World Cup: US vs. Algeria's Jewish goaltender (updated)

The Algerian goaltender in the US/Algeria game being played right now is Raïs M'Bohli, who I mentioned last month was being slammed by Algerian fans for not being a real Algerian - because his Algerian mother is Jewish and he was raised in France.

So far, he has made some nice saves.

UPDATE:  The US won, no signs of any riots, M'Bohli did an excellent job, and he denies being Jewish.
