For the third time in the 2010 FIFA World Cup, the Yanks have shown their relentlessness and heart in a thrilling 1-0 victory over Algeria.
In the 91st minute of a scoreless, captivating match, Landon Donovan, Clint Dempsey, and Jozy Altidore made an incredible run leading to Donovan's game-winning goal.
The USA team is neither a glorified powerhouse like Brazil, which features Maicon and Luis Fabiano, nor are they considered a true threat like Uraguay, which is led by a contender for Player of the Tournament, Diego Forlan.
However, as underdogs with two come-from-behind matches thus far in the tournament, the USA has sent a message to their competitors:
They are not going home without a fight.
