Somehow the US was able to put two goals in the back of the net, on their way to upsetting Spain, the number one team in the world. They’ll be heading to the final of the Confederations Cup, but after that game, will anyone in the US care?

The US capatilized on their chances as Altidore and Dempsey while Howard stayed strong in net to prevent Spains attack from scoring in a tough game that the Americans clearly showed up for.

Soccer is all about capatilizing on the chances you get and the US was able to do that. Just being in this game was a miracle considering the crushing defeats to Italy and Brazil, but it was a damn good thing Bob Bradleys team finally decided to show up. This will certainly be a big boost in confidence considering the teams struggles not only in this tournament, but the last few qualifying games as well.

This now becomes one of the better moments in US soccer history, although it will not be as highly touted as the others because it was not in the World Cup. But the fact of the matter is, the US took down the #1 team in the world, a team that was riding a 35 game win streak and are headed to a final with Brazil in three days.

I’m personally a German soccer fan, but because of my citizenship I do root for the US. GO USA!
