[VIDEO PICK: The Golazo] O beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain, for purple mountain majesties, above the fruited plain, America, America, whose fans were never quite the same, after a minor miracle three years ago saw our freedom reign.

It wasn’t the prettiest goal in U.S. history, nor did it come against a world power, but there can be little doubt Landon Donovan’s last-gasp stunner to beat Algeria, which sent the USA into the knockout stages of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, was the most memorable goal in American soccer history.

Soccer America would like to wish our readers a Happy Fourth of July, please celebrate safely, while reminding future generations how you came to fall in love with this beautiful game ...

    "the most memorable goal in American soccer history" I think not. That would be Abby Wambach's 122nd minute goal v. Brazil in the last World Cup, closely followed by Alex Morgan's 123rd minute goal v. Canada in the Olympics. Donovan's goal was fantastic, but just not the most memorable. Soccer America needs to pay way more attention to the WNT.

    John, it's just a personal preference. there are so many memorable goals in US soccer history. Add to the three above, Chastain's PK '99, Caligiuri's goal '89, Stewart's goal '94. They can be up there too.

    I would love to see a compilation of all of these.

    Gus - excellent observation. Valerie - superb idea ! Maybe US Soccer will take notice.

    Never get tired of this clip. I'd had Tab Ramos' goal v. Costa Rica in Portland to the list.
