The U.S. soccer team pulled off a major upset Thursday, beating top-ranked Spain 2-0 on goals by Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey.

The victory sends the Americans to the Confederations Cup final,
and snaps Spain's 15-game winning streak. Spain hadn't been beaten
since a loss to Romania in November 2006.

The United States is ranked 14th and was nearly eliminated after
losing its first two games in the eight-nation Confederations Cup,
a World Cup warmup.

The Americans will play defending champion Brazil or host South
Africa on Sunday in its first men's final at a FIFA competition.
