Seldom have U.S. Soccer fans been able to truly band together to witness those seminal moments in the 103-year history on the men's side.

If you're a historian, Joe Gaetjens' iconic goal to lift the Americans over the almighty England in the 1950 World Cup may come to mind. Almost 40 years later, Paul Caligiuri's "Shot Heard 'Round The World" would go on to set the precedent for the next 25 years of groundbreaking growth in the country's soccer interest.

But in terms of modern history, neither hold a candle to what ensued at Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria six years ago today, when Landon Donovan's last-gasp winner catapulted a then-Bob Bradley led side past Algeria and into the Round of 16 at the 2010 World Cup.

Within 10 seconds, the Americans sprung from one end of the field to the other. Tim Howard's lengthy throw into the path of a marauding Donovan sparked the move, before Jozy Altidore squared for Clint Dempsey in the box and the ball fell to the U.S.'s all-time leading scorer. The rest? History.

And it's safe to say we all remember where we were when it happened.

Let it live long in the memory.
