Oh That Wacky Confederations Cup

- Egypt scored what for them is probably their greatest victory ever and Italy maybe its most embarrassing loss ever as the African champs beat the Azzuri 1-0. The games only goal was scored by the unfortunately named Mohammed Homos. Egypt and Italy both still have a chance now to advance to the semifinals of the tournament

- Meanwhile, this tournament has been a disaster for USA soccer. They followed up a 3-1 beating against Italy with a 3-0 drubbing at the hands of Brazil. Felipe Melo, Robinho, and Maicon scored for the Brazilians.

- In Group A, Spain has already clinched a spot in the semis. The other spot is going to go to either host nation, South Africa, or to Iraq. South Africa will be in if they can get a point in their group finale against Spain, while Iraq needs a South Africa loss and a big win over New Zealand to advance.
