U.S.A advances! Brazil wins big
Posted 21 June 2009 - 01:11 PM
Crazy day in the FIFA confederation qualifications in group B.
Okay let me set you guys up on the situations, Brazil was undefeated beating U.S and Egypt so all they need was to play their last game and no matter the result they where in the next round.
Italy, beat U.S and lost a shocker to Egypt, so they had to win or tie their game and score one goal to advance.
Egypt, they had a one goal lead against Italy, if Italy lost, all Egypt had to do is hold off U.S even if they lost but if they lost it couldn't be more then 2 goals.
U.S, with TWO loses! Had ZERO chance of advancing going in today. They needed major help from Brazil and had to win their game against Egypt big time!
So what ended up happening today, Brazil beats Italy 3-0. U.S beats Egypt 3-0, what does that mean?
U.S advances with the odds against them!
Breaking down the games, Brazil came out very strong using their quick speed to put in two goals from Luis Fabiano and a own goal from Italy.
U.S took a 1-0 lead in the first from Charlie Davies, then two more in the second half.
So now the semifinals are set, Wendesday it will be Spain vs. U.S at 2:25 p.m. et. and Brazil vs. South Africa on Thursday at 2:25 p.m. et.
I predict Spain vs. Brazil in the finals, it's hard to pick for either team because I love both but all I know is that it will be an exciting match.

I didn't think they would advance either. Let alone beat Egypt.
