“I’ve been through a lot in the last four years,” Donovan said with tears in his eyes. “And I’m so glad it culminated this way. It makes me believe in good in the world. When you try to do things the right way, that’s good to see them get rewarded.” – Landon Donovan

WORLD CUP â€“ KEEPING THEM HONEST!
There were no two thoughts about this!
Watching the earlier US game I felt that everything seemed to go against them.
There was no doubt in my mind that that idiot of a referee stole the US victory the other day and to make matters worst a linesman this time disallowed another goal on Wednesday!
The football mafia must be hard at work with millions in bets awaiting and some paying the black economy millions to make certain some teams win not by skills or being the better team but by the decision of those who have sold out the game!
As such â€“ I realized watching the game with my family and praying hard for a victory for the US Team â€“ not that I knew any of them but I felt a strange strong feeling of comradeship with the US Team and by far with this young man called Landon Donovan!
He was a great figure for the US for all things fair and right!
So there was just 3 1/2 minutes left in their World Cup and in one of the most stunning turnarounds in World Cup history, Landon Donovan scored on a lightning fast counterattack 45 seconds into 4 minutes of injury time.
With that the United States beat Algeria 1-0 and reached the World Cup’s second round!
But what touched me and I am certain the millions who watched the press conference post match by this young man was his faith, sincerity and truthfulness!
He was in tears and even 30 minutes later his eyes watered and voice cracked as he talked about the goal.
But this caught me as I am certain it did others:
“I’ve been through a lot in the last four years,” Donovan said with tears in his eyes. “And I’m so glad it culminated this way. It makes me believe in good in the world. When you try to do things the right way, that’s good to see them get rewarded.”
I am certain there is a hidden message in there for all and sundry in the world, even the mafia who are manipulating international sports and to us Malaysians!
