    For 45 minutes, it looked like the U.S. might just pull off another miracle Sunday.

    Up 2-0 against a confused-looking Brazil side, the Americans were displaying the acumen and grit they showed in their midweek upset of No. 1 ranked Spain. Fans were daring to believe that after all this time, and after so much heartbreak, this might finally be the U.S.'s moment to shine.

    And so the final score was excruciating — 3-2 Brazil, with the golden boys showing how they got that nickname, and why they are among the best on the planet.

    Yeah, that was too bad. The Americans played pretty well and almost pulled off an upset.

    However, the results are not as stunning as they once were. America is not in the top echelons of soccer but we aren't pushovers anymore either. Beating Spain and almost beating Brazil are upsets but they aren't huge upsets as they once were.
