wrong but I think the match is on ESPN3.

  3. Brad Friedel says:

    Christopher Walken wants more cowbell but I could go for some more Alex Morgan, please

  4. ... says:

    Goooooooool de Tobin Heath! Finished the rebound from a header off a corner kick. 16th minute, 1-0.

  5. Yoreau Snaub says:

    I am satisfied by Costa Rica’s #19 for now

  6. Yoreau Snaub says:

    One of the Costa Ricans just straight up slapped Cheney across the face after a tussle in the midfield and nothing from the ref (though a free-kick was awarded)

  7. RM says:

    anybody else having trouble signing in and/or registering on the concacaf website? It won’t accept my email address when i register…..

  8. Donny says:

    Expect to turn down the volume if watching this USA Costa Rica game. Canadian color team–>>>HORRIBLE

  9. ... says:

    When you’re signing in, although the box says “e-mail address” they do NOT want your e-mail address, they actually want your username.

    I don’t know about registering, though. I didn’t have a problem with that when I signed up.

  10. OldPuebloFC says:

    I’ve got sound but no picture on concacaf tv. Anyone else having that problem??

  11. OldPuebloFC says:

    And nevermind. Started to work.

  12. beachbum says:

    Leroux (sp) might do well in this physical game

  13. beachbum says:

    ever since that hard foul early on Lloyd, she’s not been in there. give Costa Rica credit.

  14. Yoreau Snaub says:

    Morgan in for Tobin Heath, who, despite scoring the goal, has provided little life in drawing away attention from Abby Wambach

  15. beachbum says:

    agree, hard to remember another positive touch from her

  16. ... says:

    Carli Lloyd, 2-0! 72nd minute.

  17. Yoreau Snaub says:

    And goooooooooal de Carli Lloyd! A Wambach shot is cleared but everyone forgets about Lloyd waiting on the outside of the penalty box, and she screams it right past 5 or 6 CR defenders who look on helplessly. USA 2-0 CRC

  18. beachbum says:

    making plays all over the field now, too. Good for her after that foul.

  19. Roberto says:

    I hate US womens soccer team … I hate women playing soccer …what a turn off!!
    There I said it!!

  20. Matt says:

    Go live in a 3rd world country where being a macho moron is acceptable
