Brazil Fightback to Defeat Defiant United States in Confederations Cup Final

29/6/2009
The footballing fairytale that has been the USA’s journey through the Confederations Cup couldn’t have the dream ending last night, as the US saw a 2-0 half time lead evaporate into a 3-2 loss at full time against Brazil.

The tournament has been a huge success for the US side, but with a two-goal lead at the midway point, there was almost one more chapter in the most unlikely of tales. Clint Dempsey opened the scoring after volleyed in a beautiful cross from Jonathon Spector on the right hand wing. The second came after a break from a Brazilian attack. Landon Donovan and Charlie Davies went two-on-two with the defence and Donovan converted with a left-footed shot from the edge of the penalty area.

Brazil tried to get a goal back before half time but a mix of resilient defending and great goalkeeping by Tim Howard kept the score at 2-0. A Luis Fabiano strike early in the second half began the fightback, and as the US started to suffer from tired legs, it was only a matter of time before they conceded an equaliser. Eventually Luis Fabiano had the time to power in his second of the game before a late-rising Lucio headed in an Elano corner to snatch a 3-2 victory.
