USA v. Algeria is going on right now.  I can't watch it, but I tuned in here to see a running commentary.  At the 89 minute mark, it was a 0-0 draw.


Then USA scored at the 91 minute mark.


Also in the C group, England is playing Slovania at the same time.  England is up 1-0.

ONE MINUTE LATER:  It's over.  England won 1-0.  So did USA.  So both of them advance. You're going to be hearing a lot about Landon Donovan….  This moment in sports will be talked about for years to come….

UPDATE:  The Internets go kablooey

The dramatic ending to the World Cup match between the U.S. and Algeria on Wednesday could set a new record for internet traffic…..

In the minutes following Landon Donovan's game winning goal in the 91st minute of action (which sent the US to the round of 16), traffic spiked to 11.2 million visitors per minute, which move the event past the 2008 presidential election as the second highest traffic day of all-time.

The World Cup news knocked Yahoo Sports offline and caused issues at Twitter.
