Where to watch soccer 12/23/11 to 12/29/11

Where to watch the best soccer games on US television networks, including ESPN, Fox Soccer and Telefutura. All times Eastern.

Soccer News of the Week:

* Liverpool striker Luis Suarez was handed an eight-match ban for racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra during the October 15th match at Anfield. He is appealing the ruling. Chelsea defender John Terry will face criminal charges for a similar offense against QPR’s Anton Ferdinand in October. Terry says he will “fight tooth and nail” to prove his innocence. Racism in soccer has had a high-profile year, especially after FIFA president Sepp Blatter downplayed the issue, suggesting that affected individuals should settle the matter with a post-game handshake.

* The Boxing Day match between Arsenal and Wolverhampton has been postponed to Tuesday, Dec. 27, due to a proposed strike by public transit workers.

* Barcelona trounced Santos 4-0 in the FIFA Club World Cup. The Brazilian side was thoroughly outmatched, despite a few bright moments from star Neymar, in a disappointing game that could’ve easily seen more goals from the Spanish champs.

* AZ Alkmaar goalkeeper Esteban Alvarado received a red card for retaliating against a drunken fan who invaded the pitch and attacked him during a Dutch Cup match vs. Ajax Amsterdam. AZ coach Gertjan Verbeek ordered his team off the field immediately following the incident, and the game was suspended. The Dutch Football Federation later rescinded the card, but no decision has been made yet about how the unfinished match will proceed.
