US vs Egypt (3-0) Highlights

Relive all three goals as much as you want. And man, the composure by Bradley on the second and that magnificent header by Dempsey are worth watching at least another 2 or 3 times. I am still in disbelief that we went from last in the bracket with a -5 goal differential to advancing to the semis.

Now, when I look back on the bracket, we lost to to two of the top 5 teams in the world this past week...and in both games we ended up playing with 10 men. And then look at how badly Brazil smoked Italy. Does our loss to Brazil look a little less intimidating? Maybe we are not as bad as we were looking, maybe we are. Regardless, we are headed to the semis and about to play the number 1 team in the world. I hope we can keep 11 on the pitch so that we can get a true measure of our team.

23 Americans advanced, 1 went home. Sweet sweet justice.
