YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! Donovan late goal vs Algeria puts USA through

Donovan is the hero!

GOAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!

Wow. It looked like we were doomed. We had another perfectly good goal disallowed. We had chance after chance that just didn’t go in. Algeria had their chances on the break, but there was only going to be one winner. And we did it. What a goal. What a game. What a World Cup. What a day for US soccer.

The play had gotten really ragged through the last ten minutes. Not just stretched but choppy.

I can’t really describe my emotions right now. Just unbelievable.

So happy for Landon Donovan. He deserves it. We deserve it.

And we won the group! Let’s see what happens in the afternoon matches, but we could be in very good shape here.

Congratulations to our boys in South Africa. Congratulations to Bob Bradley for rolling the dice. Congratulations to American soccer fans. We’ve endured a lot. We go into the next round on an unbelievable high. Let’s do this!

  2. Funny. THAT Yessssssssssssssssssss! also was my immediate Facebook posting. Good grief, how many chances went astray, how many times did you fear that all would come to naught, how many times did you fear having to put up with the comments of the disinterested and the unwashed because you’re a serious football fan? Well, for now, all is well.
