World Cup: U.S.-England is a hit for ESPN, Univision
ABC had 12.95 million viewers for Saturday's match, while Univision had 3.8 million viewers. The ESPN ratings made the match the fifth-most-watched soccer game in the U.S., and they were higher than the average number of viewers for the NHL's Stanley Cup finals.
Univision actually beat ESPN in viewership for last Friday's opening game between Mexico and host South Africa.
ESPN had 2.6 million tuned in; Univision had 5.4 million.
