More on that and other matters in our match report.

A historical triumph for U.S. soccer

Posted on 23 June 2010 by Nathaniel E. Baker

The U.S. Men’s National Team defeated their Algerian counterparts 1-0 in a test of wills that went down to the final moments at Pretoria Wednesday afternoon. With the dramatic victory, the U.S. capture Group C and advance to the round of 16 at the 2010 World Cup. The game has unleashed a tirade of superlatives, with no less an authority than U.S. Soccer Federation president Sunil Gulati calling it “the most important win in the history of U.S. soccer.”

The winning goal came off the boot of Landon Donovan, for whom the victory was particularly emotional. Read his reaction and more in the ASN match report.

Dempsey: “We had three goals”

Posted on 20 June 2010 by ASN Staff

ASN snagged this exclusive and, it turns out unauthorized, interview with Clint Dempsey in the “mixed zone” at Ellis Park Stadium immediately following the U.S. Men’s National Team’s 2-2 draw with Slovenia on Friday. Enjoy the video, because it turns out we ran afoul of FIFA ordinances when shooting it–an infraction that earned us a healthy tongue-lashing from the FIFA official in charge. Continue to the story here.

U.S. still with everything to play for after comeback draw v Slovenia

Posted on 18 June 2010 by ASN Staff

Michael Bradley’s goal eight minutes from time drew the U.S. Men’s National Team level with Slovenia on Friday afternoon at Ellis Park Stadium in Johannesburg. The goal capped a furious comeback from a 2-0 halftime deficit and leaves the U.S. in control of its own destiny; a two goal victory over Algeria on Wednesday will put the Yanks through to the round of 16 regardless of what happens in other Group C games. But really, this game should have gone down as a 3-2 victory. The Yanks were robbed by a phantom foul call on, well, nobody knows exactly. We’ve got video of Carlos Bocanegra’s reaction in the mixed zone and more so click here now!

Who the *** is Andrej Komac?

Posted on 16 June 2010 by ASN Staff

As you’ve probably heard by now, Slovenian midfielder Andrej Komac has guaranteed victory over the U.S. national team in Friday’s clash between the two Group C foes. That’s nice of him to provide motivation to the U.S. players. Surely with this being only a World Cup game they can use the extra spark. Read the story here.
