Happy Anniversary: Landon Donovan beats Algeria at the 2010 World Cup

Algeria needed a win to advance and they still played for a draw.

Those bastards.

The United States was going home from the 2010 World Cup, in the group stage just like they did four years earlier. 2002 was so far away.

Howard, gratefully claims it. Distribution brilliant.

Landon Donovan, there are things on here for the USA. Can they do it here?

Cross, and Dempsey is denied again.

BUT DONOVAN HAS SCORED.

Oh, can you believe this? GO, GO, USA!

Pandemonium.

Holy crap.

What just happened?

The United States was going to the knockout stages. The United States had won their group.

Happy Landon Donovan Day, America.
