    River vs Roca was shown on TV worldwide. In Australia for example it was shown on the SBS network. It would be great to find out if viewers in Australia got to watch the game in English but we in the USA only had Spanish. I’m guessing it was in English in AUS, maybe a feed from BT Sport in the UK. Shame on the US media for not providing an English feed for this match, via a SAP for example. Where was Fox Soccer Plus, FS2, ESPN3 etc.?

    Does Fanatiz have English commentary on these live games?

      Spanish-language commentary only. It’s a feed from FOX Deportes.
