Delayed Scoreification

You can watch all the matches of the 2008 Four Nations Tournament on television…if you happen to live in China. As usual, there is no U.S. TV for the Four Nations Tournament, and because the matches take place in the wee hours of the morning for those in the USA, no Matchtracker either. That means fans will have to wait until the result is posted on ussoccer.com, followed soon after by a complete match report. Following the Algarve Cup in March and a hopefully successful run at CONCACAF Olympic qualifying in Mexico in April, the U.S. team will start playing domestic matches this spring. Fans will then be able to see the team in person and on TV, hopefully cheering the team on during its run to the Beijing Olympics and pursuit of the gold medal.

The games are never on TV! :( I don't care if it's in the morning- I would wake up in the middle of the night.

Does anyone know of a 'net feed, stream, or China station broadcasting the games on the net?

Well this sucks!!! I was totally hoping that they would show it on t.v., but I guess not!! Now I just gotta wait longer to see my fav. women's team on t.v., but I guess I can wait. Can't wait to see them play and watch Hope Solo as well as the rest of the team be amazing again!
Much love, Victoria

I would even been willing to watch footage after the game just to see them play. We know they have cameras there because they tape all the great studio 90 stuff. It would be cool if they would just tape the game and air it online, even if its after the fact. We dont even need an announcer. we just want to see them play. Even when they do play in the U.S. they are not always on tv (example mexico series). I just think its unfortunante that so many fans who want to see the matches cant.
