Don't know why we are all celebrating, our inability to score a second goal means we've got not muhc chance in the second round and absolutely no chance of making it past the quarters.
Yeah, had we finished top then we'd have looked like getting Uruguay/Korea in the quarters?
Now it's Argentina.

Yep, 2 goals in 3 games could well come back to haunt them - probably Germany next up now, with Argentina to follow.

Great stuff from the US. Great it was Donovan to score too - like the way he plays and seems to be a decent guy (also admit he's one of only a couple of US players would have recognised before the tournament).

Justice served.

Job done by England, even if a little flat. Happy for US for no other reason than it made a lot of my friends happy. My facebook going crazy right now.

Donovan after the game on Ref decisions "We embody what Americans are all about. We can moan about it or we can get on with it and we kept going" SS clearly not American then :)

That group is crazy. Any 2 of the 4 teams can go through. As long as you qualify, you will be happy from group D.

Yup - with all three of our unholy trinity missing gilt-edged chances.

Still, better than going out. They weren't great, but they were competent, which has to be progress. Milner looked very much like our best bet on the right. Upson looked 100% better than Carragher, which is hardly surprising given that he played alongside Terry in a fair few of the qualifiers iirc. No-one will be worrying about facing us though.

The US march on in the World Series Soccer Trophy with a netbuster by offensive soccerman Landon Donovan.

Will it be us or them that meets the Germans in Round 2? Well unfortunately the US has a history of avoiding early confrontations with our German friends and leaving the job up to us instead.

Go Ghana.

US is ranked 14th in the world, so they are not bad. Uruguay too have a real chance. Agree that it is a weak section.

The minute that Algerian player didn't capitalse on the header, and the US goalie immediately threw the ball, you got the feeling USA were going to have a chance on the counter.

Top goal.
