The USA’s victory against Ecuador marks the first time the team has made it to a semifinal outside of its region since 2009 — amazing! Despite early criticism from various soccer experts, Jurgen Klinsmann led the team to win a game in which both teams were down to ten guys by the end. Pretty remarkable.
The U.S. men’s team’s last three games have gathered record-breaking viewership for Fox Spots 1, making them the most-watched soccer matches of all time with 2 million viewers each. Nice!
But Jurgen and the boys now face the daunting task of taking on the worlds number 1 team. They guys from Argentina are highly motivated too as they attempt to end 23-years at the senior international level without winning a major trophy .

US team captain Michael Bradley is confident in his players, led by veteran striker Clint Dempsey, and their abilities to take on Argentina. “There’s a bunch of very good players on their team. We have a few good players, as well,” he told reporters on June 20, about facing Messi and the rest of the team. “Sure, on paper they’re the team that everybody thinks is going to win. No problem. But ultimately, when that whistle blows, it’s still 90 minutes of competition.” We can’t wait to see how it all shakes out!
