Three Years Ago Today: Landon Donovan Puts USA in World Cup 2nd Round
That goal sparked a jubilant celebration all throughout the country, and punched the United States's ticket into the knockout round of the World Cup.
Three years later, and things are different for the US Men's National Team. There's a new coach in Jurgen Klinsmann. Donovan took a break from soccer, and while he's back in MLS, has yet to return to the national team. Clint Dempsey has become the national team's best player, while Jozy Altidore's goal streak indicates he may be ready to become the team's go-to scorer. Overall, things mostly look good for Team USA, as they sit atop the CONCACAF qualifying group and are in good shape to qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
Today though, we remember one of the best moments in American soccer history.
