Lan­don lands an in­jury time win­ner

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Classifieds -

USA......................................................... 1 AL­GE­RIA................................................. 0 Lan­don dono­van struck an in­jury-time win­ner as the United States sen­sa­tion­ally pro­gressed through to the last 16 of the World Cup with a de­served win over al­ge­ria.

The United States, watched on by for­mer Pres­i­dent Bill Clin­ton, dom­i­nated for large pe­ri­ods and cre­ated a host of chances but looked set to be de­nied by a mix­ture of the wood­work, good goal­keep­ing and poor fin­ish­ing.

How­ever, dono­van popped up right at the end to slot into the net to send the amer­i­cans through as Group C win­ners ahead of Eng­land.

For al­ge­ria, who have never pro­gressed to the last 16 of the World Cup, they hit the wood­work early on and cre­ated a cou­ple of other chances but were un­able to net their first goal of the fi­nals as they tum­bled out.

They also fin­ished with 10 men af­ter cap­tain an­thar Yahia was sent off for a sec­ond yel­low.
