06.18.10 USA's Win Stolen by Ref

The USA game was crazy against Slovenia and ended tied 2-2.  In the first half, the USA was down 0-2 and looked terrible.  In the second half they fought back strong.  Donovan and then Bradley scored to tie it up.  At the very end of the game, a penalty kick and shot by Jozy Altidore completed the 3rd and final goal to clinch USA's win...but referee Koman Coulibaly from Africa called a foul on someone (although he would never say who) and declared the goal null.  Throughout the entire game, this referee made TERRIBLE calls and ultimately cost the USA the game.  In this photo, Landon Donovan scores his team's first goal at Ellis Park Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa.
