Behind the Scenes at Nelson Mandela Challenge Cup

The U.S. will play its second-ever match at Ellis Park when they take the field for the FIFA Confederations Cup final this Sunday. In November of 2007, the United States participated in the 2007 Nelson Mandela Challenge Cup, defeating host South Africa 1-0 on a goal from Steve Cherundolo. Could a defender be the hero again in Jo'Burg?



The stadium also holds special memories for Jozy Altidore, who earned his first cap for the full team that day.

This is a Once in a Lifetime Opportunity.

They are writing the Spain win off as a fluke, saying we got lucky.

They will rethink this if we keep playing the way we have.

Please seize this opportunity.
