[SOCCER ON THE AIR] ABC News anchor Bob Woodruff is among five reporters named to cover the World Cup for ESPN this summer.

Former U.S. women's star Julie Foudy, Jeremy Schaap, John Sutcliffe and ESPN Brazil’s Rubens Pozziround out the team of reporters who will appear on ESPN, ESPN2 and ABC during pre-game, halftime and post-game shows, as well as on SportsCenter, ESPN FC and World Cup-themed news and information programs.

Woodruff was seriously injured covering the Iraq War in 2006, but he recovered and won the Peabody Award the next year for his reporting on injured veterans.

Woodruff, working primarily with ESPN’s World Cup production team in his first FIFA World Cup assignment, will cover cultural and social stories, focusing on the impact of the quadrennial event on South America’s most populous and largest economy.

Schaap will again cover the USA, beginning with the training camp in mid-May through the completion of the World Cup, while Foudy will serve as general assignment reporter.
 
Sutcliffe, ESPN’s Mexico-based journalist for soccer, football and golf, will report on the Mexican national team, while Pozzi will be focusing primarily on the Brazilian national team.

“Our reporter group is truly unparalleled for any sporting event. With Bob, Jeremy and Julie, we have three of the very finest reporters in the business,” said Jed Drake, ESPN Senior Vice President and Executive Producer. “Add John Sutcliffe and Rubens Pozzi, who will cover the Mexican national team and Brazilian national team, respectively, and we are more than ready to take on the important stories of this World Cup in Brazil that will need to be told.”

    Could you explain, please? Is that a way of saying he died? (Sorry if I'm dumb/naïve.)
