The U.S. wins the Nike International Friendlies for the first time
The U.S. edged out Brazil in the final match of the 2011 Nike International Friendlies to win 3-1 and claim its first trophy in the history of the tournament. First half goals from Rubio Rubin, Tyler Turner and Wesley Wade (yes, we noticed their first and last names all start with the same letter!) sealed the victory, though Brazil equalized in the 12th minute with a 25-yard laser.
