ALL-TIME U.S. BEST: U.S. performances at the Olympics have not been of Hall-of-Fame material, but if an individual performance deserves to be called the best, it would have to be Rick Davis' in 1984. In the 3-0 win over Costa Rica, the team captain scored two goals, the first and the last.

Predictions:

Gold _ Brazil

Silver _ Argentina

Bronze _ Spain

_ ROGER MILLS
