the United States Men's National Team just beat the consensus no 1 team in the world--Spain by a score of 2-0. Absolutely unbelievable!!!!!
The U.S. worked hard, played smart and benefitted from a massively strong central defense and the unbelievable hard work of Michael Bradley (who got sent off on a harsh red card), Clint Dempsey (who scored the insurance goal) and Onguchi Onyewu. Brilliant keeping by Tim Howard and the U.S. have arguable their biggest win to date. Certainly they are riding an emotional high right now going into the Final on Sunday.
On Saturday everyone (including me) was counting them out, but now the U.S. are assured of no worse that 2nd Place.
Oh and to top it all off, it is the U.S. that handed Spain their first defeat in almost three years and put an end to their hopes of breaking the world record for an unbeaten streak.
