SAO PAULO - The United States' 1-0 loss to Germany was the second-highest rated men's World Cup match on ESPN's networks despite the noon EDT kickoff.

The game received a 6.7 rating on ESPN and was seen by 10.77 million viewers, ESPN said Friday. Viewers peaked at 12.06 million during the final half hour.

With the early start for Thursday's game against Germany, the match was seen by a record 1.05 million on the WatchESPN app.
