WASHINGTON, June 23 (Xinhua) -- A record American viewers watched the World Cup group match between the United States and Portugal, cable sports network ESPN said on Monday.

The Group G second round match, ended 2-2 on Sunday, drew 18.2 million viewers to become "the most-viewed soccer match in the United States ever" -- and the biggest event on ESPN that wasn't professional or college American football.

The previous record came from the 1999 Women's World Cup final between the United States and China that attracted nearly 18 million Americans to sit in front of their TV sets, ESPN said.
