NEW YORK -- The United States' win over Japan in the Women's World Cup final was the most viewed soccer game in the history of American television.
The 5-2 victory Sunday gave the Americans a record third title.
The game was seen by 26.7 million viewers. Fox said Monday its English-language coverage was seen by an average of 25.4 million and NBC's Telemundo said its telecast averaged 1.27 million.
Viewership topped the previous mark of 26.5 million set when Germany beat Argentina in last year's men's World Cup final. That was seen by 17.3 million on ABC and 9.2 million on Spanish-language Univision.
