[AWARDS] The U.S. men's national team won best moment at the ESPYs for its 2-1 victory over Ghana in the opening group match of the 2014 World Cup in Natal.

Clint Dempsey accepted the ESPY for Best Moment along with seven of his teammates -- Jozy Altidore, DaMarcus Beasley, Kyle Beckerman, Jermaine Jones, Nick Rimando, Chris Wondolowski and DeAndre Yedlin -- at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.

The men's national team also won in 2010 for the 1-0 victory over Algeria in its final group match at the World Cup.

Other nominees in the category were Mariano Rivera's final game and Kevin Durant's MVP acceptance speech.

The ESPY Awards have been given out annually since 1993 and are determined by fan vote.
