6-23-09: Big Summer o' Soccer

It is shaping up to be a really nice summer for soccer fans in the U.S. We still have the Confederations Cup going strong, with the U.S. playing Spain tomorrow (2:30PM ET on ESPN2) and the tournament final set for Sunday. Next up for the U.S. squad is the CONCACAF Gold Cup in July.

But I'm looking forward to a special treat: the World Football Challenge. They may mostly be in "pre-season" mode, but six big teams are playing here in the U.S., and I'm very tempted to check out the AC Milan vs. Inter Milan matchup in Foxborough on July 26th.

Here's the schedule of matches and TV broadcasts for that:

July 19, 2009, 19:00 EST
Club América  v  Inter Milan

July 21, 2009, 23:00 EST
