Away from home and don’t have TV satellite to pick up your national or local football matches. Worry not! The internet has a solution, as always, the lifeline of any Expat .
I found a lovely site where you can watch all the highlights of the exciting Copa del Rey matches
2011-02-02 Almeria – Barcelona 0-3
Copa Del Rey: Almeria Barcelona Highlights
However, Expats you can pour over football highlights from around the world. The Germans can see their beloved Bundesliga. (Deutschland über alles, perhaps). The crazy Brits who think of Football before food or beer (well, maybe?) can argue late into the night about the Champions League and English Premier League (EPL).
There is more. Ladies Football where I’m not sure whether the men will admit it, but I’ve seen the men watching these matches (or the legs) with amusement but also amazement at the little women’s skills.
It seems to covers most countries around the world and loads of South American matches too:- !
2011-02-02 Besiktas – Gaziantep BB 5-0

I didn’t even know that Turkish played football so seriously. I mean what would I know, I am only a woman.

Another brilliant feature of this site is they update Live Score every two minutes
