Maybe that United States side isn't dead after all? Despite being second-best for most of the first half, they are just one goal down thanks to Herculez Gomez's goal just before halftime, which cut the Brazil lead to 2-1.
The move could have been disastrous because of a poor touch by Maurice Edu, but the Americans managed to keep the ball. Eventually, the ball found Michael Bradley, who slipped an inch-perfect ball into Fabian Johnson. Johnson got to the ball just before the end line and crossed to the middle, where it took a deflection before popping up to the late-running Gomez. Despite there being a foot in front of him, Gomez bravely stuck his head in and nodded the ball in from goal range, and the match was back on.
