Breakfast of Champions

Posted By on Wed, Jun 23, 2010 at 1:04 PM

The United States is advancing to the second round of the World Cup.

Forward Landon Donovan scored the winning goal in the 91st minute of play to defeat Algeria 1-0 in one of the biggest goals in U.S. soccer history. It's the first World Cup win in eight years for the United States. The team also won their group (C) for first time since 1930. Fans filled Boise's Ha'Penny Bridge Pub early today for a breakfast of eggs, bacon, Guinness and big-screen action.


You won't need to play hooky to watch the next game, presuming you don't work weekends. Team USA takes on the runner-up from group D this Saturday morning. That could be Ghana, Germany or Serbia. Game time: 12:30 p.m. mountain daylight time.
