Wow what a great day it was if you are the football fan as we saw one of the best two games ever as one would dream of in a day but both went to the favourites as accepted but not the way one thought it would as they had to fight as hard as they can to get the victory in their hands first it was spain who were playing against the host of the confederations cup south africa who were not there just to count the numbers they fought as well one could for the third place playoff as the match had everything that can give one the heartattack in the end spain turned out to win the game with liverpool midfielder scoring in extra time to giving thrilling victory to spain, But it was not enough if you saw the other game then you would be like mum which saw brazil take on usa in the final of the confedrations cup it was one of the best final one can remember after uefa champions league final of liverpool vs ac milan this game saw oone of the best comebacks ever in the history after going 2-0 down brazilians comeback to win 3-2 in another thrilling victory although there was a goal from kaka in middle of the game which was disallowed by the referees still brazil came out on top with their defender lucio scoring the late winner which earned brazil the title they truly deserved.

It has been unpredictable week in all sports going around first we saw pakistan beating the favourites srilanka to win the final of world t20 and then we saw maria sharapova the former wimbledon champion crashed out in the second round of the tournament to the young unseeded player which shocked many as it was second early exit for sharapova in two susessive years as she had earlier lost in the first round of wimbledon last year in 2008 then we saw 5th seed del potro going down to former us open champion leyton hewitt but the best shock so far was to see spain lossing to minnows of soccer USA with the cliassic 2-0 victory with the goals from altidore and dempsey which saw the euro champions go home packing their bags. It was again a close fought 2nd semifinal which saw southafrica the host giving unbelieveable performance but it just didnt turn out to be enough for brazil who were completely outplayed by the hosts but brazil just came through with the late 87th minute goal by the barca right back danny alves which saw brazil get away on the day and fix the final with usa.

Pakistan proved they were deserving world champions in twenty 20 world championship of cricket in yesterdays final where they beat srilanka by eight wickets in what turned out to be a comfertable victory in the end they were completely out played in the first phase of the tournament by england it looked very difficult at the time that pakistan will go beyond the super six stage but they turned around completely at the expense of droping senior players like salman butt and sohail tanvir and bringing in young blood in the form of shahzad and mohammad aamir who were very impressing in the tournament and no one can forget contributions of shahid afridi with the ball through out the tournament and his couple of half centuries in semi finals and finals did turned out to be crucial figure in their victory, Pakistan who lost in the finals last year against india and they truly deserve to win the championship.
