Eight years ago this summer, the United States men's national team stunned top-ranked (and eventual World Cup champion Spain) en route to the Confederations Cup final. To USMNT fans of a certain vintage, it's hard to fathom it was that long ago. Memories are vivid: the 3-0 rout of Egypt in the group stage finale to clinch an unlikely berth in the knockout rounds; the upset of an all-time great Spanish team that was unbeaten in 35 games beforehand; Landon Donovan staking the U.S. to an ultimately...
