This game will determine if we move on. There are a few ways for the USA to advance to the knock out round of sixteen, but the best thing that can happen is if the USA wins the game outright. Nadir Belhadj is the man to watch and will be Landon's toughest competition in the tournament at this point. They can't start out slow and give up an early goal as they usually do in the World Cup or Algeria will play defense the rest of the way.

One of the most important games in United States soccer history kicks off today. In one 90-minute outing, the Americans will either make years of build-up and hype worth it, or crumble under the weight of the nation’s expectations for yet another World Cup.

Anyway, let's go Landon Donovan and Co. The game is on ESPN at 6:30 am EST.

Can you help us out?
