USA 0-1 Brazil: 1999 Confederations Cup Group Stage

The second match again Brazil again was not available on regular TV but highlights were released right after the match. I followed the game on an internet match tracker and was devastated when Ronaldinho scored an early goal. But US kept Brazil off the board from that point on and had a chance to equalize when Joe Max Moore was taken down in the area. Moore took the PK but seemed hesitant as he stepped and struck it allowing an easy save for Dida. The US lost 1-0 and combined with Germany’s 2-0 win over the Kiwis, team USA had to get a victory in the final group game against the Germans. A draw would result in German advancement on goal difference.

Here was the US lineup versus Brazil:

Keller-Agoos-Llamosa (Lewis)-Fraser-Hejduk-Berhalter-Harkes (Max Moore)-Stewart-C. Jones-Kirovski-McBride
