Stage is Set For a Rematch Against Brazil

A goal in the 88th minute was just enough for the Brazilian side, as they knocked off South Africa in the Semifinals of the Confederations Cup 1-0. This sets up a rematch for the United States, and they will face Brazil on Sunday at 1:25pm in the Finals, with the game to be broadcast on ESPN2.

It would have been better in the USA's interest if South Africa could have squeezed out a victory, as Brazil is clearly a much better team. Brazil has already had their way with America once in this tournament, beating the U.S. 3-0 in the first round. But if you want to be the best, you have to beat the best, and after the States win against Spain yesterday, I guess anything is possible.
