U.S. victory nominated for ESPY's 'Best Upset' Award

The USA's victory against No. 1-ranked Spain in the semifinals of the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup has been nominated for the 2009 ESPY's 'Best Upset' Award. The 2-0 win that ended Spain's record-tying 35-match unbeaten run has been added to the list as an instant candidate. You can vote for the USA's effort on the (UPDATED LINK) official ESPY's website. The 2009 ESPY's will air July 19 at 9 p.m. ET.

Of course, the U.S. team rightly puts all the credit where it belongs:

The Vuvuzebra!
