''The Miracle on Grass'' saw a heavy underdog U.S. team -- which had lost its last seven international matches by a combined 45-2 -- stun an unprepared English team in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Behind Haitian-born Joey Gaetjens' first-half strike, the Americans logged a 1-0 win, one of the biggest upsets in the history of the game at the time. A few British dailies presumed the score line was a typo, and some ran headlines that read 10-0 or 11-1 in favor of England.
