The US just beat the #1 team in the world, Spain, in the semifinals of the Confederations Cup — breaking Spain’s world-record-tying 35-game unbeaten streak.
Final score: 2-nil, and they played the last 7 minutes with only 10 men on the field due to a bullshit straight red card from the Ref for a routine tackle!
Goals from Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey, but the real match-winner had to be goal keeper Tim Howard. He was being SHELLED out there.
Now the US moves on to the final against the winner of tomorrow’s Brazil-South Africa match.
After an embarrassing start, the US finally woke up against Egypt, and now have pulled off what some are already calling the upset of the decade. If they can keep up this level of play in next year’s World Cup….
…but no, it’s too early. I can’t even *think* that.
