9. In injury time, Landon Donovan scored the sole goal in USA's June 23 match against Algeria. (Two USA goals made our best-of list? Well what do
you expect from a US publication!) With three minutes remaining, the US needed a goal or else it was going home. Donovan dribbled up the middle,
passed right to Clint Dempsey, who passed back to Edson Buddle in the middle. Buddle tripped over Algeria goalkeeper Rais Bolhi as he blocked the
shot, but he lost control of the ball, and Donovan was sprinting toward it with all US hopes pushing him forward. He grounded it into the left side of the net. "Time kind of stopped," the feisty midfielder said afterward.
