Women’s World Cup Underway
The 2007 FIFA Women’s World Cup began this morning with Germany crushing Argentina.
The U.S. Women begin play at 1:55 a.m. Tuesday so set your TiVo. Coach Greg Ryan believes the first game against North Korea will be his team’s toughest test in group play.
Fox Soccer Channel will have a preview that airs at 5 and 8 tonight.
More than 200 countries will watch this year’s tournament, up significantly from the 144 that watched the 2003 version from the U.S.
I’ll have more on the World Cup in Tuesday’s weekly column including news of a second Southern California resident playing in the tournament (Torrance’s Shannon Boxx is a starter for the U.S. of course).
A summary of the U.S. and Mexico games and other Sunday soccer action is here.
