BlackburnBob: the yellow at the end of the game for Pique was for dissent; he wasn't the one who made the "tackle" (aka stand up straight and let Landon Donovan run into you).

I still haven't seen the whole game, but the amount of mainstream attention this game is getting over here is huge. Part of me is happy that the sport is getting mainstream attention in the US, but part of me is yelling "hands off-- if you don't follow this team game in game out then you shouldn't reap the rewards when we win" (in a resentful way). But seriously, this is the first soccer highlight I've EVER seen on ESPN where the hosts don't make jokes and disrespect the sport the whole way through. Maybe it's because it's the national team and we're all "American."

English people: Is the coverage of this game that big in England, or was it sort of a one-day big story and now people would rather talk about transfers again?

It was shown on our television, was a shocker last night to see Spain go down, but it's back to transfer stuff now, as i say the Confed Cup is on, but no-one really see's it as important, never the less a good result!!

Only I know that... Hahahahaha. cheers

And jpini, I know exactly what you're saying. I am extremely happy for the US, but couldn't stand logging on to Facebook and seeing random people who have never even seen a game "celebrate" the victory. It's great and all that the media is trying to jump on this, but if you try to get into a conversation with them it proves pointless. Football in America will never make it...these same people will go back to bashing the sport next week, especially after we get smoked by Brazil.

That happens allover Brian, as you know i love NHL and Baseball (sometimes even a little NASCAR) but i get slated for it as it's not a "UK" sport. I just need to get to Fenway Park and watch The Sox, i've played in the stadium on the 360, next has to be the real McCoy, watch Ellsbury run so fast he goes into next year and Ortiz to hit the ball so hard it lands in ym back yard!!! Very Happy

I really didn't expect for South Africa to get through the half unscathed. Great half for them as they controlled most of the half. a few close calls for Brazil, but Steven Pienaar was the closest with his shot that was JUST WIDE...ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!! let's go South Africa!!!

Yay me for placing $45 on Brazil throughout the match...$25 during the first half 20 minutes in....another $20 with 20 minutes left. It all paid off and netted me $70 plus my money back.

Wow pretty close for the US but at the end of the day Brasil were the deserved winners, i certainly didn't see those two US goals coming though.

It's disappointing but the tournament has been very positive overall. There are a few key things US can take away from it. First of all, they got the experience of beating a top world team. Secondly, they played with more heart and concentration the past three games than they've had in a long time. And a third thing is that prior to this tournament, the US fanbase was panicking that we have no depth at the defender position, but Bradley found a very very effective back line in Bocanegra outside, Demerit and Onyewu inside, and Spector outside on the other side. No more DeMarcus Beasley at left back. Even Bornstein got some valuable playing time against the best of the best. Going off that, a few other young players got valuable experience too, including Charlie Davies, Altidore, Ricardo Clark, even Benny Feilhaber and to an extent Brad Guzan. In terms of valuable things to carry into WC Qualifying and the actual WC, it was a very good US campaign. I can't wait to see how they play in Mexico in August.
