The one game involving the United States during the first week of competition will air on ESPN on Monday, and will be called on TV by Ian Darke and Taylor Twellman. Darke will be calling games on five of the first eight days of the World Cup, including Thursday’s Brazil-Croatia opener on ESPN. J.P.
