I remember watching this and having to flip back and forth between this match and the England/Slovenia match making sure England didn't score as long as we were held scoreless by Algeria so that we could advance into the next round. When England scored I became scared, because we have fought way too hard to be sent home like this.
Fast forward to the second half's stoppage time where the USA is running out of time and needing a goal to advance. After an easy save by U.S. Goalie Tim Howard, he quickly sent the ball to Landon Donovan who looked up field and sent it to Jozy Altidore who continued up and sent it in the box where the Algerian Keeper came out to meet the ball. Clint Dempsey beat him to it by a half yard and sent it off of the goalie only to have the ball all alone in the middle of the box. What happens next? Landon Donovan storms in and sends the rebound home in the 90+1' giving the USA a 1-0 win and probably the most important goal in American Soccer History.
Any American Soccer fan who is a fan, remembers where they were when this goal was scored, I hate when I'm asked this question because I watched the first 70 minutes at friends house and had to leave so I tried to get home as fast as possible but traffic lights didn't want me to see the goal and I got inside and turned the television on just as they were blowing the whistle to end the game. It didn't matter because this goal sent the U.S. into the next round and I for one COULD NOT WAIT!
