The United States men's soccer team beat out the New Orleans Saints' Super Bowl triumph, Phil Mickelson's Masters win and the bronze-medal performance of Joannie Rochette (Canadian figure skater who lost her mother during the 2010 Olympic Games) to win the Best Moment award at last night's ESPY awards.

Landon Donovan's World Cup-saving goal in stoppage time against Algeria was nominated along with the others. The win marked the team's second straight year bringing home an award after it won for Best Upset in 2009 for defeating top-ranked Spain in the Confederations Cup.
