Today's U.S. match against Turkey will have Ian Darke and Taylor Twellman in the booth, a packed Red Bull Arena and all of ESPN's muscle behind it.

The United States' Send-Off Series continues today when the Americans host Turkey at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, NJ. Jurgen Klinsmann's squad beat Azerbaijan 2-0 on Tuesday to kick-off the three-match pre-World Cup friendlies, but it wasn't the most impressive of showings and it came without Clint Dempsey so all eyes will be on them today as they look to make some strides 15 days before their World Cup opener against Ghana.

Today's contest should be the best show ESPN puts on before the World Cup. The team was on Good Morning America -- on ABC, but a Disney network --, the Worldwide Leader did an episode of ESPNFC from the fan fest in Times Square on Friday and they're going to have a packed soccer-specific stadium to show off tomorrow. ESPN also had the luxury of no major competition, with the French Open and women's college softball the only other sports on. From a pure TV perspective, this is the biggest match of the Send-Off Series.

The match kicks off at 2 p.m. ET, but pre-game will begin a half-hour earlier. It will all be on ESPN2 and will feature not just Ian Darke and Taylor Twellman on the call, but an on-site set for pre-game, halftime and post-game.

Time: 2 p.m. ET

Venue: Red Bull Arena, Harrison, NJ

TV: ESPN2, Univision

Streaming: Watch ESPN
