It Doesn't Get Any Better!

On Wednesday the USA defeated Spain 2-0 in a semifinal of the Confederations Cup, the dress rehearsal for next year's World Cup. For those of you not soccer fans, the World Cup is the most watched sports tournament in the world.

Since some sites have raised the question, I'll give my answer: this was the biggest win in American soccer history. Spain was the top ranked team in the world, and had not lost an international match since November, 2006. The USA's previous benchmark had been the 1950 World Cup win over England in a match played in Brazil.

On Sunday the USA will face either Brazil or host South Africa in the Final.
