There is something for everyone this weekend, and given the weather forecast, it’s good we have these choices. So let’s dig into it… and remember, all of these games can be found in my Soccer on TV calendar.
Opening Friday is the CONCACAF U17 Championships that will determine the representatives at the World Cup in India in October. The US is captained by Josh Sargent (O’Fallon, MO) who matriculated at St. Dominic and St. Louis Scott Gallagher before moving to the U17 Residency program in January 2016. All of the games can be seen on either the CONCACAF Facebook page (in English, link below) or on Univision (Spanish). The US schedule is below.

Saturday is a cornucopia of opportunity and plenty of reasons to stay inside during any rain we receive.
The Euro Women’s Final first leg is Saturday morning and we get to see it thanks to ESPN3. What makes it interesting is that it’s also Carli Lloyd vs Alex Morgan! 8:00 am.
While we are discussing Women’s Soccer (#WoSo) Saturday continues the weekly NWSL broadcast on Lifetime TV, this week featuring the Orlando Pride v Washington Spirit. 3:00 pm.
