usa-2-spain-0 The shock of the tournament and one of the biggest upsets in international football history spain unbeaten in over 30 odd games lost to the usa tonight in the Confederations Cup.Having cruised through their group stages without conceding a goal, Spain were looking to seal a 16th successive win against a USA side that only scraped into the last four on goal difference thanks to a win over Egypt on Sunday!Goals from altidore and dempsey did the damage and what a boost to usa soccer this is!In the 27th minute when Altidore picked up a pass from Dempsey on the edge of the area and powerfully turned past Villarreal club-mate Joan Capdevila before driving  the ball beyond Iker Casillas.Spain were far from their normal best and struggled to make clear opportunities in the game.

From start to finish the usa defended  bravely and as spain pushed on Dempsey put the usa 2-0 up as he capitalised on Sergio Ramos mistake game over.Michael Bradley was red carded in the closing stages for a foul on Xavi and the managers son will now miss the final

First time Spain have been beaten for over 2 and a half years since November 2006 and snapped a world-record 15-game winning streak for the team widely expected to win the tournament.

The New York Times’ George Vecsey  quoted “when you think of it, the victory Wednesday is probably the second-biggest upset by an American team, behind only the 1980 Miracle on Ice by the hockey team over the Soviet Union in the Olympics.”

The USA will face either Brazil or hosts South Africa in the final on Sunday Once decent win and they go around wrecking the ranking ! USA fans wasted no time in adjusting the Wikipedia page for the FIFA World Rankings to reflect their 2-0 Confederations Cup semi-final victory over Spain.The US   jump miraculously from 14th place to the top spot, while Spain – now playing under that well-known regional governing body  dropped down to fill the USA’s vacated place.Its a funny old game please comment below!

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the
    video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence
    on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving
    us something enlightening to read?

    You really make it seem really easy along with your presentation
    but I find this matter to be actually one thing that I believe
    I might by no means understand. It seems too complicated and extremely huge for me.
    I’m looking ahead in your next submit, I will attempt to get the grasp of it!

    Can I just say what a relief to find somebody
    that truly knows what they are talking about on
    the web. You certainly understand how to bring an issue to light and make
    it important. More people should read this and understand this side of your
    story. I was surprised that you’re not more popular because you definitely possess the gift.
