the Americans gave it a great go, but ran out of gas and it was obvious. The quick start by the Americans gave me hope and I have to admit I was thinking about the upset win and was getting a little out of my mind. The high was high.
But the quick goal by Fabiano in the second half was the real turning point. The longer the U.S. held that 2-0 lead the more likely that they would win. But the Brazilian pressure was just to much in the end.
More thoughts on the game later as it stews a bit in my head.
