|Donovan's goal puts USA through|
Algeria is now eliminated.
|Pretoria, South Africa (Sports Network) - The United States completed its FIFA World Cup group stage with a 1-0 win over Algeria on Wednesday at Loftus Versfeld Stadium thanks to a 91st-minute winner from Landon Donovan.|
With the U.S. pressing, needing the win to advance to the second round, a counter-attacking goal by Donovan in second-half stoppage time put the Americans through.
U.S. striker Jozy Altidore crossed to Clint Dempsey on the odd-man rush. After the Fulham attacker's shot from in tight was stuffed by goalkeeper Rais M'Bolhi, the ball was left lying in the six-yard box for Donovan to sweep in for the game-winner. continue>>
