Ghana, Algeria to Cup of Nations semis

So much for Algeria being a walkover in the World Cup, right?

That was surely the opponent USMNT fans were most optimistic about in the W.C. draw aftermath. Now considering a 3-2 defeat of tournament-favorite Cote d'Ivoire in the quarterfinals, that confidence is waddling (widdling? wavering? something like that).

On the other side of the bracket, Ghana got by Angola with a workmanlike 1-0 decision.

Down to six...
