NORWALK - Some Norwalk residents were glued to their television sets today as they rooted for Team USA in the World Cup tournament.

Team USA faced elimination today, but didn't disappoint fans when it beat Algeria 1-0.

Fans at Black Bear Saloon in South Norwalk say the game was a nail-biter down to the very end.

Team USA appeared to have scored early in the game, but the goal was disallowed. The game remained scoreless until Landon Donovan scored 45 seconds into stoppage time.

Team USA is set to face Ghana on Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
