WEEKEND WATCH GUIDE
Copa America: Chile vs. Argentina, 3 p.m. Saturday, beIN Sports. Chile is aiming to be the first team outside Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, and Colombia to win Copa America since 1979. Argentina, led by Lionel Messi and with most of the match’s star power, is the likely winner — even with Chile playing at home.
Women’s World Cup: Germany vs. England, 3 p.m. Saturday, Ch. 9. England probably has more to play for in the third-place game and will want to end the tournament on a high note after its heartbreaking loss to Japan in the semifinals. A win over powerhouse Germany would cement this as England’s best performance.
MLS: San Jose at Portland, 4 p.m., ESPN2. After falling almost to the bottom of the Western Conference, five wins in six games for Portland have the Timbers up to third place. San Jose, riding its own two-game winning streak, is looking to make its own climb up the standings with a result in Portland.
Women’s World Cup: USA vs. Japan, 6 p.m., Ch. 9. Team USA is the current holder of every major tourney crown — including the Olympics gold medal and the Algarve Cup — except the World Cup title, which resides with Japan. It’s been 16 years since the U.S. won the World Cup; it’s favored to do so Sunday.
