Maybe it's no fun to think of sports as a series of random events determined partly by the skill and moxie of the competitors but so often by luck and judgment (or maybe that randomness is the very appeal of sports).

Regardless, if you would have complained about the penalty that ultimately led to the winning goal for the U.S. had it happened the other way around, it is fair (perhaps even essential) to acknowledge the tremendous break as a gift.

It is nothing that needs an apology attached to it. You get or overcome breaks. You win or lose as a result. That's sports.
