A goal was stolen from USA in their last match against Slovenia and with that goal the victory and the three points that would send them in the first place in Group C, today against Algeria they would secure their victory fast.

Believe it or not another goal was stolen from them, when Clint Dempsey was already celebrating, Bob Bradley couldn’t believe it even former President Clinton was clearly upset, but this episode was not slowing them, and the game proceeded. USA had the chance to score again by a pass from Landon Donovan, but Altidore kicked it too hard and the Jabulami was way too high. And the first half ended, goalless.

The second half started with one slight change from USA, Herculez Gomez was replaced by #22 Benny Feilhaber the Brazilian/ American player who plays at the AGF Aarhus in Denmark.

90 Minutes went by and the game was getting more exciting, but then on the 91st minute Landon Donovan scored after Altidore’s kick was blocked by the goalkeeper. USA’s players celebrated their victory and the fans joined them. The Americans advances alongside England in the World Cup. While Slovenia would be saying goodbye to South Africa.
