The biggest sporting event the world kicks off tomorrow, so I thought I post a round up of links that will let casual fans, first time followers, or the curious get their World Cup Groove on.
- The official World Cup site – This will be a great resource for photos and scores.
- The Guardian – This English paper has some of the best all around soccer coverage out their. I especially endorse their minute-by-minute match reports for those of you who will be stuck at your desk during some of the games (like me); they’re equally informative and snarky at the same time
- The BBC and Sports Illustrated also have extensive coverage, which I prefer to ESPN’s Soccernet.
- For those looking for more coverage of particular teams, check out the World Cup blog, which has blogger/supporters for every nation.
- If you want to do some trash talking over the Interweb, head on over to BigSoccer.com.
- Kasey Keller, the U.S. keeper, has been providing regular articles at Sportsline.com.
- Clint Dempsey, a U.S. player that many think will have a breakout month, also has his own website.
