Donovan: United States can beat anyone at World Cup

American striker Landon Donovan told CNN the U.S. can "beat anyone" after his injury-time goal helped the side qualify from the group stages of the 2010 World Cup on Wednesday.

Donovan, who plays for Major League Soccer side the Los Angeles Galaxy, struck with only seconds left of the game to seal a 1-0 win over Algeria and put the U.S. top of Group C above fellow last-16 qualifiers England.

The Americans will now face Ghana, who finished second in Group D, on Saturday in Rustenburg in a last-16 knockout game.

"We believe we can beat any team in this tournament. Given our experiences from last year [at the Confederations Cup] we think we can do really big things, we're going to go for it," the 28-year-old told CNN.
