[Confed Cup] USA 2-3 Brazil
USA 2-3 BRAZIL
Ellis Park Stadium, Johannesburg
Brazil denied the United States of America a shock victory by coming back from two goals down to win the FIFA Confederations Cup in Johannesburg. A Clint Dempsey flick and a Landon Donovan strike on the counter put the US into a surprise 2-0 half-time lead. Luis Fabiano pulled one back for Brazil before Ricardo Kaka was denied an equaliser when his header was wrongly judged not to have crossed the line. Luis Fabiano's headed second levelled matters before, five minutes from time, Lucio nodded in a corner to win it.
USA: Howard, Spector, DeMerit, Onyewu, Bocanegra, Dempsey, Clark (Casey 88), Feilhaber (Bornstein 75), Donovan, Davies, Altidore (Kljestan 75).
