Prior to the fixture starting, Fulham`s Clint Dempsey had spoken about the possibility of settling any nerves with an early goal.

If that was the plan it went hideously wrong as, despite battering Algeria, the USA had to wait until injury time, in the second half, to get that vital winner that guaranteed them top spot.

But it should be pointed out that it was something akin to a miracle that Algeria held them at bay for so long with Clint having a good goal disallowed for offside in the first half and in the second he saw a lovely curling shot hit the post before he smashed the rebound high and wide.

Could the USA team emulate the success they had in the Confederations Cup last summer, if Clint has his way they could well do!
