Don’t worry, you are not reading the title backwards, the unthinkable has happened. I almost wrote a post on the fact that the United States secured an improbable birth into the semi-finals at the Confederations Cup (read this if you have no idea what it is), but I thought for sure, with the rest of the world, that they would be soundly dumped out of the competition by Spain.
Now I can’t resist myself. The US has beaten Spain, the FIFA #1 ranked team, who were also holding a 35 game unbeaten streak. Now, I understand these things do happen in friendlies when teams field under-strength teams to “give the young boys a try”, however, this was not the case today. This was a victory over a full-strength (minus one important injury) Spanish squad, marking one of the greatest victories in US football history.
God Bless America!
