Clint Dempsey (right) scores a second goal on Spanish goalkeeper Iker Casillas to seal the semifinal win over the world's top ranked team and to send underdog USA to the Confederations Cup finals - their first men's FIFA final since 1916. Landon Donovan's low cross from the right weaved through Spanish defenders Gerard Pique and Sergio Ramos, allowing Dempsey to knock in goal two and give USA a 2-0 lead. The Americans were teetering on the edge of elimination, ready to pack their bags and head back to the States with their head hung low. Instead, their dazzling performance at Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein, South Africa is being referred to as an echo of the U.S. hockey team's upset of the Soviet Union at the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics.
