The United States played an impressive 90 minutes to beat the number 1 team in the world and earn a spot in the finals of the Confederations Cup in South Africa. This is a great win for US Soccer against the premier soccer team in international competition. The US will most likely face a formidable Brazil team this Sunday (Brazil plays host South Africa today in the other semifinal). Spain had not lost since 2006.
Landon Donovan and Tim Howard had great games, Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey had the goals. Spain outshot the US squad 29 to 9 and won the corner kick battle 17-3 but the US put the ball in the net and then held on to keep a very talented group without a goal.
More attention should be given to this really remarkable performance, it will do a lot for US soccer worldwide.
