USA Advances to Gold Cup Final

This play is American soccer at it's finest. Some beautiful passes and a finish delivered by one of our greatest players, Clint Dempsey. The assist came from Landon Donovan, and the pass that set it all up came from... Freddy Adu? As in, the kid that whenever I tell someone that I like soccer they say, "Golly gee shucks, whatever happened to that Aye-doo kid?" What happened is that he entered the Gold Cup semifinal against Panama in the 64th minute and never looked back.

So after all the panic that went through my head and the rest of the U.S. Soccer community after the Americans loss to Panama in the group stage, the Americans are back to the Gold Cup final, taking on the winner of the Honduras/Mexico game. Well done, boys. Sorry for doubting you.
