What 2 Watch – 7/23/17 – Women’s Euro, MLS, ICC, Gold Cup

Sunday’s slate of soccer action is very similar to Saturday’s, but the intriguing matchups came all the same.

Be sure to stay tuned to our Twitter (@wft_podcast) for live commentary, thoughts and analysis on tons of games throughout the season. Each matchup links to Live Soccer TV’s listings for these matchups in the USA and around the world.

*All times Eastern Standard Time

2:45 p.m. – UEFA Women’s European Championship Group D Day 2 – England vs Spain – Rat Verlegh Stadion, Breda

England currently holds the goal difference tiebreaker between the two teams after a convincing opening 6-0 victory against Scotland. The second round tie between the two could ultimately decide who finishes as group winners in Group D.

5:00 p.m. – International Champions Cup USA – Real Madrid vs Manchester United – Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara

Real Madrid opens their 2017 ICC campaign with a marquee match against Man U at the home of the San Francisco 49ers. Manchester United is coming off of an opening win in the ICC against Manchester City. United has won all three preseason contests they have played in thus far (L.A. Galaxy, Real Salt Lake, Man City). United can also take a temporary lead for first place in the USA standings (if you think that matters) following PSG’s 4-2 loss to Tottenham.

6:30 p.m. – MLS – Vancouver Whitecaps vs Portland Timbers – BC Place, Vancouver

A rather intriguing MLS contest will take place on national TV as the Whitecaps and Timbers are locked in at 4th and 5th in the West with 27 points. Thanks to the bizarre MLS schedule, Vancouver has a whopping three games in hand on Portland. Vancouver can knock on the door for top in the West if they secure maximum points on the games to be made up and they will be looking to keep that prospect going at BC Place.

9:00 p.m. – CONCACAF Gold Cup – Mexico vs Jamaica – Rose Bowl, Pasadena

Jamaica can look to keep their momentum over the United States going in the Final, or Mexico will meet the Americans in an important match in Santa Clara. Anything less than a Finals appearance by Mexico will be deemed as a failure, and Juan Carlos Osorio’s men will have to put in a good performance against a dangerous Jamaican side.
