ESPN-Thumb

The number of weeks between us and this year's World Cup are wilting away, which makes now the time to get prepared. Snag some tickets to Brazil if you can, or, more practically, go snatch up the new Android App ESPN has just released for keeping tags on all of the goings-on. This way you don't even have to watch the games to know who's kicking whose butts, and how hard.

ESPN1 ESPN2 ESPN3

People living in the US can use the app to view videos of goals and other key moments shortly after they happen. The software will also contain ESPN TV clips containing commentary from sports analysts and talking heads to fill those quiet moments when you're not getting your soccer fix. All users can set up alerts and track teams for somewhat of a customized experience.

Non-soccer fans, you have until June 12th before World Cup mania kicks in. You, too, should prepare yourself. If you find yourself surrounded by fans, hitting up the link below might just be all you need to fake your way through the uncomfortable conversations you're about to have.

    • Pistol

      Lol really hoping Atleti can't do it. Though if they do, they'd be deserved winners! Hala Madrid

    • DemoManMLS

      Not if Ronaldo and Real Madrid has anything to say about it.

    Force Close soccer.

    Any app with FC in the name has got to suck hahaha

    • Lirodon

      FC usually means "Football Club", which is used often in team names (even by a number of North American teams. Though a few subvert this and use SC.)

    Soccer does not exist! The real name is Football

    • RiTCHiE

      hahah i was about to say that also. But them retards in america think the whole world is america. In america they have football what th4y play with their hands. Americans are good at stealing sports and rename it but we all know whzat the real footb all is :)

      Fun Fact: ESPN is an AMERICAN sports media company. At the and of the day, it's called soccer in the US.

        At the end of the day, the world does not give a f***k. Now lets watch some football. The kind that actually has an audience in more than one country.

    • http://bertelking.com/ Bertel King, Jr.

      In the future, I shall rename all misspelled soccer apps to football. Readers can figure it out in the Play Store on their own.

      American readers: We know you don't watch soccer, so who cares right?

      • DemoManMLS

        No offense but this American loves football/fútbol/soccer. Then again I'm in the minority it seems like in this country.

  • RiTCHiE

    Soccer = Football in the rest of the world. its only been called soccer in the USA. And usa aint the world.

  • scuttlefield

    Apparently not N10 compatible. Boo!

    Not a fan of that sport, but that's a nice holo-fied app.

    "all you need to fake your way through the uncomfortable conversations" lol, this reminds me of that guy on The IT Crowd when he pretended to be a football/soccer fan.

  • Jordan Long

    calling it a football app creates confusion. Leave it at soccer or maybe futbol.

  • Henrique Persechini

    so, what's the difference from this app to the regular ESPN FC app?

  • Technology1

    That's why you guys need one of those advance Android TV Quad Core 4.2/4.3/4.4 Boxes, discussed over at the NEW Google Android/Nexus TV Forum found HERE GOOGLE ANDROID/NEXUS TV XBMC CHROMECAST ! These Android TV boxes allow the user to cast or play just about all Android apps, like the new updated WatchESPN app on to your giant screen TV! Another thing with these advance Android TV boxes, you can install the "Beyond XBMC " app, that carries ALL sports events on the planet! The Amazon Fire TV doesn't have these features yet!

    Why does the app want access to my phone calls? :-(

  • cnordvik

    Or just download FotMob which this app has clearly been inspired by. Just compare the menu of FotMob and ESPN... https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mobilefootie.wc2010

    Nice app. There are so many apps that are coming through with the World Cup being just a couple of weeks ahead. There is another app that I came across and really found it cool. The app showcases all the match schedules & results. And the best part is that one can navigate through the matches by team, venue or dates. Really cool! Check it out at:
