June 29, 1950
World Cup, Group Stage, Brazil (Belo Horizonte)
USA vs. England
37' Joe Gaetjen
The experienced England team was favored in 500-1 over the amateur group of Americans who had been hastily put together as a team for the World Cup. Though England dominated the game, the US scored the lone goal in the 37th minute with a shot from Walter Bahr deflecting just enough off of a diving Joe Gaetjen's head to put the ball to the left of the keeper and in to the back of the net. 

June 22, 1994
World Cup, Group Stage, Group A, USA (Los Angeles)
USA vs. Colombia
52' Ernie Stewart
Facing off in the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles, the USA team upset Colombia, a favorite to win the '94 World Cup. An early own-goal by Colombia put the US up 1-0, but Ernie Stewart put the game out of reach in the 52nd minute, slicing through the Colombia defense to score on a well-placed through ball from Tab Ramos.

June 17, 2002
World Cup, Round of 16, South Korea (Jeonju)
USA vs. Mexico
7' Brian McBride
This is when 'Dos a Cero' took full flight, USA knocked out Mexico 2 to nothing. Brian McBride had an early goal in the 7th minute off an assist from Josh Wolff following a blazing run from Claudio Reyna. Mexico never recovered and Landon Donovan put the game away in the 64th minute off a cross from Eddie Lewis. 

June 23, 2010
World Cup, Group Stage, Group C, South Africa (Pretoria)
USA vs. Algeria
91' Landon Donovan
The US needed a win against Algeria to advance out of the group stage. They had two draws and another draw would not be good enough to go on. Win the game and win the group. Draw and go home. 90 minutes went by without either team scoring a goal. With 4 minutes of extra time put up on the board Landon Donovan led a breakaway attack, passing to Jozy Altidore who took a shot from the edge of the box with Dempsey closing in on the goalie. The Algerian goalie deflected and Dempsey was too far past to recover and strike when Donovan sliced in from center field to put the ball in the back of the net.
