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 . . .
The Americans (0-0-2, two points) will face a must-win situation against Algeria on June 23. . . .
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 still don’t know why the goal was disallowed,” Bob Bradley said after the match.
Yeah, well, I know why the goal was disallowed: Koman Colibaly hates America, that’s why. This is an international crime against truth and justice:
For the love of all that is holy! Those Slovenian scum were all over Bradley like it was pro wrestling! Some fag at Time magazine named “Sean” describes it:
On a free kick moments later, Landon Donovan delivered a beautiful ball into the box, which Maurice Edu knocked in to give the U.S. what looked like a historic victory. Gooooaaaal!!! But Coulibaly blew his whistle, and called a phantom foul on the Americans. The replay could not have been clearer: no infraction, the goal was legit. If anything, a hold on Bradley should have given the Americans a penalty kick . . .
ESPN commentator, and former Team USA defender, Alex Lalas called Coulibaly’s call “a disgrace.”
You’re damned right, it’s a disgrace. The CIA needs to capture Koman Colibaly, ship him to Guantanamo, and waterboard that terrorist bastard. Meanwhile, here is video of the schweet first goal by Landon Donovan:
Soccer is for fags and foreigners. Only our patriotic jingoism — USA! USA! USA! — gives us Real Red-Blooded Americans an excuse to pretend we actually care about the World Cup.
