The U.S. team just defeated Spain 2-0 in the Confederations Cup, which is widely viewed as the lead-up tourney to next year's highly anticipated World Cup. Spain is the current European champion and the top-ranked team in the world. The team had been undefeated since 2006, winning 35 games in a row until today's upset.

Brazil plays South Africa tomorrow, and the U.S., in its first major international final ever, plays the winner of that game on Sunday at 2pm EST.

*Yeah we know, we know: what is this, the Post? I hereby pledge that "Jamon It" is the last corny title I will ever deploy – I swear it.
