For those of you who have yet to see Landon Donovan's extra-time, game-winning goal against Algeria, it looked like this: U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard stops an Algerian shot, outlets a long pass to Donovan, who is on the move. He carries the ball deep into Algerian territory, then passes to his right flank to Jozy Altidore. Altidore crosses into the Algerian box, where the ball, Clint Dempsey and Algeria's keeper arrive at the same instant. The keeper stops Dempsey's attempt, but the ball rolls to his right.

DETROIT - Jozy Altidore scored in the first half and set up Clint Dempsey's goal in the second, and the United States opened its Gold Cup schedule with a 2-0 win over Canada last night. The 21-year-old Altidore was playing his first game in a Gold Cup, which is the championship of North and Central America and the Caribbean. His goal in the 15th minute put the U.S. ahead, and Dempsey added one in the 62nd off a nice cross from Altidore. The U.S. bounced back after losing, 4-0, to World Cup champion Spain in an exhibition game Saturday.

FRESH OFF his first win as U.S. Soccer's latest head coach, Jurgen Klinsmann and the Americans will go for their second tonight against Ecuador. It took four matches, but Klinsmann, named U.S. coach in August, earned his first win with a 1-0 victory over Honduras at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami on Saturday. Now the U.S. (5-6-3 overall) makes its first trip to Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J., to face Ecuador (7:30 p.m., ESPN2, Univision). Ecuador is the tiny South American nation where U.S. ace goalkeeper Tim Howard collected his first cap and where he earned his first international shutout.

In Seville, Rafael Nadal rallied to top Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro , 1-6, 6-4, 6-1, 7-6 (0) on Sunday to give Spain its fifth Davis Cup title and third in four years. "To win a final this way is very special," said Nadal, a 10-time major champion who won the title for the third time of his career. Nadal stretched his record on clay to 16-0 with a 20th straight Davis Cup victory as Argentina remained the only nation to play in four finals and never win one. SOCCER: Stanford's Teresa Noyola scored from point-blank range in the 53d minute and the top-ranked Cardinal beat No. 3 Duke, 1-0, to win the women's College Cup in Kennesaw, Ga. Brazil great Socrates , the clever playmaking midfielder who captained his country's 1982 World Cup, died of septic shock in Sao Paulo.

IRENE, South Africa - After Clint Dempsey extrapolated on the physical adventure that occurs "inside the box" on set pieces such as the one leading to Friday afternoon's now-infamous nullified goal, forward Jozy Altidore was asked if he had anything to add. Dempsey had spoken of the difference in physicality between club and international play, the supposed pretournament focus on eliminating in-box grappling during the World Cup, and the mentality...

Texas football coach Mack Brown and athletic director DeLoss Dodds announced that first-year defensive coordinator Will Muschamp will be signed to a new long-term deal that not only keeps him in his current role, but also designates him as Brown's successor. Muschamp, 37, had been linked to openings at Clemson, Tennessee and Washington among others. He held jobs at Louisiana State and with the Miami Dolphins under Nick Saban (now at No. 1 Alabama), and spent a season as Auburn's defensive coordinator before Brown hired him at Texas.

Jozy Altidore became the youngest American to score an international hat trick, and the United States beat Trinidad and Tobago, 3-0, last night in Nashville in the final round of qualifying for next year's soccer World Cup. Making just his fourth international start, the 19-year-old Altidore connected in the 13th, 71st and 89th minutes, all three times on passes from Landon Donovan. The forward from Livingston, N.J., broke a record set in 2004, when Eddie Johnson, 20, scored three times against Panama.

Kim Clijsters is out for up to 6 weeks after tearing a muscle in her left foot during a Fed Cup singles match Saturday in Brussels, Belgium. The injury forced her to pull out of yesterday's reverse singles in the best-of-five series against Estonia, and casts doubt on whether the U.S. Open champion will be able to play in next month's French Open. "When the doctor tells you 6 weeks, then you start panicking. You think of your season's planning," she told VRT network. The year's second Grand Slam tournament starts in 4 weeks, on May 23, but Clijsters is hoping that intensive treatment will shorten the estimated 6-week rehabilitation.

Webb Simpson chipped in from 35 yards in front of the par-4 eighth green for eagle, and then made Tiger Woods shake his head and smile when he holed a 60-foot birdie putt at the Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte, N.C. It led to a 7-under 65 for a share of the lead on Thursday with Stewart Cink and Ryan Moore at Quail Hollow - about one mile from Simpson's home. Woods failed to take advantage of fine weather conditions - about one-quarter of the field shot in the 60s, and half broke par. In his first tournament since a tie for 40th at the Masters - his worst performance as a pro at Augusta - Woods made too many mistakes early and had to one-putt three of the last four greens for a 71. Former PGA Championship winner Shaun Micheel is hoping a new putter will help end a nine-year winless drought after a 5-under 67 at the 100th Spanish Open.

IT'S 48 hours before the U.S. national team sets out on its road to redemption, eager to feed off the momentum of the present, but more importantly, out to right the wrongs of the past. The Stars and Stripes have a chance to make a statement halfway around the world beginning Saturday when the 19th installment of the FIFA World Cup kicks off in South Africa. It will be the ninth chapter of this event for the United States - call 2010 a proverbial clean slate for a team still shadowed by a dismal 2006 campaign.

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - Robbie Findley sounded quiet, slightly unsure, as he leaned into the microphone and answered only the questions directly asked of him, and nothing more. Findley's reserve was understandable. He was sitting next to World Cup veterans: goalkeeper Tim Howard and defender Steve Cherundolo. In such company, deference was easy. But given the possible shift in the U.S. team's attacking scheme - presumed starting forward Jozy Altidore sprained his right ankle during Thursday's training - Findley's speedy, attacking game could move him from the bench to the starting lineup.
