PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) - Landon Donovan scored in the first minute of stoppage time off a rebound, advancing the United States to the second round at the World Cup with a 1-0 win over Algeria.

With the U.S. perhaps three minutes from elimination, Jozy Altidore was stopped on a breakaway by goalkeeper Rais Bolihi.

Donovan hustled in and kicked in the rebound to win Group C Wednesday.
