But despite the fact that the US still controls their own destiny, the loss... I mean tie... still stings. If only there was a paper out there that could sum up the feelings of indignation still prevalent among the soccer-watching public. Maybe with a bold headline and powerful action shot of what could have been?
Oh, it stings! The US' next game (and most important in its history?) will be on Wednesday, against an Algerian team that was originally thought to be the weakest in the group, but tied England in their last match. The implications are quite simple for the American side: Win and they're in to the knockout stage of the Cup.
A loss, however, would mean instant elimination, and a colossal disappointment for a team that had high hopes coming into this World Cup. It would also be the final deathblow for Koman Coulibaly's planned vacation to the United States.
