Whoa... U.S. 2, Spain 0

Didn't see that coming. I left work early and had a late lunch with Anna at a place I could watch the first half out the corner of my eye... saw the first goal, and was shocked enough by that... but I really didn't see how the Americans were going to be able to hold off the Spaniards for 45 minutes, and didn't bother to watch the second half. Whoops! Beating the #1 team in the world... who hadn't lost for 35 straight games... has got to be one of the biggest victories for U.S. soccer ever. Such a crazy turnaround from how crappy they were playing in the first round.

So now onto the Confederations Cup final where they'll play either Brazil or host South Africa.
