The United States has just flabbergasted the world, ending Spain's 35-match unbeaten streak with a 2-nil shutout of the planet's No. 1 team. Put that in your vuvuzela and blow on it.
Pretty much everyone agreed that the Americans has no business even being in this match after getting lambasted by Brazil and Italy, before a miracle six-goal swing gave them a pass out of the preliminaries on goal-differential. Spain was all over goalie Tim Howard in the second-half, peppering him with shots, but they could not break the seal. The U.S. got two big chances, took advantage of both and sent a message to the entire world. We are not incompetent at soccer!
They'll play in the Confederations Cup final on Sunday against either Brazil (very talented!) or South Africa (very loud!)
