In the Confederations Cup in South Africa, the United States men’s national soccer team just beat Spain, the #1 team in the world, 2-0.

Spain had been unbeaten in its 35 previous matches, and hadn’t lost to a non-European team since 1999, when they fell to Argentina.

Truly unbelievable.

Highlights are here.

And here are pics from the game, via Getty Images:
