2009 FIFA Confederations Cup Group B

Play in Group B of the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup completed on 21 June 2009. Brazil won the group, and advanced to the second round, along with the United States. World champions Italy and Egypt failed to advance, despite Italy defeating the United States and Egypt getting a shock victory against Italy. Both the United States and Brazil won their semi-final games and played for the tournament championship, with Brazil winning 3–2.

The final pair of matches saw a remarkable six-goal swing that enabled the bottom-of-the-table United States to climb above Italy on goals scored and qualify for the semi-final. They would go on to upset Spain 2–0 in the semi-finals to meet Brazil again in the final.
