Under-20 World Cup: U.S. Stuns Brazil

This match was a free-flowing affair with plenty of spectacular end to end play. Adu in particular was exceptional; the only question is whether he can consistently play at this level. Sadly, I cannot find any close-up of the ridiculous move that Freddie pulled to set-up the second USA goal. Dave B. and I were screaming at the TV but to no avail. All the replays started just after the move. In the video link below, you can see the move, but not a close-up. Oh well.

The U.S. advances into the round of 16 and will face Uruguay in Toronto on Wednesday. If you've yet to check out our kids, I suggest you tune in on Wednesday at 7:30 pm on ESPNU. They are a joy to watch.
