Is there any way this can be seen in the US?

I used to think women's football was crap but after seeing the women's world cup last year I want to see more, especially so I can see Hanna Ljungberg, she's amazing.

Unfortunately, there has never been any TV coverage of the Algarve Cup in North America, to my knowledge, and this year is not expected to be any different.

If there is any TV coverage planned, I'll certainly mention it in this thread.

There's a live play-by-play Match Tracker for the USA games at
http://www.ussoccer.com/

I will link each match score to a match report, if I can find suitable ones.

Official Website for the tournament

Final match results posted above.

Final standings:

1. USA
2. Norway
3. France
4. Italy
5. Sweden
6. China
7. Denmark
8. Portugal
9. Finland
10. Wales
11. Greece
12. North. Ireland

The U.S. women are the first repeat winner at the Algarve Cup -- the top women's ''friendly'' event, played annually on Portugal's southern coast -- since Norway won three in a row in 1996-98.

The Americans have won three Algarve championships in five years, all under April Heinrichs. Only Norway, with four titles, has won the event more often.
