The USA vs. England World Cup match was broadcast live to soccer (spelled “football” in British English) fans around the world via blogs like the Huffington Post, on the Washington Post’s site live chat during the stream was encouraged, and through partnerships with ESPN and Univision in the US (and 8 other stations around the world) Facebook users could watch and chat through dedicated apps and social network extensions, and Twitter even has a dedicated page providing a tweet by tweet view of the games. Verizon rolled out their V CAST service to Android phone users in time to catch the action on their mobile phones, and Sprint users – including EVO 4G owners, could tune in on Sprint TV.
But if you’re hoping to get a first hand tweet or update from anyone directly on the pitch, you may be out of luck.

The World Cup has long been considered a family affair and actions by some players in the past week have not necessarily been family friendly.
