Win and we're in

It's really quite simple: If Koman Coulibaly hadn't screwed up and if the USA's central defenders hadn't fallen asleep in the first half, the United States wouldn't be in this situation. But they are. It all comes down to one game. Again. With their backs against the wall, the USA men's soccer team only has to beat Algeria, and they'll qualify for the knock-out stage of the World Cup for the first time since 2002. (If they get to that point, it's wide open as to who they'll play. Serbia? Ghana? Germany? Australia? Don't know, that group is just as wide open as this one.)
