The U.S. national team's 1-0 victory over Algeria was made a little more magical on Wednesday, as it received the award for Best Moment at the ESPYs.

Several U.S. national team players were in attendance at the award ceremony in Los Angeles to witness their World Cup win outdo the New Orleans Saints' Super Bowl victory, Phil Mickelson's win of the Masters and figure skater Joannie Rochette's bronze-medal performance in the Olympics. 

The award marked the second consecutive year that the U.S. team won an ESPY. The U.S. national team won Best Upset last year for its 2-0 defeat over Spain in the Confederations Cup. 

Landon Donovan also claimed two other awards on Wednesday night. Donovan won the Castrol Performance Under Pressure award for his goal against Algeria, while also receiving the Best MLS Player award.
