A couple of nights ago, I got home from a meeting around 10 p.m. and all of the hockey games were over and I could care less about the NBA playoffs, so I was searching for something to watch. After searching around the channels, I switched over to on demand and found ESPN on Demand and was able to watch the England v.s Argentia Round of 16 game from the 1998 World Cup in France.
It was fun watching it, from seeing a young and healthy Michael Owen to seeing a young and very talented Juan Sebastian Veron pulling the strings in the Argentina midfield. But the one thing that will also be remember about the game was the red card David Beckham recieved for the kickout on Diego Simone. The incident spurn one England newspaper to run the front page headline of ""10 Brave Lions, 1 Silly Boy.''
ESPN on Demand World Cup sections features a variety of different games including the ""Hand of God'' goal game, USA vs. Mexico in the Round of 16 in 2002, USA vs Columbia from the 1994 World Cup and features on players such as Aaron Lennon. This feature will give newcomers to the beatful game a crash course on some of the great game that have been played in past World Cups.
The last time EPSN did the World Cup they struggled with all aspects of it from announcers to pregame show to prdocution, but this time it has a been a different story. They have done a great job from being over great announcers to showing classic game On Demand. They have done a great job and they should be applauded.
