Will The Success Of Team USA Soccer Mean Anything For The USA......

Today, history was made in South Africa as dramatic as anything in professional sports. For the first time since 1930, the United States won a group in a World Cup. The tension was monumental as the United States (0-0-2) needed a win to advance and yet through 90 minutes of play could not find the back of the net. Then on a last gasp rush to the net with a four on two breakaway, Landon Donovan (who most would consider the face of US Soccer) was simply in the right place at the right time striking a goal off a rebound to send the US to the next round.

So as with every other sport, what does the success of the US Soccer team in Johannesburg, South Africa do for the sport in their own home country?
