The lowest-seeded team in the field never broke from its defensive posture, dragging Spain into penalty kicks before prevailing.

A team of private investigators who spent years trying to crack the D.B. Cooper case claimed Thursday they decoded a letter from the hijacker revealing his identity.
The team, led by documentary filmmaker Thomas Colbert, claims that a letter sent to “The Portland Oregonian Newspaper” contains a confession from Army veteran Robert Rackstraw.
Colbert told the New York Daily News that he received the letter after suing the FBI for the files. He said he noticed that the letter was written in a similar fashion to a separate letter and he called a code breaker to decipher it.
Colbert said the words “And please tell the lackey cops” meant “I am 1st LT Robert Rackstraw.”
