No European club competitions? That's no problem for soccer fans in the middle of June. International fixtures will air live on US TV every day this week beginning on Monday. Perhaps the best part is that all of the Confederations Cup contests that are airing on television will also be available via the ESPN3/Watch ESPN service. That means that those of you who can't escape work will still be able to catch all of the action of that particular tournament.
All times listed below are ET
