Chris Wondolowski had a chance to etch his name into U.S. Soccer history, but skied a point-blank chance into row Z in the last minute of regulation vs. Belgium. The game is headed to extra time. There was some confusion in the aftermath whether or not the linesman flag was up for offside. (Imagine the storm of outrage if the goal was waved off?)
Hours later it was confirmed that the goal would have stood.
For those still of the belief Wondo's gack was offside, official FIFA documents report USA had zero offside calls against.—

Maybe we’ll remember this as the moment all of America yelled some variant of “$&*#@@%$” at the same time.
