The United States Defeat Guatemala

USA Eliminates Guatemala from World Cup 

In a game Guatemala had to win in order to keep their 2010 World Cup hope alive, two second half goals insured a United States victory. 

Coach Bob Bradley played a bunch of young players in this game, and it certainly paid off. 

Freddy Adu dominated this game and scored a fantastic free kick in the 68th minute to seal the 2-0 win. The other youngster Jozy Altidore was creative and set up the first goal to Kenny Cooper in the 55th minute. 

A great win tonight for the United States.

Brazil dominate Portugal

This is the Brazil team we all know. Brazil put 6 goals on the board and defeated Portugal 6-2 at the Estadio Bezerrao.

Kaka and Robinho were in the starting lineup for Brazil but it was Luis Fabiano who led the way with 3 goals for Brazil. Adriano also continued his good form scoring a goal off the bench in injury time.

World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo continued his struggles at the national team level and could not get it going for Portugal. The Portugal goals were scored by Danny and Simao. 

This type of performance from Brazil puts them among the favorites to win the World Cup.

Here are game highlights:
