On June 18, 2010 The United States of America played Slovenia in the 2nd game of the world cup in south africa. The US was down 2 to 0 at one point in the game. The United States came back and tied up the game. They also scored a third goal which was taken back by the referee Koman Coulibaly and the ball was given to Slovenia. Many people feel that this was one of the worst calls in the history of the World Cup.
In addition there were many other calls throughout the game that seemed to be very controversial in the US vs Slovenia World Cup game.
The goal was scored by Maurice Edu and was disallowed by world cup referee Koman Coulibaly of Mali, this was his first World Cup game that he refereed. Landon Donovan was the United States soccer player that kicked the free kick to Maurice Edu.
Many people believe this was a terrible call.
At least 6 Slovenians were pulling to the USA players. The goal was 100% valid.
