NEW YORK (AP) - With an estimated 26.5 million viewers, Sunday's World Cup final stands as the most-watched soccer game in U.S. history.

The Nielsen company said Monday that 17.3 million people watched Germany beat Argentina 1-0 on ABC. An additional 9.2 million tuned in to the game on the Spanish-language Univision network.

That tops the 24.7 million who watched the U.S.-Portugal match earlier in the tournament, and the same number of people who saw the 2010 World Cup final between the Netherlands and Spain.

Between well-played games and a time zone compatible with U.S. viewing, both networks were up significantly throughout the tournament from four years ago.
