The 10-year Anniversary of Landon Donovan’s WonderStrike vs Algeria

The 10-year Anniversary of Landon Donovan’s WonderStrike vs Algeria

Do you remember where you were when LD scored against Algeria?

Ten years ago today, Landon Donovan wasn’t the head coach for San Diego Loyal Soccer Club.

No, ten years ago today, Landon Donovan was the hero that America needed.

Do you remember where you were?

I was watching this game at the Bowling Alley on a US Naval Base. Soccer friends were hosting a World Cup watch party. I still remember the TVs swaying from their ceiling mounts because the building absolutely erupted when LD put this goal in the back of the net and saved America.

If this video (the “Rudy” sountrack is chef’s kiss perfect) doesn’t give you chills, you need to check your pulse.

See you July 11th, LD!
