    BLOEMFONTEIN, South Africa -- The U.S. stunned top-ranked Spain 2-0 Thursday night on goals by Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey, advancing to the Confederations Cup final with one of the Americans' biggest soccer victories.

    Altidore scored in the 27th minute and Dempsey added a goal in the 74th as the Americans became the first team to defeat Spain since Romania in November 2006.

    The chances of such a U.S. victory seemed slim just a few days ago. The 14th-ranked Americans lost their first two games in the Confederations Cup, an eight-nation World Cup warmup, and were on the verge of elimination.

    Now they will play defending champion Brazil or host South Africa on Sunday in its first-ever men's final at a FIFA competition...

    Yeah, I'm slipping.

    If we don't talk anymore about it, maybe it will go away.

    USA! USA!!! USA!!!!!!!!!

    Some commentators are trying to compare this to the US Hockey Team defeating the Soviets at Lake Placid. Not even close.

    But, it is still a major deal. And, the US team will play in the final against Brazil or South Africa.
