2007 U-20 World Cup Schedule

The three-week U-20 tournament kicks off this Saturday, when 24 nations will compete to see who is the best in the under-20 world. There are six groups of 4. The top two of each group will advance, as will the four best third place teams.

As far as TV viewing, I've tried to get all the information correct but it is a bit scattered. ESPNU (U) and ESPN360 (360) have all of these games, except for the final, however are only available in a few markets in the US. The final will air on ESPN2.
Fox Sports en Espanol (FSE) as well as Galavision (G) and TeleFutura (T) will offer Spanish coverage of most of the games, however a number of the FSE games will be tape delayed.

Here is the full schedule. All time Eastern (UTC -5 hours) TV coverage key:

Apparently, FIFA is also streaming all of the games live via their site. Looks like you have to use Internet Exploder on a Windows box though. Good thing my Mac & Linux only household gets ESPNU.
