SUNDAY, JULY 10
FIFA WOMEN'S WORLD CUP
United States vs. Brazil
ESPN, 8 a.m.
Much hand-wringing over the U.S.'s loss to Sweden in its group finale, and it certainly looks like bad luck following Germany's shock loss to Japan in Saturday's quarterfinals. Brazil has speed and skill -- and Marta -- but the Americans have dominated the series, the semifinal loss four years ago aside. The victor gets France in the semifinals.
Sweden vs. Australia, ESPN, 11 a.m.
Women's Professional Soccer
Atlanta Beat at Boston Breakers, Fox Soccer Channel, 3 p.m.
Colombia vs. Bolivia
TeleFutura (KFTR/Channel 46), noon
The Colombians have done well to surge to the front in Group A while scoring just once in two games -- and joining the Bolivians in holding host/title favorite Argentina to a scoreless draw. A win here guarantees them the top spot.
MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER
Seattle Sounders at Portland Timbers
ESPN, 1 p.m.
There is no MLS team more despised than the Seattle Sounders are in Portland, where Timbers fans have particular animosity for forward Roger Levesque, product of an incident seven years ago when the teams played in the second division. Expect the most intense atmosphere MLS has ever seen. The All-Star First XI will be announced at halftime. Replay: ESPN Deportes, 2 p.m.
Brazlian Brasileirão Petrobras
Flamengo at Fluminense, GolTV, noon and 7 p.m.
FIFA U-17 WORLD CUP
Uruguay at Mexico
ESPNU and Galavision, 3:30 p.m.
Mexico's rally to beat Germany in the semifinals -- with Julio Gomez's 90th-minute bicycle kick delivering the victory -- is among the most amazing finishes in this sport's history. One more victory, and El Tri will win the youngest World Cup for the second time in six years.
Third place: Brazil vs. Germany, ESPNU, 1 p.m.
ON LOCAL FIELDS
PREMIER DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE
Fresno Fuego at Orange County Blue Star
Concordia University (Irvine), 5 p.m.
The undefeated Fuego can take a huge step toward the Southwest Division title with a victory over resurgent Blue Star, which has to win to keep its feeble playoff hopes going.
WOMEN'S PREMIER SOCCER LEAGUE
Orange County Waves at L.A. Premier FC
La Cañada High School (La Cañada Flintridge), 6 p.m.
The Waves are in a tight battle with the San Diego SeaLions for the top spot in the Pacific-South Division, and a victory in La Cañada -- always a tough venue in the WPSL -- will go a long way.
MONDAY, JULY 11
Costa Rica at Argentina
Univision (KMEX/Channel 34), noon
Why is Lionel Messi so great with Barcelona and so ineffective with Argentina? It perplexes Argentines, who expected something special at Copa America and have instead watched the home team score once in two draws. Another tie could finish them off in the group stage of South America's nations championship.
