MOST COMMENTED

[TELEVISION GUIDE] Fox Soccer has received special clearance to air Friday's Everton-Fulham game featuring Landon Donovan (and Tim Howard) against Clint Dempsey in the fourth round of the FA Cup, live at 3 p.m. ET. JP Dellacamera and Eric Wynalda will serve as play-by-play and analyst, marking the first time Americans have called an FA Cup match on FSC. The match is not being shown live anywhere else.

After consultation with the FA, Everton gave permission for Fox to air the game in the United States. The Toffees have a long tradition of having American players, including Brian McBride and Joe-Max Moore. (Preki was not yet a U.S. citizen when he played at Goodison Park in the early 1990s.)

"We are aware that there is significant interest in this game in America, not least because of some of the personalities involved," an Everton spokesperson said. "We are delighted that Everton fans, and football fans in general, will be able to enjoy what will hopefully be an exciting game in this great competition."

    Please, not Dellacamera. No, no, no.
