The USA won its group at the FIFA World Cup for the first time since 1930 (that's 80 years ago), and for first time ever in a four-team group. The win marked the first point and win for the U.S. in the third group game at the FIFA World Cup in eight tries.
It was the first time the USA has gone unbeaten in Group play during a World Cup.
Landon Donovan’s fourth FIFA World Cup goal ties him with Bert Patenaude (all in the 1930 World Cup) for most by a U.S. player in a career.
It was also Donovan's 11th career World Cup appearance, tying him for first on the all-time list with Cobi Jones and Earnie Stewart.
Also, could you imagine before the World Cup started that England would score as many goals in the first round as the USA had (unfairly, we think) disallowed? Amazing.
