US Draws Against Slovenia (2-2) ... Robbed?

After going down two goals, the US rallies back to tie Slovenia, and it looked as if they were about to take the lead, but a mysterious penalty took away the goal. The United States still has a chance to advance but they must beat Algeria.

"The United States staged the greatest rally in its World Cup history Thursday, overcoming a two-goal halftime deficit to record a 2-2 draw with Slovenia at Ellis Park.

Michael Bradley's goal in the 82nd minute tied the game, giving his father, coach Bob Bradley, an early Father's Day present and the never-say-die Americans a fighting chance to reach the second round of South Africa 2010.
It appeared the Americans had pulled ahead in the 84th minute on a Maurice Edu goal off a Landon Donovan free kick, but referee Koman Colibaly apparently called a foul before Edu got the ball.

"I'm a little gutted to be honest," Donovan said. "I don't know how they stole that last goal from us. I'm not sure what the call was. He (the referee) wouldn't tell us what the call was."

"I still don't know why the goal was disallowed," Bob Bradley said after the match.
