We’ll get to the details of the U.S. losing to Brazil in the Confederations Cup final tomorrow, but for now, let’s just bask in the first half of the game — and in particular, Landon Donovan’s gorgeous 27th-minute goal.  I’ve followed USA soccer closely since the World Cup in ’94, and I’ve never seen the Gringos score a goal as beautiful as that.  And from Donovan!  He usually disappears on the biggest stages, but he was tremendous during the last two games against the best in the world.

A counterattack goal in five perfect touches.  You don’t see that much, and certainly not from the Team USA.  I’m ready for the World Cup to start now.
