    Thrilling match...so many chances, one US goal questionably disallowed, but Donovan pulled off a spectacular rebound in the 91st minute. Whew!

    Tall about a nail-biter. Geez!

    At least my two favorite teams are through. Congrats to England as well.

    Excellent last minute goal by Donovan. From eliminaton to the top of the group.

    Great match by England too, 1-0 over Slovenia but the dominated the entire match.

    Both teams need to up their goal scoring to get much further.

    I changed the thread title slightly, because the game is through, but they aren't!

    Yes... They are through to the knock out stage.

    Anyway, the US have played really well in their 3 group stage games. Congrats.

    I watched the England game in a bar here in Brooklyn that had the USA game playing in the front and the England game in the back room... Was fantastic. Great atmosphere. People running back and forth to keep an eye on both games. Nail biting stuff hey??

    Congratulations to the USA - a well deserved win and to top the group too. Very well played.

    Looks like England will meet Germany in the next round. Gulp.

    Just watched the highlights of the USA match, they deserved to win and go through to the next round, just like England.

    Just saw the goal and the celebration. The team mates and US team officials look like the near killed poor Landon Donovan with that big pile up on the ground.
    USA : One, Algeria: Zero and they top the group.

    Nice goal in the end, now lets hope they can get through (most likely) Germany.

    If Germany wins this afternoon, they will face England and the US will face the #2 team in Group D.

    I'm just relieved the outcome does not turn on the whim of an official again.

    Fine effort.

    This feels great.

    I feel so bad for the French fans. Tell me what that nation did to deserve that nightmare? Nothing. But, please try and put that behind you for a moment here and there, French TDPRI'ers, and come over and pull for the USA this year!!

    It's payback for all those years of idolizing Jerry Lewis.
