For many fans American soccer history only truly began with that famous win over England at the 1950 World Cup, yet this overlooks the active role that the United States played in the early editions of the tournament. In 1930 they entered as unrated outsiders but won two matches to reach the semi-final. Four years later a 4-2 win over Mexico in their one qualifying tie earned them the right to participate in their second successive tournament. Involvement that time was over all too quickly. In a straight knock out tournament the USA unluckily drew the hosts and favourites Italy and, despite a brilliant performance from goalkeeper Julius Hjulian, suffered a heavy 7-1 defeat.
