Looking Back at Landon Donovan's Goal vs. Algeria
For those that missed it earlier, Los Angeles Galaxy forward Landon Donovan officially announced his retirement via Facebook.
Donovan will call it quits on his career at the end of the season, and will leave as one of the most decorated players in American soccer history.
But without question, Donovan's most memorable moment came four years ago in South Africa when the United States had its back against the wall in the team's final group match against Algeria.
Needing a goal to advance through to the group stage, it was Donovan who found himself in the right place at the right time. What happened next is a moment that will never be forgotten in U.S. soccer history, as his goal allowed the Americans to top the group.
For those that witnessed it live or on television, it's a moment that you'll never forget. You'll always remember where you were when the reliable No. 10 sent the Americans through to the Round of 16.
American soccer fans couldn't have asked for a better outcome.
The United States scoring a miracle goal to best the perceived favorite England in the group? It truly was the perfect combination.
Donovan had plenty of memorable moments throughout his career, as he was one of the few household names in American soccer. His play for the Galaxy and Men's National Team was always a pleasure to watch, even if it didn't end on the best of notes when he was left off this year's World Cup squad.
But that will never erase the memories of Donovan's single greatest moment of glory in Pretoria.
