June 24/25: What to watch, where to go

SUNDAY, JUNE 24

  • TELEVISION

2012 EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP

England vs. Italy

ESPN and ESPN Deportes, 11:30 a.m.

England hasn't exactly impressed, but it has gleaned results, won its group and is champing for a showdown with old rival Germany in the semifinals. Wayne Rooney's presence makes anything possible, and there are some young attackers worth watching, too. Italy is Italy: always around, always dangerous. Replay: ESPN Deportes, 3 p.m.

MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER

Seattle Sounders at Portland Timbers

ESPN and ESPN Deportes, 2 p.m.

MLS's longest-serving, most heated and most colorful rivalry is renewed in the Rose City, where hatred -- not just extreme dislike -- for the Sounders is a birthright. Portland's four-game unbeaten streak ended with a loss last weekend to the Galaxy, and Seattle is slumping, winless in its last six league matches. Replay: ESPN Deportes, 10:30 p.m.

Brazilian Brasileirão

Cruzeiro at Vasco da Gama, ESPN Deportes, 6 a.m.

Palmeiras at Corinthians, GolTV, 1 and 6 p.m. and midnight

Argentine Premier Division

Boca Juniors at All Boys, GolTV, 11 a.m., 4 and 8 p.m.

NATIONAL PREMIER SOCCER LEAGUE

FC Santa Clarita at Fullerton Rangers

Santa Ana Stadium, 5:30 p.m.

The biggest game of the year in the fourth-division league's Western Division South Conference, with second place -- and a playoff berth -- likely on the line. Santa Clarita has Fullerton by a point and won the first meeting.

Women's Premier Soccer League

Beach FC at L.A. Vikings, Home Depot Center Field 5 (Carson), 4 p.m.
