The U.S. has moved on to the second round of the FIFA World Cup for just the third time in history following a dramatic 1-0 win against Algeria on Wednesday. U.S. player Landon Donovan was the hero of the game, scoring the winning goal just after the game entered extra time.
U.S. soccer player Landon Donovan was reportedly in tears after the U.S. win over Algeria. “It’s been a long journey… and I’m shocked, and so proud of our guys. We kept going and we believed,” Donovan said, according to ESPN.com. “People that know me closest know I’ve worked so hard for this moment. It’s unbelievable. I know people back home will be watching – we’re not done yet.
The win for the United States means the team finishes on top of the World Cup Group C. The U.S. will play against the Group D runner-up on Saturday.
England also won their match against Slovenia, but placed second in Group C behind the U.S.
