U.S. earns an ESPY for Spain stunner
Los Angeles -- The U.S. National Team was named winner of the Best Upset award at the ESPYs at the Nokia Theatre on Wednesday night.
Los Angeles Galaxy forward Landon Donovan, who will play against the Red Bulls at Giants Stadium on Thursday night, accepted the award for his National Teammates.
