Now 1:10 shows Landon Donovan reading the “England In Roo-Ins” article. The USA captain smiles at England and Wayne Rooney’s fate. Tim Howard is besides Landon Donovan.
This sharp image tells it all, and surely, anyone could have predicted the outcome of the USA vs Algeria game. Notices go as follows:
1) Tim Howard, USA’s goalkeeper, represents the clean sheet USA had against Algeria
2) Landon Donovan is the player who stood out as his country’s hero with an injury time goal against Algeria.
3) Landon Donovan smiles and closes the newspaper he is holding. The smile certainly stands for his joy at having accomplished his task by firing USA on top of Group C at the expense of group winners favorites England, who lost out on goal difference due to their poor form in front of goal.
The closing of the newspaper certainly explains how Donovan’s goal sealed the outcome of Group C. He closes the newspaper, just like he closed Match-day Three in Group C with a very late goal.
If Edu and Clint Dempsey’s clean goals against Slovenia and Algeria, respectively, got wrongly and inexplicably disallowed, it was certainly for one reason: to let play maker Landon Donovan fulfill what has been written already by putting the USA through to the knock-out stage thanks to his effort against Les Fennecs of Algeria.
When the Algerians were hanging onto a draw with less than a minute of normal time remaining, many American fans certainly felt that their team would suffer a controversial early exit from the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
But anyone who had understood this video, like I did, would have comfortably been on his/her chair, and just waiting for Landon Donovan’s moment to arrive and thus fulfill the predictions of Nike Football ‘Write The Future’ Ad.
