Landon Donovan’s goal in extra time lifted the U.S. to a dramatic 1-0 win over Algeria on Wednesday, sending the U.S. on to the second round of the World Cup for just the third time in history.

The options were clear for the U.S. entering the game: Win and go on, or lose and go home. And that’s not a scenario the U.S. has had success with, never having won a third game in a World Cup, going 0-7 while being outscored 20-6.
