ESPN2 Adds Seattle Sounders FC-LA Galaxy Independence Day Match
U.S. National Team Stars Landon Donovan and Edson Buddle Expected to Return to MLS Play Sunday at 10:30 p.m. ET
With the excitement surrounding the 2010 FIFA World Cup, ESPN2 has added this weekend’s Seattle Sounders FC vs. LA Galaxy match to its Major League Soccer schedule for Sunday, July 4, at 10:30 p.m. ET / 7:30 p.m. PT. Galaxy stars Landon Donovan and Edson Buddle are expected to return to MLS for the first time since leading the U.S. Men’s National Team to a first place Group C finish and an appearance in the Round of 16 in South Africa.
Glenn Davis and Kyle Martino will call the Sounders FC-Galaxy match on ESPN2 and ESPN2 HD (simulcast on ESPN3.com) from The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. The Independence Day match will also be joined in progress on ESPN Deportes following the Sunday Night Baseball game.
Donovan and Buddle are the top offensive threats for the Galaxy (10-1-3), who occupy first place in the MLS Western Conference. Donovan, who netted three goals for the U.S. team in South Africa, is the league-leader in assists, while Buddle is MLS’s leading scorer.
ESPN’s presentation of the 15th season of Major League Soccer continues all summer with MLS Game of the Week on most Thursday nights, and the Manchester United vs. MLS All-Stars match later this month (Wednesday, July 28 at 8:30 p.m.) from Reliant Stadium in Houston.
