USA wins advances in World Cup

by Steve

Wild game, 0-0 after regulation. USA had a goal disallowed in the first half and dominated the second half. Then finally in extra time the only player most Americans ever heard of, Landon Donovan, scores off a rebound in the box.

We deserved to win this one seemingly from the beginning. Break after break went the Algerian's way the final 45 minutes or so. Then finally a goal after 92+ minutes of play.

A tie in this one would have meant we go home. Instead, we win our group and advance. What a goal, what a game.

  1. FUCKING UNBELIEVABLE... never in a million years did I think I would like soccer/find it exciting. Big shout out to WC '10 for making me give a shit about this sport.

  4. Soccer is higher up on the sports echelon than hockey. Only thing that hurts this is game was 10 am on a tuesday rather than 2 pm on a sunday.
