The USA-Mexico World Cup qualifier on Aug. 12 in Mexico City is going to be broadcast in English. You're just going to have to work a bit harder to see it. Telemundo announced on Monday that it will broadcast the match in Spanish on Telemundo and on English on mun2, an English-language channel geared toward young Latinos in the United States.

What happened to ESPN's bid for the match? According to sources, Telemundo's exorbitant price tag killed the bid. "They set a price they knew nobody would pay," said one source. "It's safe to say they had no intention of selling." One source suggested that the price offered was between three and four times what ESPN was willing to pay.

So where do you get mun2 exactly? If you have DirecTV, mun2 can be found in channel 410 and can be seen as part of the DirecTV Latin Programming package. Don't get that package? If you're dead set on watching the match in English, you may want to consider ordering the Latin Programming package for the month of August and canceling after the match. There is no word yet on who will be calling the game for mun2. If that doesn't work, then you may be forced to either find an English-language feed on the internet or watching the game at a soccer bar.
