USA Slovenia World Cup Controversy

Koman Coulibaly did not have his best day today as the referee of the USA Slovenia World Cup Soccer Match in South Africa. Koman Coulibaly disallowed the go ahead goal which would have given the US team an amazing 3-2 win. The USA soccer team fail behind 2-0 in the first half to a Slovenia team that showed it may be the toughest of the group. But a furious second half comeback led by Landon Donovan and Michael Bradley had victory within reach. Then the goal that wasn't by Michael Edu was waived off by the referee denying the US a 3-2 lead.

Its always a trick situation to blame the refs. The refs did not shoot the rocket that gave Slovenia (we too had to map Slovenia) the 1-0 lead shortly after the start of the match. The match was exciting and intense with many yellow cards going to Slovenia. But some clear fouls were not called at all. On the controversial goal in question the call on the field was not clear. There was not an offside on the play. And the replay actually show Michael Bradley been held in the box which should have resulted in a penalty kick. Referee's miss calls all the time and it seems like Koman missed that call.

The Americans must now regroup not dwell on the Slovenia match and prepare for Algeria. There last match of the group and perhaps this World Cup.
