Watch an animated version of Landon Donovan's 2010 World Cup goal vs. Algeria

New, comments

Go go, U-S-A!

It has been nearly four years since Landon Donovan came running in late to knock home a rebound, beat Algeria and put the United States into the round of 16 at the World Cup. And somehow, it took until now for someone to animate it.

We, as a country, failed. We did not take it upon ourselves to turn the greatest moment in world history* and animate it. Luckily, Lawrence Becker did. He is a hero and should be treated as such.

You will notice that Donovan has significantly more hair in animation than in real life. As it should be. Now if someone could just sync this up to Ian Darke's call, everything would be right in the world.

* A slight exaggeration. SLIGHT.
