Brazil - 1  RSA - 0[key note the ONLY goal was scored with 1 minute left in the game]{Semi-finals}
Spain - 3  RSA - 2[game was 1-0 RSA until 4 minutes to go in the game when Spain tied it, 34 seconds later another goal was scored and 12 seconds to go in stoppage time RSA tied the game, in extra time Spain scored the winning goal with about 6 minutes to go]{3rd place game}

If the USA plays like this in the World Cup they could be legitimate contenders.

2-1 now... if the score holds up due to the FIFA ranking system's math... the MOST the US can jump unless certain teams from UEFA and CONMEBOL lose and lose horribly from 14 to 11 if we keep the winning streak going through the Qualifiers and some Friendlies we will probably be top 8 in the world this time next year.

Aaaaaand the defense decided to eat its lunch fast and leave early, leading to a 3-2 loss.  Way to go, boys. [/deadpan]

They should at least not be humiliated, but geez, that's dumb.
