Every week seems to bring a new soccer record for ESPN, as the USA v. Algeria World Cup match was the most viewed soccer game ever for ESPN.

Here are the ratings for all the matches carried on ESPN and ESPN2 from June 21-27.

Note: The viewership average is for the entire telecast (including pre-game) as measured by Nielsen, not just the "game window" often referred to in network press releases. Some of these airings are repeats, note the telecast times.
