FIFA Confederations Cup: United States 3 - 0 Egypt

The United States secured an unlikely place in the Confederations Cup semifinals by beating Egypt 3-0 Sunday. The Americans had looked to be heading out of the tournament after losses to Italy and Brazil, but Charlie Davies, Michael Bradley and Clint Dempsey scored in a vastly improved performance to edge the African champions for a place in the next round on goal difference. With Brazil beating Italy 3-0 in the other Group B game, the United States will now play Spain in Bloemfontein on Wednesday.
