|Landon Donovan steps up and scores from the penalty spot. His shot glancing in off the post. To think about what a huge and pressure shot this is? Incredible. Take a look at Donovan’s pk versus Ghana.
It was Dempsey who earned the penalty after nutmegging the first Ghana defender and pushing the ball past the next defender. Dempsey just had an enormous game. He was always looking for the soccer ball and very active when he got it.
The United States had plenty of chances to score, from Findley in the first half to Altidore on the break to Benny Feilhaber, who should have slotted the ball home with his left foot instead of trying to beat the keeper with the outside of his right. Really, the Ghana goalkeeper came up big on numerous occasions.
Here’s the goal and some fans reactions after Donovan scores.
