The USA vs. Algeria game in the Fifa World Cup 2010 proved to be all it was hyped up to be and then some. If the U.S. beat Algeria, they would control their own destiny and move on. If they tied and England won, the U.S. would be out.
Having caught just the highlights, those that were able to watch the whole game were certainly served a nice soccer treat. The game was fast paced–especially with the U.S. knowing that England had scored a goal in their game.
Going into the U.S. Algeria match, most experts predicted the U.S. had a good chance of winning. However, Algeria seemed up to the challenge and kept the game scoreless through the entire game. It wasn’t until stoppage time, after the first 90 minutes, the Landon Donovan was able to nail a richochet off the Algerian defense into the back of the net for a USA win.
