Another Great US Victory

There were probably not many who believed that the USA would stand a chance in the Confederation Cup semi final against reigning European champion Spain. Mum did, but she is always the US patriot. However, the USA surprised almost everyone by beating Spain 2-0. The USA is now qualified for the final this Sunday. What is maybe of the greatest significance is that the US team prevented Spain from setting a new world record of 36 matches without defeat. The USA did this, a nation not known for its successes in football (soccer, in American English). It is terrific.
