While Nielsen was crunching the national numbers for ESPN's coverage of the U.S.-Portugal game, Univision reported its most-viewed telecast involving the U.S. men's national team on Sunday,


Univision and Univision Deportes Network's simulcast of the 2-2 draw averaged 6.5 million viewers on June 22, surpassing the tally of 4.8 million watchers for Sam's Army's 2014 World Cup opening match against Ghana on June 16 by 35%


Halfway through the tourney, Univision's reach has extened to 54 million, eclipsing the mark for all of the 2010 event in South Africa. Its coverage is up 48% overall at this stage.
