The U.S. just had an spectacular last-minute win over Algeria, which means we're going to the next round! But more on that later. First, in our ongoing study of the perfection of athleticism, a look back on yesterday's best moments.
(Above is South Africa's Siphiwe Tshabalala. They eventually
lost to beat France, but you won't see any of those guys here. The gams of Gauls are not what we'd immediately consider championship-grade.)
Sergio Guero, of Argentina — this is what people are talking about when they say "world class."
Uruguay's Edinson Cavani may want to take down Pablo Barrera of Mexico, but Pablo's quads aren't having it.
In the match against South Korea, Kalu Uche of Nigeria was credited with the first goal. Score, indeed.
