Not showing at the Theatre of Dreams

The New York Times quotes Fox Sports USA executive vice president for soccer Jonty Whitehead on their new Multimatch 90 channel which will hop around parallel UEFA Champions League matches --

“This is, after all, where the best soccer players in the world turn out,” Whitehead said. “Bale. Wayne Rooney. Ronaldo. Robin van Persie. The list is endless, and we get to see what they do best.”

There's just one problem. Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie play for Manchester United, which did not qualify for the Champions League this season.
