The U.S. team beat the Spaniards 2-0 in a very well played match which is already being dubbed the biggest soccer win for the U.S. team ever.
The U.S. men's national team has been inconsistent throughout the ongoing World Cup qualifying matches and in to this Confederations Cup. They can be frustrating to watch at times, but for this past week they seem to have found some chemistry and put together two stellar wins.
What bodes well for U.S. soccer is the player contribution the relatively young American professional soccer league (Major League Soccer). The best U.S. players have historically left the States to play in Europe, but the trend is waning. The U.S. roster that just beat Spain has 23 players. 13 of those players are current MLS players or have recent MLS experience. MLS is still not considered a premiere league but it is definitely rising in stock by its improving quality and growing number of players making their mark on the U.S. National Team.
This victory against Spain isn't quite on the level of the 1980 Olympics U.S. hockey team over the Soviets, but it's close.
