NEW YORK (AP) The United States’ second-round win over Colombia was the second-most-watched match of this Women’s World Cup on U.S. television.
The Americans’ 2-0 victory Monday night was seen by 4.7 million people on Fox Sports 1, the network said Tuesday. It trailed only the U.S. group-stage win over Nigeria on June 16, which averaged 5 million viewers on Fox. The round-of-16 game was the highest-viewed soccer match on U.S. cable television since last year’s men’s World Cup.
In addition, Fox said the game had more than 120,000 unique streams on its Fox Sports Go app.
