The Goal Heard 'Round the World (Cup) 27

  • Posted by: Sarah Braunstein

I am supposed to be a writer, but I have no words for this.

I feel like I should talk about how many chances team USA had to score in their pivotal match again Algeria.

But all I want to say is WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOO!

I should probably mention that Landon Donovan’s winner was the latest World Cup goal in US history. That he not only won the match and the group but solidified himself as one of the greatest US athletes ever.

But all I want to do is run around in my number 10 jersey and yell USA! USA! USA!

I want to think about how important this win is for the US. How it redeems all the hard work the players have put in, all the time spent in clubs around the world, all the miles traveled to play as many different international matches as possible.

But I just want to jump up and down and scream YESSSSSSSSSSSSS!

It would be worth it to mention how the US battled back for the second game in a row. How they overcame a terrible offsides call and a number of missed fouls by Algerian players. How they once again showed the importance of playing hard every single minute.

But I am not going to say that. Instead I am going to say:

USA RULES!!!!! WE ARE THE BEST!!!! JUST TRY AND STOP US!!!! LANDON DONOVAN IS A NATIONAL HERO!!!!! THAT WAS AN AWESOME AWESOME GAME!!!!! BRING ON THE ROUND OF 16!!!!!

SAW THAT GOAL ON A PLANE FLIGHT TO ALASKA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THAT'S COOL!

best goal ive seen in my life but i cried when lost against ghana

I'm glad that US beat Algeria but they should've been able to beat Ghana as well. Even though every game isn't perfect, they should've been able to get past them. I believe that the US team was better but they lost so that's too bad. Plus, I didn't know that professional athletes could have eye problems. The comical picture says why. Also, I'm glad that Spain won because they are pretty awesome.

the usa will go farther next world cup in brazil. they will at least get to the quarterfinals

totally in agreement

i didn't know donovan wore contacts!

Me neither!!

If donovon was so buisy looking for his contact lense then what was the point of him playing.

USA IS NOT GOOD AT SOCCER!

Actually, by getting out of England's clutches and then nearly losing to slovenia and then getting beat by a team they should have beat a long time ago isn't exactly good.

The USA is good because they are 16th in the whole world. Even though they lost they are a great team.

This is alright, i wosh there was more infor about the game..

lol the US got overconfident and lost to a country 1/15th of their size! IT WAS HLARIOUS how sloppy they played! They shoulda lost 6-1 for cryin' out loud! Oh, well. GO GERMANY! KICK SOME OVERCONFIDENT SOUTH AMERICAN BUTTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! W00TW00TW00T!!!!!!
