I don’t know much about football, soccer, the beautiful game, whatever you want to call it. But dang the US-Algeria match was one of the best sporting events I’ve ever witnessed. Needing a win to advance, because of England’s 1-0 win over Slovenia, the US scored the game’s only goal in the 91st minute.
