RUSTENBURG, South Africa: United States midfielder Sacha Klejstan had cause for relief as well as excitement as his team looks forward to this week's surprise Confederations Cup semifinal match against Spain.

The midfielder was suspended for Sunday's 3-0 win over Egypt after he got his first ever international red card in the previous game against Brazil.

Klejstan apologized to his teammates after the game but remained concerned that his tough tackle, which could easily have attracted only a yellow card but left the United States a man short for 33 minutes, could have cost his team a chance of progress to the next round.
