Growing up, I remember running every week to my hometown’s newspaper kiosk to buy the latest copy of my favorite sports newspaper. This was the only way to keep up with the latest soccer (in Europe we call it football) news and scores. The web has changed this routine: I can now satisfy my soccer fix in just a few clicks.

This summer, with the European Soccer Championship just about to start, staying up to date with soccer will be even easier thanks to soccer apps from the Chrome Web Store. UEFA Euro 2012™ by Carlsberg, 365 Scores, and Eurosport can provide you with news, scores and highlights. Who Will Win? lets you show support for your favorite teams and vote for match winners. And for those of you who have a knack for virtual goals, check out Striker Manager and some of our other soccer games.

If you’re a soccer fan, you can get these and other apps in the Chrome Web Store’s Soccer collection. If you don’t have Chrome yet, you can download Chrome with soccer apps here.
