Great ending for U.S. soccer in the World Cup against Algeria

June 23, 2010

What a great result today from the U.S. with Landon Donovan’s goal on the rebound, after so many misses (Jozy Altidore, Clint Dempsey) earlier on.  To score a goal like that two minutes before the end of the game to beat Algeria and advance is remarkable and highly unlikely.  It was all started by a good save by goalie Tim Howard, and then he didn’t hesitate and threw the ball quickly upfield.  If the U.S. plays Serbia in the second round instead of Germany, they will have an excellent chance to move on to the quarterfinals.

Last week I went to the U.S. – Switzerland Olympic hockey game in Vancouver won by the U.S., 3-1.  Here are some photos.
