Turkiye vs. Brazil Will Be Live on American TV

Turkiye vs. Brazil Will Be Live on American TV
By Nathan L. Redd

When Turkiye takes the pitch against Brazil on Tuesday, they'll make a rare appearance on live television in the United States. It was announced on Friday that Fox Soccer Channel will carry the game live. Gametime is 2:00 PM EST in the U.S. Fox Soccer Channel will also re-air the game at 11 PM EST on Tuesday evening, and again later in the week.

The game marks Turkiye's first appearance on live television in the U.S. in over a year, although FSC has recently replayed a classic Turkiye vs. England game from 2001 and the Fenerbahce vs. AC Milan UEFA Champions League game from 2005. The game was supposed to be a measuring stick for Turkiye after Saturday's match vs. Bosnia Herzegovina, but Bosnia prevailed on a last-minute goal sending the Turks home with a shocking loss. Turkiye, under the helm of Manager Fatih Terim, will now look to make crucial changes to get the Milli Takim back on track.

Game: Turkiye vs. Brazil
When: Tuesday, June 5
Time: 2:00 PM EST (U.S.)
Where: Dortmund, Germany
TV: Fox Soccer Channel (U.S.)
