Happy Fourth! Celebrate with four soccer matches

Happy Fourth of July.

The Sounders train locally this morning before heading up to Canada, where the Fourth of July is merely the day between the third and the fifth. I'll file some notes after that session.

Meanwhile, the day is loaded with soccer on TV, including two World Cup quarterfinal matches, and two nationally televised MLS matches:

9 a.m. Germany-France on ESPN2.

1 p.m. Brazil-Columbia on ESPN.

5:30 p.m. Houston-New York on NBCSN.

8 p.m. Los Angeles-Portland on NBCSN.
