Brazil Beat Bafana; Set up Rematch with U.S.

Brazil defeated hosts South Africa 1-0 last night to set up a Group B rematch with the United States in the Confederations Cup final on Sunday. Bafana Bafana put up a spirited resistance for the majority of the 90 minutes, buoyed by a vibrant sold-out crowd at Ellis Park, but Daniel Alves' 88th minute free kick proved to be the only difference between the two sides. While Brazil moves on to Sunday's final, also in Ellis Park, South Africa will face Spain in the third-place game in Rustenberg.

And when the Philistine arose, and was coming, and drew nigh to meet David, David made haste, and ran to the fight to meet the Philistine. 49 And he put his hand into his scrip, and took a stone, and cast it with the sling, and fetching it about, struck the Philistine in the forehead, and he fell on his face upon the earth. 50 And David prevailed over the Philistine, with a sling and a stone, and he struck, and slew the Philistine. Coach B your sling adu and your stone altidore. PAIR THEM AND WATCH THE PHILISTINE FALL! Go Team USA!
