Needing a win over Algeria to win the Group, the U.S. scored a goal in stoppage time of its contest thanks to a Landon Donovan rebound shot that gave the Americans a 1-0 win and first place in the group.

USA had 4/1 odds to win the group according to the online sports book which means a $100 bet on the U.S. will pay out $400.

The U.S. actually tied England with five points in the group but more goals scored for USA (4) than England (2) in group play allowed the Americans to get the top spot.

England defeated Slovenia 1-0 in its final game to earn the second spot into the round of 16 tournament. The English had struggled all tournament until breaking through with a win on Wednesday.
