4TH UPDATE: Here are the highlights in case you missed the match, or just want to relive your jaunt onto the MNT bandwagon.
3RD UPDATE: It’s over! USA Wins, 2-0!
2ND UPDATE: USA’s Michael Bradley gets a red card with four minutes left. America’s a man down. That’s not good.
ZOMG! Clint Dempsey just scored on a loose ball! It’s 2-0 America! We’re good now!
Nineteen-year-old Jozy Altidore scored in the 27th minute of Team USA’s Confederations Cup semifinal with Spain, giving the MNT a 1-0 lead that they’ve managed to carry into halftime. Spain has since responded with well-timed attacks that have barely come up unfinished, and one has to think that the Americans can only dodge so many bullets before the world’s No. 1-ranked team finds the back of the net.
The second half just started. We’ll recap the game when it ends. You can follow the game here if you’re stuck at work. ESPN forgot to load this page with annoying videos, so you should be good.
