World Cup Miracle: U.S. Trounces England, 1-1

by Wayne Robins

In the most stunning upset of FIFA World Cup 2010 in South Africa, heavy underdogs the United States demolished heavily favored England, with each team scoring one goal.

After the Brits took a quick 1-0 lead on a goal by Steven Garrard the United States tried to crawl back. But it wasn't until English goalie Robert Green was removed for a few seconds and replaced by British TV contest winner, 4-year-old Amy Yeardley of Blackburn, Lancashire, that the Yanks scored what turned out to be the winnning equalizer. A gentle bouncing left-footed touch by American player Clint Dempsey was initially stopped by Amy. But distracted by the Posh Spice Barbie doll she clutched throughout the brief photo op, the ball rolled away from Amy and into the net for the only U.S. score of the match.
