world cup 2010: usa lose to ghana
The US team lost to Ghana 2-1 in their knockout round World Cup match. It was fierce at times, but fatigue and wear and tear were obviously taking a toll on the Yanks. It was only Wednesday when Landon Donovan boldly won the match for the US in stoppage time against Algeria. The soccer gods blessed the team that night... but you can only cruise with their blessings for so long. 32 teams enter into the World Cup... 31 leave with hearts broken.
Our hearts are broken. But the US team played bravely, honorably, and will no doubt improve on this inspiring World Cup run.
