Let’s face it… soccer has been a flop in the United States, especially when compared to, well, the rest of the known world, where it’s more-or-less religion. The country isn’t totally devoid of fans though. Those who do care seem to be pretty hardcore. Luckily for the Americans that do follow “the beautiful game,” the internet offers whatever you need to get your soccer, the real football (just kidding, I’m an NFL fanatic as well), fix.

ESPNsoccernet is the perfect resource if you’re into the usual (English Premier League, La Liga, Italian Serie A, and of course the UEFA Champions League). Goal.com is another staple in any soccer fan’s browser bookmarks, offering coverage of the game worldwide.

Some of the web’s best-kept secrets – if you’re not all about the European game – include BBC’s African football coverage. If Asian soccer is more to your taste, FootballAsia is the place to be. The site is currently being overhauled, but their homepage still links you to Asian soccer’s top competitions. And if features and breaking news aren’t enough for you, myp2p links you to live matches with a few mouse clicks, though you may need to download a few peer-to-peer applications like Sopcast. The myp2p homepage tells you all you need to know.
